November Days

It turned out to be not as cold as I expected today. However, it was overcast and foggy in the morning, with light south-west breeze. The fish were active, and Olives did show up, as they often do on gloomy early November days. I spent the entire day fishing pretty much two flies: black and brown leeches, and Olive dun imitations I tied yesterday. I brought and used only one rod-McFarland with Edgar Sealey (J.W. Young) reel. It worked like a charm...



Hey Vlad,

That is too much fun! : ) What a nice rod and fish photos! I really love this series photos with light paintbrush touch. The fish you caught has some awesome color/spots too. I enjoy reading it!
I believe your McFarland works like a charm! After cast friend's McFarland (5wt), I have to agree I have caught on this bug too... Very nice and your MaFarland is definitely is a special one!
Keep these great post coming!

Hey Mark,

This is one of my favorite streams. It has wild brown trout in its lower section, but in the summer months I also caught some nice smallmouth bass in the same area of the stream.

Last year in late October/early November I observed so many snipe migrating-they were on the stream banks...everywhere. I haven't seen a single one this year.
