I invited Donald over to the Jersey side over the weekend and show him how the non-purist do things in the dark side.
Off the bet, the things were difficult for Donald as we couldn't match the hatch as no bugs are to be found.
I immediately switch to nymph set up with an evil dropper rig and started to catch trout and got Donald's attention.
I cautiously approached Donald and offered him my underwater flies along with a strike indicator and spent about 5 minutes explaining the roll cast.
It was weird seeing a nymph rig on a custom bamboo rod but Donald caught trouts with it, all three species the Big Flatbrook river has to offer.
Donald, you did good and welcome to the darkside !!! Mwah haha ha ha!!!
