Fish the windy days and when the fish come in shallow, back up so you do not spook them.

Fish were caught on a variety of techniques and flies last week including Bloody Marys, Olive Martini's and Popcorn Beetles with shooting head set ups and Maholo Midges in wine and black with floating line/indicator set ups.
