Good show biker!

That big guy is probably 14-15" easy!

Wonder if today's the rain will mess things up...

thanks Kev, they were really "on" last night. the hatch was the heaviest I've seen, had flies all the way up to my house, which is probably 3/4 of a mile away at least. didn't see any carp jumping out of the water though! at first I though the big guy was a carp, he was heavy! glad I had 3x tippet, didn't want to lose any like last time!

Fished upstream from the FFO area on Saturday evening-8/7/10 with Ernieball and had a blast for a couple of hours. The hatch was still on, although not quite as much of a blizzard as some of the photos I've seen. Maybe we should have gone further upstream for a thicker hatch? Picked all of mine up on a White Wulff #12, no need to change from that pattern.

We saw a decent number of Hex's coming off too, probably in the 6-8 hook size? Birds were digging the bug activity, they swooped across the stream from the treeline and picked off the bugs hatching. No doubt they went to bed with full bellies!

Good stuff man, this was my first attempt to hit the White Fly hatch. I will be back at it next year!

I fished further up on Sun. evening. Not much going on. Still a fair number of whiteflies but the fish weren't into them where I was at. The hatch woud be good if it were any other bug on any other creek, but as far as SRC whitelfies go, it was a light hatch.

There were a good number of hexes around though. Again, the fish didn't want those either but I did get a dink and a couple of light hits swinging a hex style nymph.

Nice to see that others are enjoying the smallies as well. My girlfriend and I have been doing well on the same stretch of water since the last week of July! The hatch has been strong since then. Actually the first week of august was the best so far. It was like a damn snow storm! We've been using size 8 white deer hair poppers/sliders. Oddly enough I haven't run into anyone else on the river anywhere all summer, and I'm out at least 3 times a week; crazy! Have fun everyone.

Yes fellas I am the Florida phantom of SRC! I do drive the white Subaru Outback. It's usually myself (Ryan) my girlfriend Sarah and my Stafford shire "Diesel Trucker" I relocated back to the area this past April after 8 years in FL. We don't know too many folks that chuck flies around here so if ya see us come say hello. We also frequent. By the way last night was awesome!!! We caught'em till we quite around 11pm. The moon was beautiful.

You honked your horn at me one night a few weeks back. I was parked by Rt. 19, black Ford Escape.

Nice job Guys!

Nothing like fishing a good hatch, with some of your friends. Always fun standing around after your done fishing, talking and having some beverages of your choice.

Nice pics

Speaking of SRC, I'll be over that way next Friday. Do you guys have any luck with streamers during the day this time of year? I went by the creek for the 1st time yesterday while scouting Hell Run. SRC is a nice looking piece of water. It was so late by the time I got over there I did not have much time to cast the creek any.

Thanks!

I hit lake aurthur for an hour and SRC for 2 hours yday morn/ afternoon. They were hitting in the shade. Got a nice bucket in the lake, but sun got bright quickly. More shade and fish on SRC. Mostly used poppers, but took one smallie on a big streamer. they're there, for sure. Good luck...let us know how you do.
