For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form
Saturday, May 3, 2014
Every year about this time I am reminded of a article by Datus Proper printed in Fish and Fly magazine called "Real Fishing". The article go's on to tell of the fishing for wild brook trout in the Shenandoah National Park in the Spring. Mr. Proper also said, in regard to the wild brook trout, calling them "authentic trout"...natives, no additives or preservatives.
This post of mine also adds to his thoughts and compliments of such angling for this true eastern native. Last Sunday I spent a few hours of real fishing along a lovely waterway here in Connecticut.
The "Trillium". This is the first sighting of this Spring beauty. Seeing this in bloom means "dry fly season" is officially here.
A small stream flows. This is where most brook trout live now in the east. The larger waters have been given to the brown and rainbow. But that's OK the brookie is doing just fine here and so am I.
The wild eastern brook trout. I will add my own name to this jewel.....I shall call him the "unpretentious trout" for that is what he and all that surrounds him is.
