This summer heat has me fishing in the morning hours and getting off the water earlier. It's not good for me or the trout. I'm about ready for winter again. I'm a girl that would rather fish with snowflakes falling on my nose than brushing off horse flies. Haha.
One thing about summer heat, it has helped my diet. You don't feel like eating as much when you are hot. You tend to drink more water and stay hydrated. I've been drinking 3/4 gal of water each day and since Feb., I have lost 34 lbs. Lots of watermelon, cottage cheese, and fresh veggies lately. Doesn't that sound yummy? Lol. Well, we are getting it done anyhow... Downside of weight loss... Baggy waders!
The dog days of summer. Keep em' wet. Send em' off quickly.

When you find a fly pattern that undeniably works, put on two of them. Double your chances! I just had a friend put on two dries, same pattern. First time ever, she had a double catch on two dries! Crazy stuff. When nymphing, I use a slightly larger attractor ahead of my end fly. But, if I am constantly catching on that end fly... Heck, double it up! No need for the attractor. Two PMD's was all I needed. And my line often has two sow bugs, one tan and one grey. If that bug is what they are taking... Give it to them! =)
