December To Remember

The Swift is a lifesaver!! My last trip to the Millers was on Hallowen. After that the rains came, then the ice and then the snow. Without this little tailwater I would be waiting until April to cast a fly. I made three trips to the Swift in December. Two trips were to the "pipe" and one to the "Y" Pool. The Y Pool trip was on the morning of Christmas Eve which turned out to be warm but very windy. I took to big rainbows in three hours. The two trips to the pipe accounted for 67 rainbows in about four hours of fishing. There are a gazillion small rainbows here and they were a blast on my 6ft, 3wt. bamboo. Hot flys were the Hot Spot and jailbirds in size 16.

It's been a good December which caps off a good year. Can't wait till 08!
