Getting out before the International Fly Tying Symposium

Since the International Fly Tying Symposium opens tomorrow there was only one thing I could do today...

I went fishing and had a great day, no one pattern fished better than another but the fish were one. Later in the day when the water warmed up (46ยบ F was the high) BWO were out an about.  Since  I was Euro-Nymphing  (a.k.a. Czech Nymphing) I did not have the rig to switch over to dries but no worries because they were on the nymph as well.

It was a great day out the start of a splendid weekend.   The rig I used today was mu Rock Work on the dropper,  and a my variarion of Hans Stephenson's "Bomb" as the anchor and a size 20 bead head BWO flash back nymph on the point.

Here are some of the results:

Tomorrow I'll try to post some live feeds the blog and my twitter feed for the International Fly Tying Symposium.
