Waters starting to go down, some black caddis in the air and took a brown on an uncased caddis nymph.

The baitchuckers standing around came up with bumpkis.

I used to do the lunch hour fishing thing there too, but that was back in the late 70s and early 80s. I worked in the industrial park right across from the airport and would hit the stream 4 days a week. Used to change shoes for the fishing. It was fun.

I'm more of an after work guy at the Monocacy instead of on the lunch hour. It does seem a little incongruous taking off the tie and white shirt and putting on waders over dress pants but what the heck.... it saves me the 30 minute round trip home and gives me that much extra time before dark on an enjoyable stream.

Water is clear, cool, and falling. No mayfly activity, but some black caddis.

Took browns to hand, and one threw the hook, from some pocket water on #16 Lafontaine Sparkle Caddis.

Glad to hear that the sparkle pupa got some attention. I'm curious what color bubble you're using.

I haven't been out lately so no new news from me.

I too fish on my lunch break which has increased my laundry expenses. I get in and out of my waders quickly so I pretty much suit up. Not too much of an issue now that I'm a landlord and don't have as much time to be the fishaholic that I used to be.

I don't use flyshop antron, but "plastic canvas yarn" from Walmart. It sure looks like Antron, and works as well when you comb it out.

The bubble is tan, the body is composed of brown dubbed to the thread, and a white trailing shuck.

Four browns from 2:30 to 3:30 on a rust-brown size 14 hare's ear and a 16 green brassie.

Water looked great, but didn't take the temp. Few caddis in the air as I was leaving.

Wonder if I can get back for a bit after work...

Last three days were mostly busts. The water has been higher than usual, and there's been little insect life in the afternoon.

My ususal spot has been completely devoid of the little browns (I figure they're either native or holdovers), but I did take a stocked rainbow earlier today on a rust-brown hare's ear.

No one else has taken anything while I've been there.
