Now, what is your excuse going to be? Bugs are hatching, trout are feeding,
and the water levels are a little high (and that can help the catching). There is still
some snow left but as of yesterday afternoon, is was melting fast.
I fished one hour yesterday afternoon and caught three rainbow trout. I was testing
another one of our new "Perfect Fly" products out which I will write about Monday.
They are our Perfect Fly "KISS" Strike Indicators.
Everyone have a nice weekend.
