I spent last Friday at the Roaring River Trout Park in southwest Missouri with the plan to pick up the species I caught there in April only on a Killer Bugger this time. I did not get a stone roller like I'd hoped but I caught lots of Duskystripe Shiners. In fact that's almost all I caught. There was some color variation between individuals and I hoped I might have more than one species but the folks at the nature center assured me that all my pictures were duskystripes and that the river was just full of them.

"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.
