H: The following morning Josee, Marcy, and I once again headed out to the Farmington. What a contrast from the previous day. It was Mothers Day so the river was near deserted. Things were very slow--no surface activity. I caught a small brown nymphing. Perhaps the trout had gorged themselves on an undisturbed smorgasbord of spinners the night before. We said goodbye to Marcy and waited for the afternoon duns. Unfortunately, the afternoon hatch was another disappointment. Like bad sex: the rises were minimal, at best, the fish were disappointing small, and it was all over in under 15 minutes. Hopefully we'll have better luck on the Delaware in 2 weeks.
