Fished the East Branch solo for 4 days and had a great trip. Caught fish on March Browns, sulfurs, marabou leeches and assorted streamers when they weren't rising. The conditions were good but had to dodge a few thunderstorms here and there. wound up with 18 fish for the few days I was there and quite a few were nice fish.

Always a pleasure fishing up there. I feel very lucky and thankful to be able to do it.

 

Nice meeting and speaking with Dick and Clayton as well.

Great pics Leif !!! Good to hear that the East Br. treated you well . I stopped at Long Flat on Friday , but anglers hatch sent us elsewhere. 

Was in Roscoe from Tuesday after Memorial Day to Sunday . We fished the Beaverkill for most of the time there. Great bug activity everyday , the dark blue sedge were unbelievable !!! Had my best hour ever fishing Green Drake duns on Saturday , the bugs came and the fish wanted the big bugs . was incredible 

to catch over a dozen nice fish in such a short period of time . No dinks either, best fish measured 18 in my bag , didn't get to photograph in my location  but

that brown had those bluish cheeks they develop at that size, like one you posted . Overall great trip and also so grateful to be able to go and experience a

remarkable drake hatch , I've waited a long time for that one !!! Hope others had the same experience .
