Van Campen 11/7/19

When most of major rivers are blown-out with all the rain the Van Campen was really nice and pretty clear. Took my 7.5 3WT and worked the potion north of Millbrook Village. Productive day and some great weather.

Yes - good numbers of fish, nothing of size but just fun to catch.
The fly is Tim's "Simple Midge Larva" and works great. I tie them in black, brown, gray, and cream. I use silver ex-small ribbing.

Great looking fish, I love how simple yet effective that fly is.

Fishing the midge solo or as a dropper?

Mostly rainbows.
That fly is great, I used it under a FBPT but all fish were caught with the midge.
