Elford and Charles were in Virginia visiting from South Carolina.  As a guide and angler you never want tough fishing especially for your clients.  Yesterday was strange, the bass would feed for a bit then quit and it was like this all day.  We missed some really nice bass on poppers through out the day and landed some smaller ones along the way.  It was one of those days where you try a lot of different flies and techniques  but nothing works any better than what you were doing before.  We worked our butts off and put in 10 hours on the river.  I even went past the take out twice to get in more chances of landing a few more bass.  Thankfully the last hole produced five fish on the fly for Elford and four of them were 17 inches.  So a hard day turned around at the end for us.DSC_1647
