120510_Ron and Kaden FF-2OTHER: Fished with John, Ted, and Glenda. Walked in at Mill Dam Eddy, and waded upstream to above the island. Ted caught a few fishing the left descending side below the riffle; his first two were nice browns. He then fished the left side of the left riffle using an elk hair caddis and caught several. We moved to a location between the riffles and he caught more in both the left and right riffles on the caddis. Wading out, Ted fished the right-hand side of the island, and had several takes, but no solid hook-ups. He ended the day with 14 or 15 fish, and missed others which refused to fully take the fly.
