Uncle Billy's has experienced some very hot weather during January 2003. Local Fly Fishing identity, Craig Rogers, did some guiding earlier in the month and he recommends the "Black Bead-Head Nymph" for the current conditions.

As outlined in an article in Issue #30 of "FlyLife" magazine, "Stillwater Nymphing", nymphing can be the most successful form of fly fishing when conditions are less than ideal. Using a bead-head nymph will get the fly down near the bottom of the dam where fish may be feeding, away from the warmer surface-layers.
