Water Level: seems up a bit
Water Color: murky
Fish Species: Coho,

Pattern Color: Dark Patterns were more effective
Fishing Quality: Still slow all things considered, but my best day
in Indiana ever (so far ;) )
That's it, nothing else to say. I was very seriously
considering that I'd never buy an Indiana fishing license again
after such a poor year's worth of effort spent on the Tribs. Apparently
this coho was too young to stick with the program a.k.a. "Don't
bite MP's flies".
So I dedicate these Coho pics to Dave @ Creekside
Outfitters and Bart (Chromeseeker), both of whom have been very
instrumental in me FINALLY landing a fish in Indiana. Furthermore,
I dedicate these pics to Rich Brown (FAT) for getting me into nightfishing
for salmon. Heck, I dedicate this one to myself too, and to the
curse, and to all those other folks who have yet to land a fish
in Indiana. Finally, I dedicate this to all anglers who show perseverance
in the face of adversity....persistence pays off.
BTW, Bart hooked up like on his 10th cast but didn't
land it. The magic fly for me tonight was a home-tied leaded flying
bunny with chartreuse tail and purple palmered body. No glowing
components in tonight's offerings. Light-colored flying bunnies
produced squat...stick to dark if nightfishing. Check out the fish
reports at CreeksideOutfitters.com
for Dave's Flying Bunny Pattern; at some point it won't be there
anymore so get it while you can!
