Rain, wind, cold water, sun never came out, good time to fly fish!!!
With wind forecast to gust to 25 MPH I had to find a place to hide. I was in the Tomoka area, water temp was cold at 61 degrees, rained off and on all day, Sun never came out. I failed to get a bite from the small Poons I was around all morning but the Snook were chewing. I had the hook pull on a good Snook, possible slot fish, on a #2 Shrimp fly. Switched to 2/0 Bend backs, white/gray with dark green and blue flash, brown with dark green and gold flash. I ended the day with nineteen Snook from 17" to 22", and one small ****. They chewed up six flies. Water temp never got over 62 degrees, but the fish were spunky and strong, lots of fun on 8 pound tippet. Most all came from fallen trees.
