    Same- I think I may have seen you walking out of the upper east near harvard saturday with my buddies. Bounced around 3-4 spots to catch a handful of fish in the wind- it should not be this hard 3rd week in april. Atleast the bugs were there- I did not see bugs on several stretches during the weekend and as a whole the hendrickson hatch has been very medicore up there this year on most sections.

    Hendricksons are GONE except upper reaches. March Browns are showing for the last couple of days already, at least on main and lower branches.

    Saw decent numbers of Hendricksons on the Lower West yesterday. Mudbug's 5 year old is an absolute ace at IDing bugs. He sits in the back of the boat and scoops them off the surface with a little net. "DAD I GOT A CADDIS" -- It was ridiculously cool.

    Oh yeah, and he called me "moosekid" all day which was pretty awesome as well.

    Lacey: Where'd you get that pistol?
    Blevins: At the gettin' place.

    Sunday was a different story....we hit the Beaverkill mid morning and the wind was still a pain in the ass, but caddis filled the air and the trout were on spent flies. It seemed like every fish in the river was taking flies off the surface, and with shortened leaders and well timed casts, we had a great day on the water.

    I also was on the Beaverkill over the weekend and the wind was tough but the fishing was great. Lost my hat in the wind but that was an excuse to go buy a new Tilley which I like a lot. Also, it was the first time I tried out my new Thebault silk line. It cast well in the wind, floated like a cork and picked up off the water with ease. All and all a great weekend.
