Finally, time to float the Big Water at Mio. With a friend and newbie to fishing for browns and rainbows with a fly rod, we cast off in the “poor man’s float boat” and drifted to Comins. Great weather, few hatches (mostly midges) and only a couple of rises. Chris had a few fish follow a leech, but no takers other than a creek chub that took a BWO emerger I put on out of desperation.
Seven hours on the river, good company, a cooler full of nourishment and the best seat in the house to watch the parade. Come on September.
