Yesterday I took a good client of mine, Mason McWilliams, streamer fishing. Mason is a great nymph fisherman and just wanted to learn some new techniques. We knew with the water as high as it was, we would have some challenges in front of us. It was cold and only got colder as the day went on. It didn't take Mason long to get the hang of the meat stick. We fished every pattern in the box. We got a few flashes, a few tugs, and that was about it for a while. Mason had never caught a brown over 16 inches, so that was our goal for the day. At about 10 am, he jacked the rod up and I saw a nice hen. Mason had hit his goal, she was 17 inches! We worked real hard for just a few fish, but we had a good time and Mason got to learn a new trick or two.
