For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form
Tuesday, April 3, 2012
There are those times when fly fishing takes on a little more meaning. Those outings when you might be prospecting a new stream, or revisiting a section of a familiar stream. It may be one of those days that seem perfect for catching many trout and it turns out to be a bust.
At these times you may stop and put the rod down and look around. There are those wonderful things that prove to make a so so day into a memorable one.
This little white mushroom looked at first glance to be a scallop shell.
And these colorful ones. Life surviving of of the dead.
I stood for a spell at this small woody debris dam. I imagined how the water flowing heavy and deep produced a highway for the trout moving upstream. Its waters causing a deeper seam both for protection as well as a resting and feeding lie.
And how a "Bomber" still manages to bring a wild trout to hand.
So even if the catching is not so great, the "Side Shows" are worth the price of admission.
