Headed out with the usual crew of cabin fevered pals for the weekend. Had one new fella out with us this year. He survived.

Well, we had a pretty sweet week fishing for Brookies, Rainbows and Browns. The weather couldn’t have been better with a couple of cool, overcast days and a few hot sunny days as well. Numerous bugs were hatching all day long and falling in the evening. All day long we had sulphurs, blue winged olives, pale evening duns, brown drakes, grey drakes and the infamous and massive green drakes. Several different caddis species were hatching and egglaying as well. As usual, we were in Grey county for this expedition. For the most part, I’ll let the pictures do the talking! Still lots of fiddleheads in the flood plains up there! Tasty treats they are! We fished some very small creeks
