What The Mystery Fly Can Do For You

Today was a mixed bag of eventful and uneventful experiences.  Here is a synopsis.

Early on - couldn't buy a fish. 

Conditions - the wind was insane. 

Company - fantastic, Roger Allred is one of the most interesting men you'll ever hope to meet. 

After no fish for Roger or yours truly from the sandbar we traveled upstream above the crossing.  I switched to a red midge larva and took the first fish of the day. 

Other patterns that would catch trout would be the Frenchie.

Decided to test drive the mystery fly and here is what the mystery fly can do for you.

Most memorable moment - My dumb butt didn't have a net so Roger volunteered to net this fish.  Roger took the full pledged baptism in the Blue River.  Not just once did he go under, but three times and he came up smiling saying, "We're netting this fish". 
What an awesome guy. 
There are some C&R quality type fish in all of the other parts of the river. 
Believe in the mystery fly all you Blue River Fly Classic contestants.
