Tenuous Fishing Photos 18/52

Weekly tenuous photo:

Like something from the Bible

This was a hatch of sedge on the 5th May late afternoon – it is tenuous as the trout did not even glance at them!

    Classic blanket hatch…in some rivers fish even feed during these mass ascensions. It’s a classic event in many rivers in the US. Also known as the Mothersday Caddis Hatch. Check out http://www.Arkanglers.com, the Arkansas river in Salida Co, is a garnd place to be at this time of year. Size 14 black foam caddis and a copper john trailer in an 18. Good times….

    Even though it may be common classic event, it still amazes me when I see it happen. No fishies to be seen? Maybe a clear indication they are well fed and fat.

    Next week I’m headed out for a 3 day fishing trip with a buddy. I’ll send pics and reports when I get back.

    On another note, will the voting today affect your fishing? 😉

    Another massive hatch this afternoon. Again the fish were not interested. I spent 3 hours trying everything and did not get a touch. Thankfully I decided to have one last chuck and caught a nice 9″ fish!
