I was wrong about a couple of things in my report for last Friday. I thought Josh Anantatmula was going to celebrate his 12th birthday soon. Well, it was his Dad Brian that had a birthday on November 1st and Josh wasn’t going to be 12, he is now 15 years old. Time has flown a lot faster than I thought since we started fishing together. I was right about where to go, and to try fly fishing. Rufus Woods produced again. Josh landed a dandy walleye right after we started below the first net pen, and we got a good triploid on our first pass, too. We got two more triploids and another walleye before moving down to the second set of net pens. I thought we could finish our limits of triploids here and give Brian a chance to try catching some with this fly rod. We did both. We got our remaining three to fill our limits on trout, and Brian released four with his fly rod while we were doing this. He started with a floating fly line, and then switched to a line with a sink tip. That was the best approach to catching these aggressive rainbow. A large black, Wooly Bugger type fly with barbell eyes and some flashabou was the best fly.
