John,

Now thats pressure, a TV camera crew filming your attempt at catching a large brown trout. Good luck but I would let them know what you think the probability of success is, because this is "fishing" and not "catching".

There are a lof of uncontrollable variables in fly fishing for trout and salmon, like the bright sunny blue bird weather I was confronted with on Friday. 30 miles to the west it was cloudy all day where the NE winds were blowing cloud cover off of lake michigan. Bright sunlight can really put down salmon and steelhead expecially when you cannot find shaded deep cool pools and structure where they will hide.

Oh well best of luck with the filming.

Hal

P.S. This is how I felt after Fridays fishing trip.
