Incredibly envious. 5 trout ponds fished over two weeks with Wabblers and streamers. Zero fish. Giving up.

With you in injury timeout and VT in Manitoba, I'm happy to look after the brookie crown. Please send in a crush proof container, I don't want it to be crinkled.

This trip was the culmination of 7 years of work in learning this pond. Also, since labor day I've fished 4 ponds. Got skunked in 2, had a decent time in 1 and then did excellent yesterday. FWIW, wouldn't have caught anything yesterday if I was trolling.

Outstanding!! Congratulations - those are beautiful fish.

What flies did you find effective in the bright sunshine, and how deep did you have to fish?

Try being gluten intolerant. I'd kill for a Genny or Busch Lite. Instead I drink the occasional Redbridge and Angry Orchard Cider. $$$$

Some of the smaller fish were at the surface rising for those midges with the white headed pupae as they were emerging. However, I was fishing at 5-10 feet deep in 10-15 FOW. All the fish were taken on a size 4 5xl fly I devised to imitate the local fauna except the last fish which was the biggest. I had three of these 'imitations' and they all got destroyed so I had to fall back on my old favorite (I think I told you guys last fall) a size 8 wet fly for the last fish. Maybe if some of the motley crew on the forum can get together this fall I can share more details in person

Well, well, well, aren't those some beauties! The fish though are not what has me envious. Its the fact that you got them on the fly rod. Have been trying on an off with mine and still have yet to peak the interest of a brookie. We'll see what the last week end of the season brings. Congrats on those fish, very nice fish, and finally having all those years of work pay off.

A very good light lager.

I went through the same thing. When I decided that I wanted to move away from the wabbler and worm, I often brought both setups into the woods. Fly fished, got frustrated, then switched. Then, as I progressed, I would wabble to find fish, then immediately switch and work on presentation and depth. What really got me going was simple confidence. I would go to a pond that was not too large or overwhelming and fish at ice out in ideal conditions to get my confidence up, then work from there. I am saying this mainly because I wouldn't bank on hammering them during the fall. They can be very finicky in the fall and often require some sort of hot insect event to get them on fire. Otherwise it may be a fish here and a fish there. I'm heading out to 2 ponds this weekend we'll see how it goes! good luck
