Hot Day On The Freeman

Recommended Posts

Well Gary(Garhan) and I decide to do a little Grayling fishing. We headed out to my favourite Grayling stream. We had a great time shooting the bull and we actually did get into fish. When I say hot its not in fish but weather. I would love to say we had to beat the fish off with a stick but no such luck. Gray had a pretty good day Mine was slow but I stuck to dry flies longer then normal(some reason I had VD(Vince Dease). Gary started out nymphing and that was where you had to be. It was a really hot day and the heat just sapped the energy right out of you.

We had a great day just being out and rolling stone and chasing Stone's. We caught a few for Gary's sample bottles.

Have to thank Gary for coming out and also keeping me on the straight and narrow as there were no major misshaps. So Gary you must be a calming influence. Thank bunches for a great day and new tip's to try. Also the woolly worm techneque. I'm going to have fun with that one.

We will do this again.

 

PS

 

Freeman getting a bit out of shape was higher than a couple of weeks ago and was much dirtyer. Must have gotten more rain in the last week than eleswhere.

Thanks Dennis I truly enjoyed the day. It was a great time and the fishing considering we really only fished 4 hours and between us caught +-30 is not a bad day. I am happy that you liked that technique I should you with the Wooly Worm. It has been refined over the years, but it sure does give them a lick-en. I have used it through out Alberta, BC, and the Territories. Almost always works.

 

I will add some pictures later from this trip. Got a couple good ones of you casting in that first pool.

I think this is know as a Solitary Sandpiper - tringa solitaria.

The Wild Tiger Lily has numerous other common names including the not so prestigous, 'Ditch Lily'. It is from the family Liliaceae. It has a strong, sweet smell. It has a beautiful fire orange flower. Most of the plant is edible.

Glad to hear that you and Gary had a good day of fishing...sometimes you just have to go deep eh. While I'm glad you had a good day of fishing and chatting I'm really, really pleased that there were no major auto problems....Gary must, in fact, be a very calming for you.

Vince it was a good time. River was up big time. I just went in and checked the flow rate and it jumped huge on Fri. the flow almost tripled. They must have gotten lots of rain higher up. We had fun chasing Stoneflys.

How did you and Rick make out.

Great picture Gary Love the fern, Lily and the Sandpiper to bad couldn't get a picture of the chicks(Sandpipers that is). Did you ever determine what the stonefly was.

It was a very good time and enjoyed very much. We will have to do it again later in the year.

I see the water is higher than when Ross and I were there two weekends ago, but obviously much lower than when the real high spring water rearranged the "tree pool" into a "treeless pool" and comletely changed the deep corner pool two bends down. There were several sandpipers around when we were there but no signs of chicks. The liy you photogrtaphed is commonly called the Tiger Lily and related to Saskatchewan's Red Lily. I know it as the Western Wood Lily. It grows in ditches and open areas of parkland forest. The flowers are usually seen in late June to mid July. It is a perrenial plant. It does not transplant well from the wild and cutting or picking the flower can set the plant back badly. Great photos though. What camera were you using?

I think the sanddipper related to the kildeer family? I may be wrong but i see such great simularities between the two bird families.

Yes they are Kristi, Plovers,Silts, Avocets, Willets, Curlews, Wimbrels, Godwits, Turnstones, Knots and Sanderlings are all similar looking shoreline birds and dont forget the Woodcocks and Snipes.
