use small scuds and wear warm liners under your waders!

The fishing stunk like POO!

Fished beats 9-11 and got SKUNKED. On the walk back I took the liberty to cast a line and drift a few of the other beats. Managed to pick up 3 Brookies and pricked a HUGE Rainbow on a Streamer Fly I tied that I named after a friend of mine : Keegans Killer.

Pattern:
Hook: 6x long
Tail : Golden Pheasant Tips
Body : White Antron
Rib : Pearlescent Tinsel ( medium )
Underwing : White Marabou
Wing : Olive Marabou over Chart. Flashabou
Throat : Red Arizona Diamond Braid.

I know the stink of POO all too well and any fishing at all is better than it. ;) The streamer sounds interesting, how about a picture
