Woolly Bugger

Thanks for the bumper sticker offer.  On my trip I went with two friends, one of which has never caught trout and the other was somewhat experienced.  A few casting demonstrations and a few fly suggestions and we were all on some fish.  Total caught was 22 fish.  Started early with size 20 chartreuse copper johns and 20 bhpt under an indicator. Early morning fog was thick and when the fog broke the trout started eating.  Switched to size 18 bwo with a 20 brassie dropper then 18 sulpher with a 20 brassie then back to the previous combo.  Also casted a 18 sulphur emerger and caught a few.  TVA pulsed at noon and I tried a woolly bugger but as usual for me I had no success. Sure would like to become proficient with streamers.

Attached are some more SoHo pics plus one of my 4 year old underwater who just learned to swim.  Pics were taken with my new Pentax Wpi.
