A Fine Spring Day
A bright spring day was on tap yesterday, so Jeanette and I spent some time in the woods enjoying the the variety of flowers that are blooming. It seems everywhere you look you'll see them, some so tiny you almost strain the eyes. We also walked a small stream, one that has wild trout in its upper reaches. But this section is reserved for another wild fellow. Armed with a 2wt and a few dries I had a blast wrestling with the inhabitants of this stream.
A few hundred yards upstream wild brook trout predominate.
But here these guys are king. They are ever so scrappy on the 2wt, and do not care much what you offer them. Everyone is beautiful, especially when the sun hits their wet bodies.
When we arrived home I had some dough and decided to make some stuffed bread. This along with a salad made for a great ending to a great spring day.
