Upper Sac, July 2nd

Ben with an Upper Sac Gem Ben and Eric

Ben just moved to the area from Chicago and has been itching to explore the fishing possibilities.  His buddy Eric helped him make the move so Ben treated him to a guided introduction to the Upper Sac.  Ben has fished a bit, though not nearly as much as he would like and Eric is new to the sport.  We started late to take advantage of the evening hatch and fished through the afternoon.  The afternoon was a bit slower than it has been but Eric landed a very nice fish in some fast water on a dry!  After lunch things picked up and we got grabs in most every run, with a mixture of hook ups on the dry and dropper.  We finished the evening with a magical dry fly session, hooking several very large fish all of which were a bit camera shy.  Eric is already planning  his return visit with Ben to sample some of the area’s other legendary rivers.
