8/11/11 - Our weekly trip to the Little Juniata. Finally some
good fishing with hoppers and midge pupae. Thank God that
we were blessed with this beautiful day of fishing and for
keeping us safe!
If you look at this poor quality picture closely, you will see
the midge larva on the point of the hook. This isn't the first
time this has happened. I now have a good imitation of
this larva. Can you imagine how many of these larva must
be in the stream to manage hooking one!
If these midge larva are still available next week, they should
provide great fishing fished on a clear intermediate line and
some 7X or 8X Stroft tippet. A tungsten bead is the only way
to natuarally get this small fly into the feeding zone.
However, these fish aren't exactly brilliant so you can have a
good enough day with hoppers or ants.
