I just got an e-mail from my customer, Rich Peters.
If you go to my search tab and type in “Adirondack” you’ll find the older post with the photos of him & his wife from this summer.
The Cupsuptic wet fly he refers to was a size #6, and the Gray Ghost was dressed on a Mustad 8x long, #94720 size #2 streamer hook; it was almost four inches long.
Here is the message I got from Rich today:
Hi Don, Hope all is well, a quick report. Fishing was slow, still too hot, but as usual your flies managed to drum up a few brookies; caught one 15″ on the Cupsuptic, and another 18″ on the big Gray Ghost. Unfortunately due to weather and slow fishing we decided not to trek to the secret pond, but heading up again in a few weeks and will let you know how it goes. Thanks again for all the wonderful flies, RP.
Just a note to remind folks that these classic patterns still catch fish.
