Still Waters 8-15-2011

Almost across the board speckled duns are beginning to emerge and take over as the best reason for dry fly fishing.  Dry adult damselfly patterns are also great at bringing fish to the surface.  Without wind great fishing can be had the entire day. In fact, with such still waters as Springfield, Treasureton,  Harriman Fish Pond, Hawkins, prime locations on Chesterfield and Twenty-Four Mile weeding up, dry fly fishing is the most practical way to present.  Everywhere consider using as stout a leader (at least 3X) as practical because those big fish will head down into the weeds attempting to escape. The only way you will get them out is to have a leader that can withstand your efforts on one end and that big one’s efforts on the other.
