Daphnia and Blobs

The throat samples were quite conclusive, daphnia! The trout were dining on daphnia and we had to change up our fly fishing to get hooked up! Murray and Colin joined me for the maiden voyage of my G3 this year. We also met up with Betty and Steve. We all started off with chironomids but after doing a few throat samples, it was obvious that we were going to have to switch to blobs. Blobs are essentially fritz (you can order from Canadian Llama Company) or cactus chenille wrapped on a wide gap hook and fished 7 to 11 feet down below an indicator. The action was not fast and furious but it was still decent! It was definitely a beautiful day on the water!

yellow and orange fritz usually get the attention of trout
