Brook Trout? Bluegills, Boulders, and Blueberries
The last few day here have been pretty nasty, weather wise. A few showers and just awful humid air. With so many warm nights it's best to leave the little waters be til a cooler time.
The pond in the photo is a place I've fished before. it's located in northern Connecticut. The state puts in a small stocking of trout once a year, and it has a variety of small bass, pickerel, and pan fish. Many years ago while pursuing 'patridge" along the back of the pond I noticed a small brook leading in. And low and behold a few brookies. Well that's for another post.
This is about bluegills. Several of you have posted your seeking them, and so do I. A 7ft 3wt is the tool and while most use other types of flies I use a streamer. A colorful one, for who knows there may be a brookie close.
A powerful quarry on the right gear.
This boulder was probably placed right here by a glacier 10,000 years ago. It has seen storms galore and kept its balance. When I saw it I was glad no one sneezed.
What's better...blueberry pancakes, and pure maple syrup.
