Dry fly fishing what is left is best done from down stream from the fish, presenting the fly as a dead drift. Nymph fishing below indicators with 9?-4X leaders (Orvis Superstrong # KM0714-61) a BB split shot seems to be the right weight. Orvis' Heliios Rod with it's strong backbone, is really handling these bigger fish very well. I prefer the Helios 6 weight. (ZG Helios 906-4 Tip 9.5)
Temps in the 40's and 50's with considerable wind. Looks to be a good week to get out on the water. Dress warm, stay dry and remember the fish still have to eat!
