I love living rent free in your spacious head.

Arrived upper mirror plant about 10:30 am. Surprised that nobody else was there on such a beautiful overcast day. Just a couple mutts sniffing around and acting like they expected me to have treats.

Got set up with intentions of walking to the bottom end of the field. Made it about half way and decided to sit down on the bank and have a beer and assess the situation.

Saw no bugs and no surface activity, so decided to tie on an old no name pattern that has produced in the past.

Took quite awhile to produce the first fish. As I continued to work up towards the flatter water of the pool above I noticed fish dimpling the surface, so I changed over to a dry.

I quickly lost confidence in the dry and as I entered the pool I tied on a flashback under a bobber and it was game on.

For the next two hours it was literally non-stop action. Granted they were all small browns, but it was one of those special days for sure. And to top it off, not another person in sight.

Reached the upper end of the pool about 3:30 and headed on out. Been a long time since I had them Smith River trouts mangle up some flies like they did today.

Very nice and always more fun when those picky fish are eating your flies.
