June 1st - 2nd Rod Benders
First day of June saw slightly overcast skies and warm temperatures. Water temperature was 59F at 5:45 am and good clarity.
I chose to nymph fish my client over the riffles, holes and pools of a Northern NY river, employing The Ausable Ugly in a size #8 to imitate the current dragon fly and sporadic Green Drake in the nymph stage.
At the end of a successfully guided trip, with 20+ fish landed and released, with most fish ranging 10" to 15" and a 20" and 21"wild brown to round out the trip, the client deemed the day as "MINT!!!
Fish viewed are 2 different fish, look over the coloration in detail, both have a #8 Ausable Ugly firm set in their jaw.
Chris C. from the Toronto area produced the 1st in my guiding career, back to back 21" and 20" wild browns!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
