Well, after many completely fruitless early season attempts, when the river should be on song, I finally get a good day on the upper usk last sunday. Pulled this guy from the first run on the 2nd cast on a #16 copper john.
He stuck around for a copule of shots.
Same very light hatch of LDO knocking about. Still not seen a march brown on the river this season. Certainly not seen a worthy rising fish yet.
Best fish was this close to 2lb nympher. I was snapped by a better fish within 5 seconds of hooking it on a small nymph.
