"May" you enjoy....



May so far has been wonderful. We have had a fair amount of rain, cool nights and warm days. This has led to some fine fishing and equally fine woodland viewing. All along the streams the plants and trees are so green and full providing cover and shade.

We fished one little stream Saturday. We arrived about the time breakfast was starting, although no one was in the chow line. I fished a wet fly and had a strike or two, even managed a couple to hand. Kirk's efforts were similar. As we continued to fish upstream it was apparent the fish were going to be a bit tricky today needing coaxing from undercuts and other difficult places. I changed to a Bomber and fished it into those special places. This effort brought several jewels to hand.

Oh those little hiding places.


This one particular run, I fished it for a bit. I cast the fly and let it drift several times without a look. After moving out, Kirk moved into position to fish it. His first cast brought a quick response and a brookie came to hand.


I managed to fool this guy with a Bomber. He came from a tricky place like you see in the photo below. After looking at this brook trout I noticed how much they look like the greenery that surrounds their watery home.




"Ice Cream anyone"

  2. Ice Cream at 0815 in the morning? Sure, why the hell not. I'm off to the freezer.

  3. Hi Alan....good stuff. This month's New England Game & Fish magazine has a nice article about CT's trout fishing.

    Also, every time you post a picture of food Mark makes a beeline to the kitchen. :)
