they said there was enough water there for them but i doubt it there were tons of trout in that pond
i have pics but when i scale them down they get blurry

the max depth it got was probably abot 10 feet (spring fed so it didn't freeze) and it was maybe a foot and a half

went back today and there was some more water but not much
i saw plenty of brown trout some big ones but no brookies or bows that were in there saw plenty of fry thought which is a good sign

brown trout fishery will remain but i don't know about the other species

similar to a very effective late season summer run fly 'down here' called the "Copper John."

Of late, it's been an absolute top end fly for hook ups. Several folks are using a heavy single egg pattern up front, and the copper john as the trailer.

The wire portion is done in copper, green or red. I've also seen a red-green combo of this but no idea if it's any more effective.

it's similar to a copper john but it is a lot smaller
and no wing case
