I hope you're paying attention. If you are planning to fish the North Platte this spring, right now is the time.Don't make it more complicated than it is. See these flies above? Use them. The pink San Juan and the Otter Eggs as your dropper. (Otter eggs might be illegal this time next year. They are that good.) There's a fair mayfly hatch in the afternoons, but why be esoteric about the whole situation. I'm not trying to analyze you, but why not take the win when it's right in front of you? Get off your ass and fish. Orvis says it's okay. Eschew golf and whatever else you were planning this weekend. You are just a month away from graduation parties of all sorts, and you hate these. There's not enough light beer in the world to cover your annoyance at graduation ceremonies. You have thousands of dollars of fly rods in your possession. Use them, or sell them to someone who will. Between fish, Rocket harassed me with a length of wood he found. I caught lots of 12 to 15 inch trout behind the redds. They sit there and pick off eggs as they tumble downstream.
