From the Vest of President ~ Andrew Butler


News flash! Winter caddis like ..... winter. With water temperatures dropping into the upper 30’s over the last week or so, the caddis have finally arrived in noticeable numbers. And the fish have responded, eagerly gobbling them off the surface. What fun! The caddis gradually give way to tiny grey midges in late morning, and the
fishing becomes very technical. What frustration! Gotta love the Farmington, she builds you up one minute just to bring you back down the next. I wouldn’t want it any other way!
Tight lines, Drew
