Swinging Twofer

I don't usually swing wet flies but I was doing some nymphing last night while waiting for the hatch and I was getting strikes on the swing. So, knowing that the trout wanted moving flies, I tied on a pair of soft hackles and worked the run. The flies got multiple strikes and I managed a few smallies and trout to hand. While bringing in one trout a six-inch smallie decided not to waste the dropper and did me the good service of hopping on. That made for an interesting fight.


  1. I'm still amazed that trout and bass swim the same waters!

    1. I'm amazed it took me so long to appreciate smallmouth. What a wonderful game fish to pursue all summer long.
