Hatch..
I know that this spring things were a little behind, but now the heat is on. Was planning on at least a couple more pond trips before the fall cool down but never found the time. Any one still on the northern ponds ?

I hit it this past Saturday night (13th) on a pond somewhere between Bingham and Jackman.

Went to camp above Eustis and mowed the lawn yesterday, then got to a pond known for its hex hatch right at dusk. No moose, no deer, no bugs (maybe 2 or 3 flew by), no rises, nothing. Dead as a tomb. I thought with the late year it might be popping, but wasn't last night, despite staying on the water until close to 9:30. Fly fishing is a really weird endeavor.

Last night I walked into a spot on the K and fished just downriver of a slow-water section that entered back into the main river. Every once in awhile, like once every 15 minutes, a Drake would float out of that slow water and head downriver. A lot of them (most) made it to the air. But the ones that didn't, went out with a noisy splash. In retrospect, I probably should have tried something that imitated them more closely, but the fish had been keying on lots of other (smaller) things consistently, so I stuck with what seemed more likely.
