Some flies and fish

Caddis box, and some trout I caught from 3:30-4:30 yesterday afternoon. Loving the caddis pupa patterns these days. And the middle row is kind of a peeping caddis/ caddis pupa hybrid. Not sure if anyone ever did this or not. It popped in my head so I had to try it out. First trout I ever caught on it was that nicer brown.


I also caught a holdover bow, but didn't want to mix it in with these wild brownies. Love catching wild trout anymore.

I tied this box of flies up for a new fly fisherman. He told me he was afraid to use two flies because he didn't want to lose any.


I wrote on the box,


"DON'T BE AFRAID TO USE 2 FLIES"
MERRY CHRISTMANS.


lol

Nice ties mike. Great looking fish. Doesn't seem like there are many fishing or even thinking about fishing this time of year. So for I have found November and December to provide some of the best fishing of the year. This is my first year doing any trout fishing outside of the April - may time frame so catching trout year round is a new concept and has been very rewarding so far.

My favorite time to fly fish is from December to Mid April. March is probably my favorite month though.

It is quickly becoming one of my favorite times as well. I only had a few outings in November but they were 20+ fish outings that lasted 3-4 hours. I went out 12/23 for my December fishing outing and caught 45 in 3 1/2 hours. All stocked fish but that is primarily what is convenient around me. Its really hard not to want to fish in the colder months. I know I am bound to have a few bad days but no bugs, cooler temps, and I have the place nearly to myself. Its really a great time to get out. It will be even better once I get new waders. I have a really slow leak at the boot/wader seam which eventually becomes a problem if I stand in deep water to long.

There are tons of bugs, just under the water
