Spring is here

Hello all my fellow fishers out there, I had the great pleasure of fishing with Geza "The Big Cheese" Kmetty and crew earlier this month. This is Mr. Kmetty to the left holding a FAT 16" Lee's Ferry rainbow, one of many he caught that beautiful day. We had a great trip, nice spring weather and plenty of good action. My last report spoke a little about my midging rig, now I would like to touch on it a little more in detail as it was the key rig for this trip. The midging rig is designed for a suspended presentation instead of a, from bottom up presentation. Basically its a mixture of a dry-drop and full nymphing rig, I use a pulsa indicator where you would put the dry, and 4-6 feet below that a size 16 tungsten beaded zebra midge, then 18-24 inches below that a second midge, size 16 or 18 tungsten bead as well. The key to this rig is that you make sure you use tippet for the whole rig so there is no tapered leader below the indicator. Midge patterns of any type will work just as long as they are tungsten beads and in the correct sizes. Spring is beautiful at Lee's Ferry, the river banks are turning that beautiful emerald green as we speak, the weather is warming by the day, the midge hatches are getting bigger by the day, its time to shake that cabin fever and come join me on the pursuit for the wild Lee's Ferry rainbows. If I can be of service please feel free to contact me at anytime. Thanks again to Geza and crew. Mick Lovett For More Details, Visit Home at
