The Humber smiled upon me again today but this time with a slightly bigger smile. While fishing this morning I caught another Humber trout on the fly. Again I was indi-rigging with a fly I tied from the scraps of a few wooley buggers. I used stray pieces of maribou as dubbing, a brass cone bead and some sloppy-cut crystal flash. It basically turned out looking like a tiny black nymph with eratic crystal flash arms. (I had 2 smallies hit the same fly earlier in the day which was a big surprise.)
Since I lost my entire fly box on Tuesday I had to tie a wack more flies. It's been a pleasure and so far I've replaced a third of the ones I lost with some real wild ones.
I've tried a few different rigs there but I've only really had some success with my fly rod drifting a weighted nymph under a float (indicator). I use that rig in the slower pools. Most people have success with float rods and roe bags.
Wow, some beautiful looking fish Ken, congrats. Season opens here tomorrow but there is still lots of ice on the rivers and a couple of feet on the lakes. Will be a while before i get my boat in the...
