Getting fooled by those elusive big Brown Trout? You’re not alone. Last week we watched a 24″ brown work the water about 15 feet from us in a small run. He was definitely interested in the caddis that were hatching yet for about an hour we couldn’t even get a look at our flies. I decided to put a small split shot on my customers line and use the same Elk Hair Dry fly that we were working with. We fished just upriver from our target and swung the fly towards Mr. Brown. He hit the fly on the second drift. Sink those dry flies and fish them like a nymph and you’ll find your luck changing!
