Summertime conditions in Vermont

We have summertime conditions in Vermont. With all the rain we had the conditions are perfect and the fishing has been excellent! There are a bunch of open dates in July and August. I want to fish half or 3/4 day mornings to avoid the heat of the day.
This Brown Trout was a STUD 21" X 14"...calulated to 5.14 lbs...caught on a WMD sz 16...GOOD STUFF!
There is even some of these mixed in every once and a while:)
Thanks for the view and please stay tuned! The flyfishing for Trout in southern Vermont is far from over!

I can't remember in 25 years of fulltime guiding ever having adult sisters without a parent! We had a great time and were very successful. Beginners are always welcome and women should not be afraid to try flyfishing. We learned how to basic and false cast, chuck & duck with an indicator and get good drifts. The Rainbows were liking their drifts and we caught a bunch including a first fish on a fly...GOOD STUFF!
Alot of times...I believe taking turns is the best way to learn how to get good drifts and see the watching you can really see what I'm trying to get the person fishing to do...sometimes the observer can also assist in explaining how to do it :) we really had fun
Thank you Donald, Aruna and Nisha for the trip and the great pixs!

GOOD STUFF! Thanks for the view and please stay tuned!
