My biggest salmon out of the Fish river came on a White Miller; just a smidge under 6lb.

...after I dunked it and then turned around and fished it downstream on the swing.

for those of you who are White Miller fans, try the Lackawaxen River in north east Pennsylvania, at the end of August.... it is like a snowstorm !!

Dana,

Of course, you Easterners have milder snowstorms than we do. :)

I've been fishing upstream wets for more than ten years......and am really bad at it. I like to say that I might be pretty good at it in twenty or so years...if I live that long. :D

Did anyone listen to the most recent Wet Fly Swing podcast interviewing Davy Wotton?

https://wetflyswing.com/wet-flies-with-davy-wotton/

I thought it was a very informative podcast for those looking into fishing wets. Davy Wotton and this forum were my teachers in wet fly fishing. I'm curious as to whether the hordes buying ten foot or eleven foot 3 and 4 wt "euro-nymphing" rods ever stop to apply those rods to deliver a cast of 3 wet flies. That would boost the ranks of wet fly fishers.
I fish wet flies with faith and hope, faith that trout don't require exactitude and hope that when my time comes, God will explain why wet flies work...
