Fishing Flies Worked This Round!

Went to Bethany Lakes this morning and brought the Fly Fishing Gear.  Had tried Wooley Buggers earlier in the week.  Had one strike but did not land any.  Several years ago they were going for Black Midges and Gold Ribbed Hares Ear Nymphs (GRHENs).  So, what was in the fly box this time... Black Midges and GRHENs.

Good thing... had several Trout take the Dry Fly but either missed the hookset or came off the hook while reeling it in.  Was finally able to get one to stay on the hook long enough to land it.  Then, decided to switch to the GRHEN.  Had several strikes and misses, then landed two before losing the fishing fly.  Called it a morning with plans to stop by at lunch time.

Returned at lunch time and was able to get two more to complete a limit.  Caught them using the GRHEN!  Fun stuff... posted a video clip.  No action shots and had trouble pronouncing Gold Ribbed Hares Ear Nymph; regardless, it was fun catching them on the fly!
