In The Ferns

After some decent rains I hit a small stream to do some angling. The sun was shining ever so bright, but the thick canopy and the green ferns, some of which were three feet high made for a less stealthy approach and some wonderful fishing. And by the way a slight breeze held the little flying, buzzing creatures in check.

The brookies were very hungry and wasted no time in taking my flies. They were taken in both riffles and the tails and heads of pools.

  2. I wish I had the wealth of small streams you do in CT than here on the island. You are certainly blessed with them.

  7. A cool and inviting place to fish. It helps that the Broookies were cooperative too.

    One can't help but land trout in areas like that---I really like the wild ferns along streams and creeks. Thanks for sharing great post!

      Thanks.
      Lately I have been late to set the hook. Quite a few missed hookups.
      A lot of fun just trying though.

  9. Love the jungle feel - until the wood nettles take over. Love the photo of the brookie in the shimmering reflection of the water. The wormy lines on their backs are perfect camoflage against the stream bottom. Great photos!

    1. A Simple Man,
      The photos are not enhanced. They are taken with two cameras and they vary color in shade and sun.

    It's pretty much the same here Mike. But Mike I think it's better than drought.
