Afternoon delight

I slipped up to the river yesterday afternoon. Isonychias were emerging and trout were on them. I was fishing lower down than usual. I caught four and experienced quite a few refusals. Best was a 15 inch brown. The stretch I fished is easy water when the trout are active. I didn't travel very far from the bridge. Because of the move, I haven't been tying, and I was out of isonychia dun patterns, but I did find half a dozen #12 Adams, and they worked just fine.
