With a break in the hot weather and the promise of a cloudy day, I felt compelled to load my fly rod and waders into the car this morning and go find a trout stream. It was a lovely day to be out, but then there is something to be said for any day spent on a trout stream.
The weather was perfect, cool with a bit of a breeze. It looked like it might rain, but it didn’t. We haven’t had a good rain in quite some time now. Even the bugs cooperated today – there were plenty of adult caddis around as well as some craneflies coming off the water. The only thing missing were the trout, none of which seemed to be aware this was a perfect day for fishin’. Sometimes the trout just don’t come to the party.
