    Another Humber Rainbow, no way!

    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.

    Nice!

    Are there any white suckers left in the Humber? Are they done spawning?

    I may go catch a couple of them for catfish bait...

    Muskiebait: There are still so many suckers under the bridge at Old Mill that when you look down all you see is a writhing mass of darkness.

    Jon: I might even check it out tomorrow morning. I think Dave said he wanted to scope it out early Wednesday. I'm game for that.

    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.

    I hooked into a smallie and several white sucker on those fake trigger-x salmon eggs. Just a single fake egg on a hook. Also hooked into a sucker on a stone fly on my fly rod.

    Koke txt me if you're heading there again this week

    Will do.

    When I went out yesterday it was a big waste of time. The wind made it nearly impossible to cast and I was the only stooge out there. It was cold and all I caught was a sucker.
