I have not had a ton of time to fish lately but I did get to stop by the Norfork on my way back from a work thing on Wednesday. In case you don't remember or are in a different area- last Wednesday was beautiful. Turned out to be a fantastic couple of hours.
It took me about half an hour to figure out what the fish were snacking on. I started out with a pair of midges and landed a few fish. Switched to an egg pattern and started really picking some up. Nothing big- just fat, spunky rainbows- did see a few large fish, though I managed to spook all of them. At some point, I noticed a decent mayfly hatch coming off. When the wind died down, the fish would really get after it on top- so I switched to a dry fly and caught several. I absolutely love catching a trout on a dry.
This one (and most of the others) took the egg.
All in all I probably landed somewhere close to 20 fish. I even got a sunburn. Not bad for a late January (work) day in the Ozarks.
