Mountains and forests and brook trout seem to go together. When they are looked at separately their beauty and grace are almost unbeatable. When they are combined there is nothing in the natural world that can compare. In her book "Brook Trout Forest" author Kathy Scott wrote..."someone once said that if you pour cold water on mountains you'll get brook trout. If you pour cold water through forests you'll get them too". When you think about that your conclusion has to be the same.
Such is the case for this little intimate stream here in Connecticut. Not a destination of traveling anglers, or a stream written in the pages of fly fishing literature. But it is home to wild brook trout and for this angler that's enough.
It's little runs and plunges hold brook trout...if your "not" careful you'll see them as they dart away.
But when care is used and a fly placed on the water a little jewel will grace your hand.
I'm glad for these tiny places, and I'm always excited to fish these small streams.
The true "spirits of the stream".....
