Hit a pretty popular small freestoner on Friday. Picked up 2 on a pheasat-tailed nymph, then I noticed a few small sippers around the 100's of caddis flies fluttering around. First one to sip my fly I missed and thought they might actually be minnows or chubs, but I haven't gotten one a dry yet this year so I kept at it. I was surprised when I set the hook on the next one and soon netted a 15"er. Missed another one then managed to slip on a rock and put the rest down before they quit feeding.

Re: sippers

Nice photos as always. Friend and got into some good dry fly fishing on a free stoner this past Sunday. A good caddis hatch was happening and they were sipping them in constantly. He was using a size 16 adams with good success and out of curiosity I tied on one of my black McMurray ant patterns and was hooking up on the sippers quite often.

Got to take camera along next time out.
