The first stop was just below a dam and there were fish feeding on the surface, but for the life of me I couldn't see what they were feeding on. So logic told me to put a Baetis dry on a see what happens. I threw to this fish and that fish, but all offers were ignored.
So I wandered out to the T part of the "dam" below and cast to the edge of the bushes on the other side. I guess I should mention that I was using my regular fly rod, not Tenkara. I managed one hit and run, but that was it. I walked a little downstream to see if I could get any interest there and I found what was hatching. Only problem, what ever it was was so small I couldn't even tell what it was. Had to be at least a 23 or smaller.

On to secret spot #3.
|High Mountain "Lake"|
On the way back down the hill we stopped and scoped out a small creek that is just Tenkara intensive. I'll hit that on the next trip up and see if there is anything there.
I know this is not my usual "tell everything" post, but I prefer to keep my body intact for the next fishing trip. So thanks for understanding and I'll keep you updated on how the future trips go. This is kind of like Mizlan over at Dark Art Caster and his Village X. All the best places are hush hush.
Till next time.
ahhh yes, the secret spot! I know it wellReplyDelete
I hate when they're eating those tiny bugs. You offer them a whole meal in one fly and they turn their nose up.ReplyDelete
Nice water Mark.
Outstanding looking waters and the towels are background with a nice brown like that in the picture. Thanks for sharing
When they're on those tiny bugs I often take it as a cue to create a Wooley Bugger hatch. I suppose a Black Panther Martin is pretty much the same thing. Great recon!ReplyDelete
btw, love the loincloth look.
Yep, I have the same secrete spot. It is a real honey hole.ReplyDelete
For some reason I LOVE doing recon. lol most people I go with just want to fish but I love to discover new fishing holes and marvel at the potential for countless fishin an untapped fishing holes! nice brown by the way!!ReplyDelete
