Clear Fork river, Ohio
Took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and fished the Clear Fork of the Mohican River in North Central Ohio. I grabbed my Zerosum 360,6:4 had headed out.
Black Stoneflies were out in small numbers, and I managed to convince a few (!)holdover stocker Browns that my pattern was close enough.
The hatch started about 1:30 PM and all fish were caught by 'fluttering' the fly to mimic ovipositing. Great day on the water.
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin
"Study to be quiet." - Izaak Walton 1653
"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662
As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
