Orvis Dealer Summit...

Just a quick live look in at the meeting. Lots of good stuff happening for all in the Orvis Family (Guides/Dealers). Orvis is going to attack the industry over the next year, can't wait to watch it unfold. Fishing  update to follow in the next few days...

Brookies...





Nice looking brookie fooled on a copper john...


Great colors on this guy as well. 

After the heavy rains that we had off and on, we did manage to make the most of our guided trips to anywhere that was fishing good. This father and son worked Dunbar for a handful of brookies and a couple browns while nymphing in the morning. As the water began to clear a bit more, some Blue Quills were out and fish were starting to take a few.

Yough Float...

Matt and Mike float a section while they drift down to pick me up.


Almost past this spot up, but made one cast to land this fish. Best bow from the river of the year..

Matt, Mike, and I floated the Yough  in July and I finally got around to posting some photos from the outing. Water was great when we started and the fishing was solid as well. About half way through, we noticed that the water levels have dropped significantly. This really turned the fishing off the second half of the day. But all in all, a 20 fish day on the river isn't too bad. All bows and not one brown all day.
