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.

Saturday night we went to a concert at the Double Oaks B&B to listen to Sam Frazier and the Side Effects and drank too much wine while listening to great but loud music.

Sunday morning was a bit rough and wobbly and with some resolve I drove up to the smith, parked at the mirror plant I thought about taking a nap as the sun warmed the insides of the car and outside it was 50 with the wind blowing at 7 knots.

After a few minutes I got out and geared up to make the walk across the field. The six wt was rigged with a crayfish that I had been trying out on the carp in the pond, remembering the crayfish that I saw in the smith a while back I decided to keep it on despite the stout leader.

It appeared to be fishing well and I expected to have a hit with every cast .  Maybe I wasn't getting down deep enough! Finally I had a nice fish come off the bank and follow the fly. I may have stripped a little to far and the fish turned back!

I fished on for a while longer as the shadows grew and I wasn't really feeling much like staying any longer, so I packed it in.
