Iso's...

Spent yesterday on the river. It was tough durning the day (90 degree heat and not a cloud in the sky) but we did manage to get a few to eat. As it has been for the past month the evening was solid. Isonychias were good for almost 2 hours. And the evening wrapped up with Cahills. We were able to land a few and managed some pictures. The first photo is my largest trout to date on the Yough (it ate an Iso dry). This beast was 23ish inches in length, but the girth was unreal. If I had to guest I would have to say close  to 8 pounds. All other fish were are normal healthy Yough trout, with another 20 incher making an appearance. Enjoy...

Tying Some Slate Drakes This AM....



Beautiful morning in southwestern Pennsylvania for sure. Decide to take the dog outside as well as my tying vise to the deck to tie up some parachute slate drakes. Mixed up some rusty brown and Adams dubbing to get the right color. Looks perfect.

Float Last Weekend...



Jonathan floated with Mike and I on the river the past week. Finally got him to hook up on a Yough River brown while throwing some dries. 


He was rather pumped for sure...

Caught this fellow on a bugger early in the trip..


Smallie on the warm side of the river...
This bow put up a great fight...


Pig Brown...


Great day on the river.
