"There's a story that the cylindrical deer-hair Bomber fly was invented on the Miramichi River in New Brunswick when a wealthy sport tossed a cigar butt into the river and a salmon ate it. You assume it was an imported La Gloria Cubana instead of a rum-spaked crook bought at a gas station" - John Gierach
The Millers is loaded with browns. The comment section mentions it and my last two solo trips took these fish. There are no drag burners here, just a good head of 10 to 14 inch fish that hit on the surface and down deep. A recent stocking?? No way. These guys made it through the Summer and are found at Orcutt, the Upper Trestle, Kempfield and in Erving Center and some have caught them in between. My fish were taken at mid day which was cool but not unexpected because the air temperatures have been in the low 70's, it was cloudy and the sun is at the same strength as it is in late March. Comparaduns in tan around size 16 and any soft hackle will do.
Don't wait until the stocking stocks to arrive and then crowd into the usual places. Fish now especially on a cloudy day.
The Swift flow went hog wild on Monday and the expected rain didn't arrive. If you like high water this will be your place for a week or more!!
New Stuff - 8 years ago I was selling my flies on this site and got totally buried in business. My full time, 50+ hour job took all the time so I had to let it go. I'm going to be back with this (flies you can't find anywhere else) and some new, unique products. More to come!!!!!
