I sympathize with you on this one Dana. After almost six days of fishing the Thompson, I finally landed one on Wednesday morning. I have been fishing the river since 1974 and exclusively with the fly since the late eighties. I have never managed any kind of consistencey. I understand that there are people who catch fish on every trip but I just hasn't hapened for me. I do alright on the other rivers I fish. The Thompson keeps drawing me back with the thought that if I learn to fish this river properly, I can fish any river in the world.
