A Spring Afternoon

Yesterday afternoon was spent with a few gents who find small streams, wild brook trout and nature a plus in this hectic fast paced world. We all agree that wild brook trout and those special places where they call home some of the best medicine one can take.


This particular stream had its best face on. Sparkling clear cold waters, with a gravel bottom of many colors.


As can be seen here there's so much more to this small stream angling. Mark the photographer getting close, with Steve and Kirk looking on.

I fished only two flies this day and this was the most productive for me. Harry Murray's "Mr. Rapidan"

On this day I had the pleasure to bring a few wild jewels to hand.....I'm thankful.



A beautiful spring afternoon spent with some buddies who can appreciate the simple beauty in "Brook Trout Forest"

  2. Looks like a good time! Sorry I couldn't make it up. Headed out after work. I was fishing a Mr. Rapidan at one point as well on Sunday to some large wild browns. No takers for me. Glad we are getting some rain today. Enjoy the fine fishing.
