With the temperature in the low 50’s, I headed for Mossy Creek this afternoon. The water level was ok, and only a little off color; the skies were cloudy and a fog came off the snow-covered ground. Unfortunately, the only robust hatch was the fly fisher hatch! There was a scant midge hatch, the bugs substantially smaller than my size #22 flies; the hoped for olive hatch never happened. I saw no rising fish, and deferred fishing streamers, so it was a few hours of practice in preparation for spring, which surely must be just around the corner here in Virginia!
