Yesterday I had a doctors appointment at 10, and being a good visit which made me feel good. After leaving I said reward yourself and go fishing. It was a later start than normal but what the heck it's fishing. I got to the stream after 11 and geared up. Beautiful day, with all the greenery bursting forth as well as pristine waters I knew this was a gem of a day no matter if I caught fish or not.
Fly choice was easy, "anything that floats", and that was it for the time I spent on the stream.
It did not take long before a willing combatant swiped the fly.
In water as clear as this it's a joy to be able to see the trout come up and strike the fly.
This fellow never left the water.
"The Trout Lilly"...these flowers were everywhere.
"Fontinalis" that means "living in springs" and this photo shows just that. A brilliant male who jumped several times. Connecticut"s only native char.
