Autumn On The EB

Autumn On The EB
Fly Fishing The Millers - With over 30 years of fly fishing this river I will claim more knowledge and fish caught than anyone. There are over 40 miles of river and I will take you to the best sections and if you want to sections that never see another angler. Don't be fooled by those who say the Millers is a Spring and Fall river. I'll show you how to have great Summer action. The "EB of the Westfield" - Wild and beautiful is the only way to describe this river. There's a lot of water here but I know where to go to catch trout. After a trip you will too!! Solitude and trout IS the EB. The Swift - 20 trout days are not uncommon on this river if you know what to do and use. I'll show the way and you catch the trout. RATES - Full Day (6 hours) = $150.00 for one, $225 for two (lunch included). Half Day (three hours) $90.00 for one, $155.00 for two. Beginners Class - 3 hours ffor $90.00, all use of rods lines, reels included.

Best Fly For The Millers River

The water levels are down so we can put away the dreaded WB's and really start fly fishing. This is the fly to use, in various sizes, for much of the season.
Olive Emerger -
size 12 - 16 hook (dry or wet style hook)
Body - olive/brown (Evening Sun Fly Shop sells this as Australian Possum - there's some "flash" to it).
Hackle - dark brown partridge. The hackle in the photo is darker than seen here. You can use a lighter shade if you like.
How to fish it - swing this wet fly through the current (no indicators please) and let it rise up at the end of the drift. The browns have been killing it!!!!!!
See you out there!
