"Good Morning Folks"...enough or to much, minimum or maximum...what did I forget, and I'll never need that. Those are some of the thoughts that we as fly fishers ponder, I know the first question is one I'm always tossing about. Now is that to much eggs, or potatoes should I omit the sausage? Oh man. Well I've got a few more...perhaps you have the same thoughts.
On a recent trip to the Cape I carried my usual compliment of gear. Several boxes of flies, and two rods of different sizes. All that was needed is shown above. This has been the case for every trip I've made there. "Enough is some times to much".....
A local small stream..enough water for sure, a nice deep gentle pool, it's sure to hold a fish or two, then why fish the skinny riffle below?
I love tying flies. Those beautiful Rangeley streamers, classic Catskill patterns that are so exquisite, Bergman wet flies so beautiful, but.....Who can argue with the fly pictured here. Thread body, and a turn or two of hackle. Enough to catch a fish most any where.
Here's one thing I'll never have enough of....this beautiful almost unique colored brook trout was taken in a small Connecticut stream.
Some "food for thought" folks.
