trout beating

Since the saltwater bug has not taken over yet, and I still need to put the first notch in my new 4 wt, I fished one of the Plymouth ponds on Sunday:

Started out raining and mid sixties, but as the rain cleared the temperature slowly fell, mist covered the water, midges and gnats started hatching, and the trout began to rise consistantly----in the center of the G*d D&%m pond.

I spent 2.5 hours casting nymphs, dries, streamers and even drifting a san juan worm with a strike indicater (i.e. fly version of bait fishing)to no avail, while the trout remained a good 30' beyond my cast.

Sure enough, right before I gave up, the berkley power bait man 20' away from me took a 20" 3 lb.+ brown.

I am going back to the rivers, as I do nothing but take a beating stillwater trout fishing...
