Shell and I made it out for some trout tonight and ended the evening with some mating mayflies and unhookable Gar.

Shell caught a trout on a crawler.

I caught a few on streamers. The biggest 18-inches.

Shell found some Monarch Butterfly caterpillars on the Milkweed on the banks of the creek.

Although I had a lot of action with dry fly Gar, I landed none as their beaks are impenetrable with your standard dry fly hooks.

The mayflies put on a good show as it got dark.
