As a participant of the 50 state game....my client this morning successfully caught fish in Vermont and scratched the Green Mountain State off his list...Life is good, fish hard!

So its been a while since I posted a "what to use" post...here is what I've been using: Chartreuse green stones, yellow adams wulff trailed by an ant, caddis either hackled or not in a tan 16, BWO, beetles, adams, usuals, Hide a bead nymphs 12-16, caddis pupa 14s, shushan postmasters, clousers, Black nosed dace, thunder creeks, copper snappers, and golden betsies. The mountain brooks are fishing OK if they haven't been beat up with too much pressure....the South Branch is holding up very well, Ferd Creek is decent but the state bird is very present (mosquitoes), City Creek is BEAT....the Mettawee and Battenkill are fishing like the Mettawee and Battenkill.... Lake fishing is ON! I'm actually going to fish myself tomorrow....by myself:) WOW, that doesn't happen very often. Its morning mode time of the year...the Trout get real lazy in the afternoon...for that matter the lake fish do too....there are scattered openings so don't think I can't fit you in! In the next week or so we should start seeing Tricos and better BWO hatches... Leaders are going to need to start getting longer and lighter on the big water. Add 3 feet of butt (20lb) to my 9'4X recipe...Thanks for the view! Let's go fishing soon

This is my daughter McKayla. When she was 12 or 13 years, I tried to take her fly fishing....but after a couple trips, I decided we would have a better time in the boat, lake fishing....as the years pass, I realized recently I never really taught my daughter (of all people) how to fly fish...so this last week our schedules meshed and we when trout fishing....after a quick casting lesson on the lawn we headed out to have a fun morning on the creek...
As many of you know, I am a fulltime custom fly tyer. Need flies for a trip give me a call or shoot an email....from Tarpon to Brook Trout, if it has a hook with materials attached with thread...I can tie it for you.... Below are a couple pixs of my most recent order to be shipped. These are heading to the Deschutes River for summer steelhead the end of August.
