"Fathers Day" and Fishing the Day Before
Good morning, and "Happy Fathers Day". Having my cup or three of joe and trying to put this together.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of fishing together with Mark, "fishing small streams" and Kirk, "Trout Quest Redux". The stream selected is a beautiful little stream that winds through some of Connecticut's state land. It's a stream that flows through laurel and hardwoods, with those wonderful fish protectors "hemlocks". With all of the rain received the last few days the stream recovered nicely. The water was swift in places, that's how I like it, preferring those places to pools. The forest was very green and lush, with numerous laurel blooms about. I selected the Ausable Bomber to be the fly of the day, and a good choice it was. Many of the wild inhabitants of the stream slashed and whacked that fly.
In places as such, I could spend a good deal of time just sitting and watching, it's that beautiful.
Runs as such are perfect for the Bomber. The day was a very good one. Enjoying my time with Kirk, and Mark, along with a few wild jewels.
