Good morning folks. A few days ago I had one of my best days on the stream this year. Kirk and Rowan and myself joined up to fish a little stream. The day started out cloudy but mild. The water flows were perfect and the clarity of the stream was unbelievable. I must say upfront that I did not move much from where I entered the stream, maybe a 100 yards and that maybe stretching it some. My reasoning for this was...the very first cast that Rowan made as we reached the streams edge was a rise to a caddis dry and subsequent hook-up. After seeing that how could I change locations.
Kirk and Rowan moved upstream and downstream, both had very good success. The brookies were very hungry this day.
Gin clear, very nice temperatures, and the sun made an entry which felt so good.
My first of the day took a purple and starling spider. The fish was so beautiful and still holding brilliant colors.
These fish were strong, healthy and so pretty.
Lots of "nooks and crannies" here, and lots of brook trout too.
Most of the fish today were taken on just two spider patterns. The purple and starling and this one.
A size 18, brown thread body, a sparse hares thorax, and two turns of starling.
My last brookie of the day, and the prettiest. That Cane And Silk glass rod is so perfect for this type of fishing....right Mr. Fontinallis?
