For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form

Friday, August 3
Friday morning found me along side a favorite haunt. The forecast for the day was hot and becoming humid. I knew that today was probably going to be the best day out of the next few to fish this stream. As I approached the stream to place a thermometer in a brookie who was near scattered for cover. Placing the thermometer in the water gave me a temp of 64 degrees. I could fish for awhile this day.
I rigged the 2wt with a Bomber and went to work. Soon there was a rise, and a splash and a hookup, and a SDR. Oh the joys of small stream fishing.
There is water under this tangled mess, good water with a nice flow. With places like these the wild fish who live in this stream will always have sanctuary.
Golden blossoms along the water bowing to the royalty called brook trout.
True wild beauty.
A quick snack in a wonderful setting...refresh the body, and refresh the mind.
A slow floating size 16 CDC caddis nears the debris....and
The flies mission complete. It's well done work allow this jewel to come to hand.
I finished my few hours on this stream knowing I could leave it for a few days, or weeks if necessary.
