Another lovely evening; water not crowded, but companionable.Dennis (from Virginia) fished the riffles above Giza's pool and seemed to do well. We chatted as each caught fish. Below three men fished the still water starting at the downfall. When they crossed over they asked where I was fishing (up or down) and were exceptionally polite in that they expressed the wish not to crowd my fishing.
Best fish was a 15 inch brown that took a floating Hex in the upstream riffles and immediately went airborne in a high arc that cleared the water by about 1.5-2 feet. Fat, deep-belied fish. After that other fish were in the 8-10 inch range, but the action was steady.
As it darkened (Sunset @ 7:45 pm), switched from the Hex to the Wulff I'd been using the last couple of times out. It still floated but the bend had begun to straighten out so I tied on a slightly larger #14 Wulff plus a whitefly emerger. I'd previously soaked the Wulff in silicone mucilin and the result was a fly that floated like a cork. Only problem is the smell, which even after a week remained, albeit faint. Probably should let them air our even longer. However, the fish didn't seem to mind. As it darkened, caught and missed fish. When I could no longer see the fly, struck to the sound and managed to hook a few, but my strikes weren't always solid and often a touch late. Struck one good, heavy fish but it was gone in a flash. Crossed back over the stream with Dennis and walked to his car parked in the Meadows. Then continued up the hill to the parking lot.
