Well my multi day trip turned into one single day, today. I wanted to hit the So Ho, weather looked good for some solid BWO action, cool rain all day is the forecast that I read. I was pouring down hard here, and I wasn't too excited about the drive over, but as 9:30 rolled around I headed out the door. I planned to arrive around noon and catch the falling water from the mornings generation.

It rained all the way to Newland, but when I crossed the continental divide the gray clouds parted and blue skies with white clouds greeted my. So much for an awesome BWO hatch.

It took a little longer that I had calculated but I was fishing by 12:30 or so. The water was still up and I nymphed likely runs.

The bite was off and I had to work for the fish. All of them took a bwo nymph of one pattern or another. Finally towards the end of the day, it started to rain and the fish rose steadily to the bows. Not really a heavy hatch by any means. The wind blew hard for a while too. I managed to take a couple on the surface.

Right choice on the watershed :)
Nice looking fish :D
You suck ;)
To bad about the people that were involved in the wreck on 77, man that looked awful :(

Yea, I'm redneck, so what!

Woolly Bugger

yeah, the fog was bad enough going up the Blue Ridge escarpment on 421, I hate that climb up I-77 when the weather is bad.

I've been stuck in traffic coming home on 77 before, another reason that I avoid it.

Despite the fog I made it to the river in 2:30
