From the Fly Fishing Evolution Blog – The West Branch Before the Rise in H2O

Tom had never been to the West Branch of the Delaware and there was no better day to take him there then when the winds were blowing 20-40 miles per hour and the air temp was 20 degrees! When we pulled into Hancock, New York I didn’t want to get out of the car to be honest :) I figured let’s just throw him into the fire :) He did well landing a nice wild brown trout on his first cast! We caught quite a few fish with a few going over the 20 inch mark. Egg patterns took a few fish and the rest took size 20 midge larvae fished under indicators. We saw quite a few dead fish that look stressed from spawning. It was great now Tom can say, “the West Branch is easy ;)!
