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

This is a stream I fish quite often, but not in this area. I call this section "outback". Access to the stream is somewhat of an adventure. It is quite overgrown with just about any nasty thing that grows. It is a master at snatching flies from you, and can put holes in your waders, and skin. Its waters tend to run smooth, glassy and very clear. I have fished this "outback" through out the year, but it's best fished now through early April. The main reason is that the foliage is easier to deal with.
While fishing some very interesting items can be seen. I can only guess how many stories were told here while drinking coffee or.
Within these long pools are some beautiful wild browns. The browns dominate this section of stream but many a brookie has come to hand also.
One of "outbacks" wild browns. When I fish this section I generally fish wets and streamers, but there are those times when a dry is called on.
I love this spot. Not only does it fish well, it's also a beautiful place to sit and observe.
Sit and have lunch also.
And occasionally I'll tangle with one of these. Tiger trout also inhabit this "outback" section. I have taken them on streamers, but they hit wets too. When these tigers hit it's like nothing else, and they fight like crazy.
Mark over at "Fishing small streams" can attest to these tigers, he has taken one back here also.
Well it's January, and perhaps a slight warm up just might put me in "outback creek"
