I took the light rod out today to walk the stream. Unfortunately we had wind gusts to 65 mph. It wasn't too bad along the water with a little shelter from the banks and I was able to drop my casts in close to where I was aiming most of the time. The fish were fairly active and swirling strikes or refusals occurred at almost every good pocket, hole, or undercut bank. The leech was working well enough that I didn't switch flies but I thought about going to a hopper with the high winds. I may have to try a hopper on another day very soon.
