Playing Catch Up

Back at the grindstone once again this week. The weather here in SW Montana is looking great for the rest of the week, so I might even get out and fish a few hours on the lower Madison provided the winds stay down. Sounds like they guys in the shop have been doing well on midge dries the last week so I might even take along the Tom Morgan bamboo for its once in a lifetime cherry poppin'.

Midge dries on the lower can - as most things can be - sometimes be ridiculously complicated. Blanket bug hatches and not a fish on the rise, throw in some shadows or clouds and boom it's on. The nice thing about it is that the fish usually aren't too picky when they do decided to come up so anything from a small Wulff to a micro midge adult will usually work when presented with reasonable accuracy.

I thought that I headed to Mexico on this Friday but it's not until Saturday and I already scheduled the guys in the shop to cover a fishin' I will go.
