    An actual fishing report. While you boobs opine about too many drift boats and whethe

    Got out for the Saturday evening festivities. Reports were that bugs were heavy the previous evening and fish were looking up. Got to the stream around 6:45. Couple of boobs darted in ahead of me heading to the top of the section. I waited 15 min and waded up to about 75 yards downstream of them. Rises began sporadically on the far bank. Very few bugs coming off so started with an ISO which drew no interest. Slightly upstream were 2 or 3 risers so I turned and cast upstream to no avail. 3 steady risers but no takes. Switched to a Cahill size 14 and moved up to feed him the fly. Another 6 drifts no luck. I stopped and observed and finally saw a small orange colored sulphur get a solid eat. Quick switch out to put on my fly. 3 perfect drifts and friggin nothing. Ok 30-40 minutes of effort and nada. So I figured it’s me

    Just kidding I swapped out my leader (too heavy). I then decided to put on a big size 10 Rusty Spinner. 2nd drift and bam this fish tomahawked the fly and was off to the races. Beautiful wild brown. Nice Father’s Day gift. Fished until 930 and brought several fish to the net. Great evening on the stream.

    Looks like a nice night out Macfly but tell us the real story... The person taking the photo caught the fish for you so you could come back with some cockeyed story about how you had an unbelievable evening.

    I think it’s an old picture. No one wears 1990’s Simms vests anymore
    with curved brim hats. None of the cool kids would be caught dead
    without a sling purse and a flat brimmed trucker hat hammering streamers to the bank in their new stealthcraft drift boat. Definitely an
    old picture, nice try Mac! Did you photo shop the neck buff in ?lol!

    Just kidding... nice report and fish....

    I thought you sold all your fishing gear?




    Nice fish, you boob. I'll be up terrorizing the wild browns this coming Friday - Sunday. That's why it is currently pouring rain, in case you were wondering.....

    Macfly, Great looking fish. It had to be on the B’kill. I was up there the first week in June and had a ball. I only fished a March Brown and could not keep the trout off the fly. If I caught one I had to catch at least 30 trout in 4 days of fishing. Every one was a Brown and very healthy looking and fat. The water was clear and around 350 cfs. Bill the mailman

    Great looking trout! And for the record I still use my shorty Leonard's vest from the early 80's.

    Lol! I’m usually a vest guy too, if I’m wading. . I have a whole collection from the 80’s
    Till now. I’ll sometimes use a chest pack , but could never see myself
    With a sling purse. They might be practical to a degree, but it’s too
    Hipster for me. If a vest was good enough for lefty Kreh , Charlie Brooks
    and it’s inventor Lee Wulff it’s good enough for me.

    Great thing about Mac is that he publishes a fine fishing report every time he goes out and actually catches a fish.

    Bad thing is we have to wait nearly 5 years between reports.
