Willow River 06/05/09
DeLorme map, page 70. That's my brother Andy landing a rainbow on a size 10 tan elk hair caddis. He also caught a couple of browns on pink squirrels. We were there about 5:30 p.m. There was moderate caddis activity that night. As usual, there were tons of large and active crawdads skittering about our feet.
I made a big mistake of tying my flies too small for the trip. I tied up most of my selections in size 16. On the Willow, the Kinnickinnic, and the Rush, size 12 was the way to go. Lesson learned.
