Stillwater Dragon Pattern…

“Around the seel no tortur´d worm shall twine, no blood of living insects stain my line; Let me, less cruel, cast the feather´d hook, with pliant rod athward the pebbled brook. Silentt along the mazy margin stray, and with the fur-wrought fly delude the prey.”    John Gay, Rural Sports, 1720

Dragonfly…always a good sign

A personal favorite, particularly while fly fishing, the Dragonfly seems to bode well in the moment and in the days to come.

“Dragonflies are reminders that we are light/and we can reflect light in powerful ways if we choose to do so.”   Robyn Nola

October frenzy…

Rainbow Trout-fly fishing-net-fly-SwittersB

Oregon trout caught/released. Fly pattern: Callibaetis emerger

Cooler temps, and an all day feeding frenzy yielded many encounters with dining Rainbow Trout on an Oregon lake. The day started with Midges (Chironomids) and they kept coming off from early morning until a lull around 5PM. An emergence of the Callibaetis mayfly and a spinner fall added additional action just below the surface with large swirls and porpoising rises. Caddis fluttered about and there was the additional (rarely seen by me) Waterboatmen emerging and later splatting back through the surface film to swim toward the bottom. There was a sense of energy on the part of the fish, I hadn’t seen on recent outings. Colder mornings, geese flying South, foliage turning colors, the sun at a lower angle…not Fall yet, but one senses that late Summer feel.
