Ooh that smell

Finally got the skunk off today. Squeezed in 1 1/2 hours on the Swift River (Western MA). Got a 13 ' and a 9 ' rainbow. Fish were rising sporadically. Takes were slow and delicate and I pulled the fly away from several fish. Hooked up when I let the fish set the hook. Fish were taking small dark flies (march browns?) and only succes I had was with an 18 or 20 adams. Fly fell apart after awile and they would not consider anything bigger - which is all I had in the box. Kind of ignored my dry fly box this winter - back to the bench! Not much fight - kind of lethargic - but a blast anyways! Anyone else having any spring luck?
