STREAM CONDITIONS AND BLOG
Thank you to all who stopped by the Driftless Fly Fishing Company's booth at the River Falls Fly Fishing Festival and the Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo. It was great meeting and talking with so many folks about a shared passion of fly fishing. With that being said, even with being busy at the shows, I did find time to hit the streams a few times :-) Last Sunday, the "streamer bite" was still on and I had great luck on darker patterns of Woolly Buggers I had tied. The temperature yesterday hit 60 degrees and we experienced an amazing Blue Wing Olive hatch which made for a VERY fun afternoon of dry fly fishing. One would find that fact extremely hard to believe as it is snowing out now with a potential of 12 inches of the white snow forecasted.
Melvin Hayner is the owner of The Driftless Fly Fishing Company in Preston, Mn. He has been fishing this area for over 23 years and guiding here for over a decade. Some reports will be from other reliable sources around the Driftless area. Thanks guys.
