When trout should hit the fly

If all goes well Sunday afternoon, I should have another chewed up fly like the one shown in this photo from a couple weeks ago. The fish smashed it over and over until the feathers started to loosen and fall off. It was a production fly.
It was also a fly I did not tie myself. It was given to me by a couple of heavy beer imbibers who knew little about catching trout.
But their fly worked.
Sunday and Monday's best times, according to the position of the moon and all the almanacs, should be in the early afternoons from 1 to 4 and 3 to 5.
We'll have another report on that and the water levels when we get back.
Keep the faith.

Your right. The bottled water thing is utter stupidity in the name of trendiness. I talked my spouse into giving it up. Now we filter our own water and use the same little plastic bottles over and over.
The hot days of August warming the trout streams here will soon cause me to switch over to stream smallmouth fishing. There are some biggies lurking out there looking for small spinners or plastics.
