A familiar stream in a new location
I managed to get a few hours on a stream today. I have been a bit under the weather and a few other problems also. But this morning I felt good and the stream awaits. These last few day have been quite blustery, and temps have been pretty cool. The stream was in wonderful condition except for the huge amount of leaves being blown into the water. I have fished this stream many times but in a different area. Today I decided to fish it further downstream. This section is a series of runs, riffles and long pools. The waters are home to wild brown and brook trout. The flies selected for today were wet flies of various patterns.
It did not take long for the first trout to hit, and they pretty much kept right on taking for the time I was there.
There is still some beautiful foliage left to be viewed.
I saw this brookie take the fly. It came from a leaf covered bottom to grab the fly just under the surface.
A brown taken from some slack water. Typical brown holding water.
I took a lot of photos today, Autumns last paintings.
