Farmington River Mini-Report 7/13/16: 1-for-90

I had 90 minutes to fish mid-day today. Sunny, hot, and a gusty south wind, so I figured the terrestrials-blown-into-the-water energy might work in my favor. Fished a three fly team of (from top to point) a drowned hopper, Drowned Ant, and SHBHPT. The venue was a long, snotty run that would be a very manageable wade at 240cfs (59 degrees at 3pm if you’re keeping score at home).

Didn’t I feel like a genius when a fat rainbow jumped on on the second cast. But, it was on the PT. And it was the only fish to net today. So that proves how little I know.

On the other hand, while much of the east coast was working, I was standing in a gorgeous river, fishing.

Maybe I’m not so dumb after all.

    I agree. Planning to get there tomorrow. And I’ll be happy with 1 fat rainbow myself.

    Not so dumb. Quite the opposite.
