I visited the Farmington today to test the waterproofness (if that’s a word) of my winter waders and to get in a little fishing. Lord, it was crowded for weekday in November. I visited five location above, below, and in the TMA. For me, the catching stunk. I blanked on nymphs, and it wasn’t until I switched over to streamers that I was able to bump up a couple fish. No one else I spoke to reported having much success, so maybe it was just one of those days. The water is still low and the rock garden effect remains.
A reminder that I will be tying and presenting “Wet Flies 101” this Saturday afternoon, November 5, at the Arts of the Angler show in Danbury. You can find everything you need to know here.
Finally, ladies and gentlemen, we have a tying video. It’s a steelhead attractor pattern, and I will post it tomorrow.
An 11th hour steelhead that came on the fly featured in my newest video.
Keep up the great work, Steve! We are looking forward to the video ( and more of those lamb chops)
I had the leftover scraps tonight along with the Mollydooker. Both did not suck.
Thanks for the update. I think I will leave the Farmington alone.
At the risk of sounding repetitive, I strongly dislike the river at this level.
