Cabin Creek, Northern Lights and.....
We took a walk along Cabin Creek the other day just to see how things were holding up. The stream was at a level that was acceptable for this time of year. A well shaded stream with temps in the mid sixties. We observed several spooked streaks, and even a rise. In one very gnarly tangled mess where a deep pool was created I observed a brown of generous proportions lying in ambush. A fine prospect this fall should he decide to move from his security blanket.
The "Northern Lights" aka The Brook Trout.
Some work horses. These are trolling streamers. They are large flies that represent smelt. They can be trolled using a fly rod and sinking line, or with lead core line.
