Cape Cod brook trout..part 2
One of the sunsets we enjoyed, this one taking place at Cape Cod Bay in the town of Sandwich. Late afternoon and evening into the darkness anglers fished here, both from the beaches as well as boats. They patrolled the waters in search of that big striped bass.
I saw a few hookups, but there were more as darkness fell.
While most cast their flies to striped bass I was along this stream casting streamers to sea run brook trout.
From out of the shadows they would swiftly strike. The Mickey Finn was a good producer.
This brook trout has a slight blueish color to it.
Looking like an interstate highway a strip of gravel lies between to cress beds. Just under those cress beds lie the brook trout.
I truly enjoyed my time on Red Brook. A place that gifted this angler with some very special brook trout.
She sang it so well..."you'll fall in love with old Cape Cod"
