I would have guessed the same as TroutSoup. I should have brought my gear when I had an appt in Glenwood a month ago. Rare warm day with no wind. Had a hard time staying in my lane. Kept seeing awesome runs with low flows. Prime conditions. UGH!!! I dumb.

Thanks for the fish porn. What an awesome day for you!! Love when those windows open in March and April. The gorgeous day sandwiched between cold, windy and wet snowstorms. Giant hungry fish.

Appreciate that bharper!! I saw him (or his fin) rise on the other side of the run early in the day and knew he was fairly large. So I was throwing stuff his direction throughout the morning but nothing was working. Tried all the ol' standby's (zebra midge, squirmy worm, mercury midge, etc) and nothing. Switched up to an egg pattern and a grey RS2 and second cast...boom. Man that was a moment!!

Awesome! Way to stay determined and weed through all your presentations! It produced a true beauty! Iíve caught a fair number of M.A. Bows but Iíve only caught one Brown!

Bharper, yeah, for some reason the MA Brown has escaped me also! I'm really trying to be better with "in game" adjustments. In earlier days, I would've just kept chucking the same flies at him and decided he just wasn't eating. Now I'm taking a couple minutes to re-assess, maybe taking a couple steps one direction or another to get a slightly different angle, adjusting weight, and finally flies. So funny how it's taken me years to just slow down a little bit ... and instead of focusing on quantity of casts/drifts, trying to achieve more variation and quality drifts.

Keep up the good work! I get stubborn at times not changing lures and moving to fast to get to the next hole! 🎣🍻
