That fish was not caught on a salmon fly but rather a large streamer by the buggerman himself.
Last couple days have been crazy around here. Salmon flies are out and so are the fisherman. So far there have been no accidents or major fights on the river that I know of but it’s not over yet. My shuttlers have been complaining about not getting enough shuttles but now they are crying uncle. Things will slow down next couple days.
For the most part fishing has been good with lots of fish caught on top.
I finally found out the real story about the psycho pheasant. A guy who lives down by Maidenrock raised him from a chick and in the house. This bird thinks he is human as he has never seen another pheasant but just people. He is so horny he chases about everything he sees. Hey I didn’t make this up but just relaying the story.
