We have a combined report for November and December this month. The fly featured is the "Hamills Killer".

Good rain fell during November and December, with 241 mm recorded. Lots of food washed into the lakes, creating perfect conditions for the trout. There wasn't a lot of surface activity during November. Hammil's Killers and Olive Green Woolly Buggers had the most success.

December has brought warmer weather and stormy conditions. There have been lots of hatches. Anglers have experienced excellent fishing with many different fly patterns working. The tiny black Midge, White Moth, Emergers, Beetles, Hammil's Killers and Woolly Buggers have all been successful.

The Hamills Killer was also featured during 2003 and 2004. Over the years this pattern has proven to be very successful. If you're looking for a "must have" fly for Uncle Billy's, the Hamills Killer would be very near the top of the list.
