Editor’s note: Aimee Savard of Tight Loops sent me these cool photos, along with a note:
These images were shot this month, over several trips we took to rivers around New England—the Deerfield, East Branch of the Westfield, and the Farmington—while filming for our latest video. Though our main goal was to target large fish on streamers, the weather and river conditions had different plans. We were able to pick up a few here and there, but the bigger browns proved hard to find, and even harder to move. Luckily, some late-season hatches (most notable a hatch of blue-winged olive in the size20 to 22 range) brought lots of fish to the surface, and we were able salvage our missions with some awesome action on dries. We couldn’t be happier with the way the footage came out and we can’t wait to share it with everybody!
