The Milkweed Bug and the Red Ant
The third cast in a slow run produced this healthy rainbow using Alan’s orange bug.
There must be a clan of these damaged gill plate trout in the Sipsey, or I am landing the same trout every time I fish this place.
Super clear fast water pouring into small pockets held the trout below; the orange bug continued to work its magic.
Never overlook any fly in the box; high sticking the little orange bug worked in the small pockets. Who knows what pattern will be hot on my next outing here.
