We are back in the thunderstorm cycle and there are a few brewing as I write this. I guided the Wood today and found the fishing to be OK. We caught fish and tried a bunch of different patterns. Small #16 tan craneflies, PMD's, #16 tan caddis, #12 tan caddis and they all worked with some success. Our water is in great shape and hopefully the normal mid-August doldrums don't really happen this year on the Wood. We'll see.
Here's a slideshow that is absolutely worth checking out. It's of the recent winner of the Follow The Light Foundation grant. The 4 other finalists also have suberb shots. http://vimeo.com/13187971
Here's a shot of a flying ant taken at Silver Creek:
Dreamy and fast. Airborn rainbow:
