Happy Thanksgiving

Reasons to be giving thanks for me are many and I will not list them for this is a blog post and not a book. This day before Thanksgiving was spent walking along a little brook. I was armed with a dry fly, a dry fly I fished the entire outing. The quarry was wild brook trout those precious jewels of New England. They were very much in a pleasing mood for they harassed the caddis to no end.



Ice was forming and sparkled like diamonds
I wish to take this opportunity to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving.

  4. Alan, we all are thankful for your posts. I can't get out to fish as much as I would like, so your posts help take me to the stream. This one here did as well. Glad they were hitting dries for you despite the cool temps. Must be that sunshine! Have a great Thanksgiving.

  12. Happy Thanksgiving to you all, and especially to Alan for this site which I have been visiting off and on for quite some time now. I thoroughly enjoy the calmness it brings when I am working in the city away from my Welsh valley home.
