Consistent Bite in The Afternoon

Doug Rodricks

Report Date:

Some nice fish over the 10 lb mark have been coming to the net here. It has been a consistent bite in the afternoon from 11 – 2 pm. Fish are biting in calm conditions as well as windy. Beatles and streamers have been accounting for most fish with some good number days happening. Some fish to 20lbs have been caught during mid-day!

Balanced patterns are the new rage for nymphing, & streamer fishing.  We have been guide testing these patterns for several years, & I can honestly say they are the most significant improvement in fly design in over a decade. They are truly superior to conventional fly designs. The flies ride “parallel”; or “level” to the bottom giving them a far more realistic profile. The jig style hook becomes more effective as it seldom gets snagged on the bottom, & sets efficiently in the fishes mouth. These flies are intended to fish as your bottom fly in a multi-fly; or tandem rig. They are deadly fished solo as a streamer. Add these patterns to your quiver for all fisheries that you still water nymph; or cast streamers.   Click on “fly sales” on the nav bar above, hit “menu” first from a mobile device to access the nav bar.
