May 26 on the Upper Provo

It was a cloudy and overcast day. We had some occasional light showers, which made me think that streamers would be good. I tried for about an hour using a woolly bugger and a muddler minnow. But, nothing. So, after tying on a black and brown baetis nymph, I finally got one. With the new fluorocarbon tippet I was using, I kept losing flies. Maybe I didn't have enough lubricant (saliva) on there when I cinched the knot? So, I called it quits and headed back home.

I can tell, though, that fluoro is much stronger and will last longer.

In this photo, I thought that this part of the river looked good.
