Orvis School Alumni





About a week ago I had the chance to fish with a couple of alumni from our Orvis Fly Fishing School. We battled low water conditions and spooky fish, and still persuaded a few to eat. All of the action that day came from a size #10 foam grasshopper. Most of the fish that were willing to cooperate came from under overhanging branches and along the banks. Both John's seem to have the bug and will be forces to wreck en with on the streams in the near future. As you can see above a few of our fish are starting to flare out and get their fall spawning colors. As for the streams we still need rain but cooler temps have kept the fishing consistent. I am pretty optimistic that the fall will shape up and fish well...

Bassin'...



This is the same Bass from the post below just another view. This is the best pic as far as seeing the mouse pattern. I will take a picture of the pattern and post later, it has been crushing big fish for us this summer...
P.S. ~ I can almost smell chrome...it's coming quick!!!

No trips today...






Had the day off so Larry and I decided to try to catch some fish for ourselves. The first stop on the trip was the North Branch of the Potomac River. We had some success there with beetles fished along the bank, and Larry picked up this nice Golden Rainbow in a fast run on nymphs. As the day progressed the fishing slowed, so we headed back across the border to Pennsylvania. We fished the evening with some success and were able to find some fish willing to rise to our dry flies. It was nice to get out and do some fishing on our own. Now it's time to get back to work and finish the season strong, I think we are in store for some great fall fishing. So if you get a chance look us up in October and November...
