Its hot here in the valley. Really hot, like low 90’s + humidity hot. The kind of weather where the fish go into hiding. They are out deep in the fast water or they come up for big dries in the early morning or late evenings. I headed past the fife brook stretch to one of my secret spots on the Deerfield to get some rainbows. This time of year is one of the best times to catch big fish, right now in mid summer days. These trout are hitting everything this time of year. Especially big flies. Don’t throw any size 22 nymphs here. This not the time or the place for that shenanigans. Big flies = Big fish. Go get um!
