    Another WTS today

    Today I ventured into Satan's Pit Creek and I did amazingly better than the last time I was there. The water was very low but extremely cold along with a cool air temperature in the low sixties this morning.
    Again the fly was a #16 grey parachute with grizzly hackle which always seems to do the trick for me when prospecting small streams for cooperative trout.

    I really thought that today would be a bust, as the first 30-40 minutes after entering the stream produced nary a looker. However as I made my way up stream I started connecting with a good number of browns that were willing to come up from the bottom to take my offering. I don't know how many fish I ended the day with, but I can tell you it was multiple 10's of fish. Here are a few of the little numbers that inhabit this stream.

    I'll never figure out how this place was built down there along the stream.

    For anyone that uses fly dust to dry off their flies I would like to tell you about the product that I purchased this past winter. It was hydrophobic fumed silica from here.

    The price was $17.00 for two quarts and I can attest that the stuff works as well as the small store bought bottle that goes for $6.00. I just reload the store bottle that has the brush in the cap and Bob's your uncle.

    That stuff is a dangerous lung irritant. Its going to be hard to fish dragging an oxygen bottle with you around the stream

    To look good is to fish good
