The weather forecast changed a lot during last week. It was quite misty on my way driving up to the river but when I almost got there, the sky cleared up.
Here we come, another beautiful Sunday after all!
Got three bites in the first 90mins but they were all incomplete hook-ups, dropped and felt them like short and soft bites. Hopefully, fish get started becoming more active as the temperature rises later on.
After 100mins from the start, finally hooked up a good one at one of my most confident drop offs, Very strong!
Caught him in my net.
A nice 4lb jack, nearly 22 inches in length.
Okay, Anyway, I fished one for today, not a easy day though...
Keep walking upstream under the sun shine.
And at my favorite fast run, a big one emerged to my dry at the first cast but didn't take it. No matter how many more cast I made, it never showed again, never take the dropper nymph, either.
Then I took a short lunch break to rest myself and the spot and restarted after 20mins. Before the first cast, I changed the dropper nymph from #12 Horn case caddis to #14 Phesant Tail.
And then, the fish took the nymph at the second cast in the fast run.
"Yes! it worked!!"
He got hooked up at the bottom of this fast boulder run and kept running all the way up stream into the next pool above. Never stopped!
Finally ready to land him.
A cool jack, awesome fish!
The colour is stunning, too.
As autumn is near, I think that jack's colours are changing to more like breeding season ones.
Holding 5lb, 23inches quality fish in my hands. Good day!
Caught the third fish, just a 2 pound one.It seemed that fish got more active than they had been in the morning. Not much activities but still better.
Sheep, sheep sheep. Uhhhh, where to fish next?
I tried to fish a new stretch where I hadn't been before.
A cute one like 14inches.
The last fish in the evening. Great force!
A nice fish nearly 2.5lb.
Not that big but good enough to end up the day with.
Bye, see you around!
Today's my bag was five fish and the first and the second fish were really nice jacks.
But fishing is getting not easy that's what I've been finding since the last weekend. All the fish were on nymphs, none of them on a dry today. I know the summer will be over soon but I just want more dry fly action for the rest of the season. Try more cicada next week??
