    1. I was fishing the Cumberland Tailwaters 3 weeks ago and saw multiple Trout feeding on Blue Winged Olives, it was amazing to see them rising and moving toward the boat!

  1. Great photos–watching fish rising makes my heart race! I watched fish rising like this for about 45 minutes on a large river in Montana (it was after dusk so I did not fish)–it was totally mesmerizing.
