Fish were consistently 16-19 inches. Fat, chunky rainbows in good health and hungry as bears just out of hibernation.
As a testimony to the change of the season, this summertime bug hitched a ride on my tube when the damp air became too much to keep his helicopter wings flapping. He stayed with me until I went ashore.
Trout continued to cooperate in a big way.
The fly selection wasn't at all complicated. Seal buggers early and chironomids later when a few started showing on the surface.
I hit the docks early. 5 PM and I called it a day with plenty of daylight left to stow my stuff and make the two hour drive home. Since my buggy friend was so faithful in hanging onto the tube, I gave him a nice resting spot to see out the remainder of his days. Made a pretty picture.
