Fishing Update / Jan 10th / 11

Jocelyn & I went out for the day to wet a line (or should I say froze a line) in hopes of a fresh Steelhead. The water conditions were perfect but we are headed into a high pressure meaning cold weather for our parts, somewhere just below freezing temps! It was cold enough to ice up our guides & lines but overall it was a great day. We only managed to fish 2 nice pools due to a late start and an early departure as we both have other commitments to meet these days. My wife is going to school for the first time in 20+ years and is loaded with home work aside from being mom to our son etc... so needless to say, when the rear opportunity to go swing a fly comes we do our best regardless of fishing conditions! I have mentioned before about these Glow Worm Tube Flies I sell on my web site and how well they work. This is another example of the results, the trout can't resist them either! The great thing about this fly is it is very light weight for such a large presentation meaning most fly-fishing outfits can cast it with no troubles! this fly lights up beautifully in the water as it is tied with UV polar chinelle which doesn't retain water when you have to pick it up and cast it again. Many anglers never think about large flies like this for trout and in some places it would likely not make sense, but our sea-run fish love them and I know that enticing fish in colder waters to chase a big meal verses a small one is usually in your favor... We had a great time, I hope there's another day on the water with my wife soon holding one of those fresh chrome Steelhead:)
