Beauties! But are you sure it's open? And are you sure that's not a sturgeon?

Patterns?

Maybe the joys of bad hook geometry? Barbless flies don’t cause me no problems that I can tell.

You’re probably right. I also will blam at least 2 of the fish lost (if not more) on my stupidity 😂

Heck, sometimes it is just how the cookie crumbles. Maybe the fish weren’t committing to the bug. Hard saying.

If it’s not a secret, what flies did you use?

I was using mostly a copper John but also got some bites on a hares ear

They were both jig nymphs of course.

Standard copper? I used a lot of red and black too. Chartreuse and blue sometimes. I always loved John Barr’s bugs. He’s one of my favorite designers. Barr Emergers and Graphic Caddis always had several rows in my boxes, and I mostly fished my own patterns. They are just too good not to fish.

I agree with you here, they were green copper johns.
