FLIES USED: #14 gray Norfork River Scud, brown Wayne’s fly, #20 red/silver Zebra Midge

ROD USED: Winston 10’ 4-weight WT


OTHER: Fished alone. I walked in at Wayne’s and 6 people were in the tiny riffle across from his house, so I waded upstream and began fishing above Elisabeth Creek.  I cast the Norfork Scud a couple of times, but the chop on the water was so heavy, I switched to a brown Wayne’s fly to take advantage of the chop.  I was immediately rewarded with a fish.  I continued to get bites, catching two on Wayne’s fly and the other 5 on the zebra midge.  After only 25 minutes or so, I noted the strike indicator floating downstream at an increased speed and immediately began wading downstream to exit.  Once again, the forecast called for generation to begin at 1:00 PM, but it started early; SWPA’s forecast is wrong more that it is right!  I should have known; after all, one of the definitions of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
