Regaining Confidence

After a fairly slow day in the mountains on Friday, I was looking to catch a bunch of fish. I noticed that the generators would finally be off on the Caney Fork and decided to head down Sunday morning. Being a bit lazy, I didn’t get to the river until around 9:30. There were plenty of fish working and some midges hatching so I tied on my trusty zebra midge and started to catch fish right away. I never had to try another fly the whole time. There were some good sized browns working that I watched for awhile but they never ate what I was throwing. My catch consisted of about 50/50 ‘bows and browns which was nice since I normally catch more ‘bows. The best fish of the day was a nice brown right around 16 inches. Anyway, enough talking and on to some more pictures…

    Were you freelining the zebra midge, or using an indicator?

    Nice pics! The last (brown in the weeds) has a painterly feel to it.

  2. I almost always fish the zebra midge under a parachute Adams (or other suitable dry fly) as a dropper which is how I was fishing it this time. It is amazing how many strikes you miss this way though. I have sight cast to specific fish numerous times with this rig and watched the fish eat and spit the midge back out without ever moving the dry.
