One of the best "Fly-Presenters" in the state of Washington, Tate Bare, checked-in from the Methow River on February 12th with this note:
"It is two 2:30 am, I will be leaving for the Methow in a half hour. Just finished the last of my simplified egg-sucking buggers. As usual, I will be hunting for pigs with a nymphing setup. If I'm lucky I will send photos this evening. I'll try to call you later."
Methow native 2/12/11
A surprise cutbow caught on a simplified woolly bugger that caught also caught the steelhead above. A well presented fly can be deadly on any species.
