I have Thursday off and will be heading out to wet a line. I will most likely be fishing the middle provo, or the lower provo, but I am open to other ideas. If anyone would like to tag along, let me know.

Will do. Do you tie flies orvis1? If you do, I can give you a pattern that has been working really good on the LP, you can't buy it anywhere.
I discovered early in life that tying flies is just not a talent I have, but I do write great checks for bugs! Looking forward to seeing your pics...

Orvis1, if you already have the tools, etc., keep tying man! The fish don't care how "pretty" your flies are! A lot of my flies are train wrecks, but they seem to catch fish. Just keep practicing.

I hope to get out Saturday (I live in Orem). Haven't decided between stillwater moving water yet. So many waters, such great weather, so little time...

Well, I decided to go up the Cache Valley for the day and meet up with Chuckmeister. I needed a change of scenery.

Got up there around noon. We decided to hit up the Black Smith Fork R. I recently put together my first fly rod (Dan Craft Sig V, 9ft 4wt.) It's for my brother, but I had to test it out. :wink: I have to say, those rods are very, very nice. I will be building one for myself eventually, sooner than later. It was so smooth. I Highly recommend those rods, great rods for the price.

On the first hole, we saw a couple fish rise. Chuck insisted that I cast first. Well, first cast, first fish. It was a very skinny brown. Thought it was going to be nice day of catching fish. But the Black Smith R. had other plans.

Turns out that was the only fish I landed all day. Chuck hooked into a few, but they all got off as well. One of them wrapped itself around a branch and eventually broke off when Chuck tried to net it.

It was just one of those days the fish weren't interested in playing.

At around 3:30 we headed over to the Logan R. The results were the same. No one was really having any luck to speak of.

All in all, it was still a very enjoyable day of fishing.

Orvis1, I ended up going to the LP with the 9"4Wt Dan Craft that icthys made for me. There were not as many people as I thought there were going to be. Had a great time, even go into a 21 inch white fish. Love the Dan Craft rod. I was even throwing some streamers with it. Let's hook up possibly the sat after thanksgiving. Anyone else interested let me know. I have a new pattern (midge) that worked great with an egg.
