What a difference a week makes! 67* and sunny. I'm half-baked.

Anyway I got over there about 7:30 and conditions were horrible, no wind, bright sun and warm temperatures. It in fact made for difficult fishing conditions. I sort of missed the cold gray days that bring out the bwo's.

I tried the Davie knot. Tied on the dropper with it. Hooked a beast of a fish that ran all over the pool, then leaped completely out of the water, headed up to the next pool and porpoised again. It looked like a football, but when it hit the water the Davie knot failed... argggggg!

Hooked into a couple of other nice fish that came unbuttoned in the fight. Here are some pics of some of the fish I netted...

Most of the fish were on nymphs.. but there were a few risers that I hit with a bwo and took two from the surface... there really wasn't much of a hatch...

Great way to end it WB

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

I was there yesterday as well. Looks like everyone in a three state region got fishing gear for Christmas and headed to the SoHo to try it out. Biggest crowds I have seen since the summer.

I was there Friday and it was a zoo then too. I am getting burned out. I need some mtn stream action. I hope to hit the mtns next week. I just can't handle the crowds like that.

It wasn't too crowded where I was on the river, in fact I had all the water I wanted all to myself for most of the day. I got the beat down from the sun and finally took a break at 3 is and went to Webb's or a hot-dog and drink. Then I went off of Big Springs Road and found a nice run empty. I usually catch a dozen bow out of this one deep fast slot. But not yesterday! Around five I moved on back to where I started the day and there was no one to be seen up or down the river.

I fished it the following day, Sunday afternoon - Big Springs just below the upper end.  Got on the water about 1:00, at end of the rainy front - fishing was good for about an hour or so 'til the clouds started thinning out - then they just pretty much shut down except for a couple more fish deep-nymphed.  First time I fished Big Springs all year - man the didymo seems to be a lot worse there than up higher...like a thick carpet in places.. :(

Nice report though  0--0
