Today I am watching a light snow fall the first week of March in Jasper
. That kind of weather is a little odd for this part
of the country this time of the year. The temps never got out of the 30’s all day and for me that is
stay inside weather. It gave me a chance to put together a collection of flies
for my son to use when he moves to Alabama next week. I will be making the trip with him to help
out with the driving. It is a 3 day trip from Jasper to Marysville California , where he will be working as a travel RN for the next
3 months. After that assignment he will move to California to do another 3 month stint. I am hoping he will find
Dad some good streams to fish when my wife and I make the trip out there this
summer. He will work a four day week so he said he will have time to explore. One
of the flies I put in his fly box was the Auseable Bomber by Mark at Fishing Small Streams. Oregon
A great dry dropper setup--I will have to give it a try as a stand alone dry also
Another pattern that I will put in his fly box is the Bomber pattern that Alan of Small Streams Reflections fishes. I consider Alan and Mark experts when it comes to fishing dry flies--so any dry they are fishing I am on!!!
I have actually fished Alan's Bomber this past season and landed a number of rainbows using it without a dropper fly. In fact my profile image is one of the best rainbows I landed last year using Alan’s Bomber.
Alan's Bomber worked magic with this bow.
I couldn’t end today’s post without sharing a clip using the dry/dropper setup. This will be one of the first setups I use this season
I plan on taking lots of photos on the way out, and hope to share some with you guys when I get back next weekend-----
