Yesterday was a day to spend around the house. Pick up a few things at the store coffee being one of them. Stop buy the pharmacy and pick up a prescription and then go home and just do not much of anything.
Well the sitting home didn't last long. The idea was sent out to visit a few streams I had not fished in a long time. The outing was just to see how they looked after the nor'easter that wreaked havoc on us back in October.
Upon arriving at the stream I was surprised by how good a shape the stream was in. Its waters were flowing clear and crisp. There was minimal debris in and along the stream and despite a lack of rain for awhile it had good volume.
I did not take the fly rod so I could not give a report on the fishing. I will give you a report on that soon.
A beautiful freestone stream. This was not always the case with this stream.
While this stream is so close to home and I have barely fished it. This may change soon with the price of fuel.

Just a few words about the Grey's fly box. I picked this up Friday at Up Country fly shop. What a good buy. It cost 15.00 and is similar to a C+F at a cost of 40.00.
These are a few variations of a proven pattern. They shall be tested today.
