A while back you gave me a hand getting signed up on the Northern Lights Forum, thanks again for that. I was in Calgary last week on business and had a chance to fish the Bow River for four hours, the first time in about twenty years, and also the first time with a fly rod. I wasn't getting anything on the flies suggested by the fellow at Country Pleasures, with no success. I thought it was because I wasn't doing something right as far as mending or whatever. So I tied on a variation of the Redd October, no bead, and almost immediately proceeded to catch two nice rainbows. My first trout on the Bow with the fly rod, and they were with a fly I tied. Talk about a feeling of satisfaction.
Thanks for the pattern. This Friday, back to Star, to try to catch the "salmon" that broke off on me last Monday.
