The Stone Sessions vol. II: Expectations

Dry fly fishing Oregon's Deschutes River for it's stunning native trout. Having high or unrealistic expectations when trying to time the stonefly hatches is often a recipe for disappointment. It seems having modest or no expectations (except enjoying the pursuit), is a better way to approach. And when that rare moment arrives.... know the rest of the story.

When in prime condition and fat from gorging on salmonflies and golden stones I believe Deschutes trout are amongst the hardest fighting trout anywhere. Majority of trout shown were fooled by the fantastic Chubby Chernobyl from Idylwilde Flies. Kudos to the great folks at Fin and Fire in Redmond, Oregon for being fully stocked on chubbies during the hatch:

Volume III featuring the OBP prime time players will drop from the sky in July.

"No Expectations" from Beggar's Banquet

And yes, its true, I got spooled for the first time in 30 years on the water.
