Fish with the MoonWith your fly fishing network guide Jon Book.
Small flies were starting to rise from the surface of the river. At first, there were just a few, but soon it was like a winter snow with the flakes rising instead of falling.
We could hear some good fish rising, but our match was just not working. My partner suggested we make a change to weighted nymphs and bring them up from the bottom with a thatching motion.
My first cast and retrieve brought results; a beautiful 13inch brook trout hit only on the upward swing of the fly. A simple change made all the difference!
We walked the well-lit trail through the woods with the moon on our backs.
