    Coastrider I here you, patience! however I was at spider lake the other day, watching the chironomids coming off in waves so I anchored up and started "chironomiding" and got my first fish after 3 casts=) some nice fish in that lake.

    WOW 7lbs, I fish maple alot.... the fish in there are dark and quite small compared to what I have pulled out of spider, I was getting all mine in the middle on emerging caddis. I think its cool to watch the chironomids come off and all the fish hitting the surface=)

    Yeah, not much of any hatch in Nanaimo today. Saw a few mayflies and a lot of midges but only a dozen rise in over 6 hrs. After hearing from kids daycare teacher of this 7lb'er I might need to make the driveClick here to enlarge
