Tim Flagler and friends gear up for and catch some large rainbows using Pine Squirrel Streamers and Olive Woolly Buggers–just the meal the big rainbows were waiting for.
Great fishing video Tim. I enjoy you fly tying immensely also. First thing I noticed in the video: No bugs in the lights.
Actually there were quite a few bugs that night, mostly Light Cahills. We caught some smaller fish size 14 Light Cahill parachutes (carrying two rods, one rigged with a dry and the other with a streamer is the way to go).
Great video. Keep up the good work!!
Cool video Tim. I really enjoyed that. Around here, we do a fair amount of fishing for steelhead at night, but I’d never seen resident stream-dwelling rainbows pursued at night. Brown trout, especially large ones, are notoriously nocturnal. What about other species of salmonids? Do brook trout feed often at night?
I may have to target something other than browns in the dark, after seeing the size of the rainbows you were catching. Wow.
