Reading the Current
 
After listening about the rain for the weekend and the wet Sunday in store for all campers, I planned a fishing trip. You know - the kind of rain that made all campers at Montauk ready to leave fast on Sunday morning.  I got my gear in the car Saturday night, noticing I still had not cleaned my line in a few trips. Oh well. Off I went at 6:00 am on a slow ride from my house to Montauk, with 2 stops at friends’ houses that always have coffee and good company. That got me to the 400 parking lot at 11:00. The traffic out was great and it was still raining. Skies were very grey, with 3 days of slow rain coming to an end. I got all wrapped up in my rain gear, rigged up with an olive leech, and headed for the cable.
 
Now things got better; you know all the reading the waters, look for seams, fish the bubble lines, and on and on. Well, the Current was off colored, running a little high and heavy overcast. I read every line, fished every seam and the fish were everywhere they say the fish should be. I fished down to Tan Vat, turned around and fished dry all the way up, as there was a caddis hatch. 5 hours later and a great day, if you like rain, produced a good read on the Current River. All the things we learn should be tested, at times, for the pleasure of that great read.
 
Ozark Fly Fishers has been and still is a great place to learn, study and refine the skills we all want, but nothing will beat the test. When you go boldly to test yourself, and your skills, there is no grade and never a graduation. I hope you all grow in skill and knowledge this year, but you really have to take the time to test yourself.

Rocking Chair

September Taney Outing

If you missed the September Taney outing, you missed a great one. Taney is always beautiful this time of year and fishes great; this year was one of the best. Steve Antonic won the #1 Big Fish with a 22 inch brown and John Furlong won the #2 Big Fish award for something less. 

If you were at Taney but did not stay to fish Sunday, you missed out on a picture perfect day. Blue skies and smooth as glass water.  See the picture of the “Rocking Chair”. Of course the fish were too busy enjoying the views to bother with a silly fly.
