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...
