    Is that water even moving? It looks like a pond.

    Definitely moving – slow, but moving. Very tricky drifts with all the weeds and a few man-made structures.

    Scotty…….The Frying Pan would be so much better if it wasn’t so crowded. Before thinking about going to the UK I thought i’d just move over to Basalt and fish the Pan every day, but I think the crowds would drive me nuts. Fly fishing is supposed to be fun. Not a war like on the Pan.

    Same goes for the Taylor. I can drive there in 30 min, but it’s even more crowded than the Pan. That’s what happens when you have a good chance of catching big fish. A 10-12lb fish is always possible on the Taylor.

    Grs…….That’s the problem with spring creeks and the chalk streams. It’s the weeds that make all the hatches. I know on the chalk streams they shut it down in the summer for a couple of weeks to cut the weeds. The weeds are no big deal with dries, but I don’t see how it can be nymphed. Not that they do much of that on the chalk streams. It’s only allowed on a few beats.

    I know i’d never use a nymph there. It would be dries 100% of the time. The browns rise pretty freely there and if they weren’t rising, so be it. I won’t turn to a nymph just to catch a fish. Might as well use a worm. LOL.. they’d hang anybody from the nearest tree if they caught them using a worm. :)
