    Default sore arm and grayling on the fly....VIDEO

    Helmuth and I hit the clearwater this past Saturday and it was awesome. It rained the entire way south and once we got on the river the clouds started to part. Once the sun came out and the temps started to warm up the switch was turned on and the bugs came alive and so did the grayling. Check out the video and let us know what you think

    Regards,

    Nice video! Were you guys out ther the 17th or the 10th? A buddy and I also dropped into the Delta C.W. Saturday the 17th. The bugs were hatching and fish were going nuts. What flies were yo using if you don't mind me asking? We had a lot of success on Blue Dunns, Mosquitos, & Olive Caddis. Truelly love fishing the C.W. for grayling. Again, awesome video!!! Makes me want to purchase a video camera.

    Well Richie looks like you got one to bite lol.

    CrazedBOWhunter:I'll let richie give you the details on the fly selections as he is the "Yoda" in that department and I'm just a boat driver. We were there on the 17th and it was blast as always, approx 40 fish brought to hand. The only downfall was a made my St. Croix about 8 inches shorter Oh well what can you do.

    Good luck to everyone, hopefully we can knock out a few more videos before summer is over!

    crazedBOWhunter: I'd be happy to share info as the CW is an awesome fishery. Around noon we were right in the middle of a huge mayfly hatch. It was insane. The water looked like it was boiling. At one point I just stopped fishing and watched the mayflies in the slack water get slammed. That fly was forced into retirement after about an hour. We were also having some luck on irresistible adams #12 and #14, then I tried a (bare with me for this description) flash back, hares ear version of a BH midge #16 and that managed to bring a nice fish out of some structure. As the day passed we went with a tent wing olive caddis and that was what the grayling ordered.

    now that I think about it I wish I would have got some footage of the hatch because that reminded me of a classic giant green drake hatch like I'm used to in the southeast.

    I'm starting to think that the coldwater temps zaps the energy out of the anglers and that is what fuels the fish to fight as hard as they do...hahaha. I can't wait to go back.
