Off to try and bring a brook trout to hand. This stream is the recipient of water from a stream known as the "stream by the red barn" I did a post on it several years ago. While I did not fish the red barn stream today I did fish the brook it flows into.
It was in this junction pool that I was able to fool a fish.
These guys were into wet flies.
The second stream was a classic tumble down freestone in the New England style. Lots of plunge pools, laurel and hemlocks. And in a few of these pools were a few willing brook trout.
Now you know there has to be a brookie in a place as such. As a matter of fact there were several. Only one that made it to hand. He was a very spunky fighter.
I only fished this stream to this point. There is a lot more to go.
