Last night I fished one of my favorite spots on the river. I managed to catch a few small trout subsurface on caddis nymphs and one on a stonefly dry. As the sun was going down, the dry fly action picked up; light cahills, tan caddis, blue winged olives, and the sulphurs were all on the river, but none in great numbers. I switched to a size 14 sulphur parachute and caught my biggest fish of the night (about 16 inches). As my eyes tired and it got darker out, I switched to a larger cahill parachute emerger, size 12 (I tied it with an extra large parachute). I fooled a few more fish and walked home. Oh yeah one more thing next time your out on the river bring bug dope.
