Going fishing.

With the heavy rains of Tue and Wed the streams should be in awesome shape. Good flows will hopefully get trout that were hunkered down in places where their movement was restricted due to lack of stream volume, moving again. They will be seeking food, and a nice deep pool to call home for a while. Thanksgiving dinner has settled and today I will seek the brook trout.


This is a wet fly that will see some work today. It along with a streamer, and perhaps a caddis dry and a Bomber will also be used.


With some luck the TFO 6ft 2wt will get some needed exercise, and a wild brook trout will come to hand.

      Exactly what I thought when I tied it, but it sat home while I fished.

  5. I was a little bummed out about the rain. It took back all the ice up north on the ponds and closed some of the clam beds. Being I am taking delivery of a new jeep tomorrow I am not sure what to do now. Hope you had a nice thanksgiving.

      That's probably so, but it sure helped us guys who fish them little creeks.

    One can beat the 2 and 3 wt fly rods for the ultra play in trout fishing. I have a 7.6 ft 3 wt. and use it often on the tailrace. What size tippet are you using with your 2 wt. ? Thanks for sharing

      I can't argue with that. Bill I almost always use 6x tippet.

  7. That brookie is the kind of black Friday doorbuster that could get me out of bed following yesterday's feast. Well done.

  10. Six of my favorite words mentioned in one comment section. Small streams, wet flies, Jack Gartside. It doesn't get any better.

      I'll agree with you on that.
      Gartside was a master.
