It did not take long for the action to start. My first hookup took place in the pool with the tree. The fly floated and the trout rose.
Not a surprise that the stream had brookies in it, but the surprise was when I brought the the fish to hand. A beautifully colored young male.
All brook trout are wonderful to take on the fly. Notice the dark body of this fish. You can have your stocked fish, make mine wild.
I fished to the area just above this pool. I called it a day, the heat winning the match. Three bottles of water, and a forth cold one at the car, many brookies pricked and a few to hand, and another stream to further check just as soon as it's cooler.
