Most takes were just as the fly was being lifted near the surface.

Taking my offering without hesitation.
How it piles up. Cold water and a hot spot together.
Odd looking red bug, make a note not to eat it again.
I managed to fool one. They do make a fuss when hooked.
Another open but tight spot. Is there a trout in there.
Yes there was.
Not the monster I assumed would be in there but a nice wild jewel still.
My walk back to the car was gentle. Lot's of fine memories today.

This is a recipe from 1890. This is a pattern that works for me.
Black Midge...purple silk body, black dubbed thorax and starling hackle.
This black midge is the same as the one above only it has a sparse dubbed body.
Brown Midge....brown silk body, brown dubbed thorax, and bleached starling hackle.
