For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form
That's awesome Alan Great to see you finding fish - and really pretty brookies too!
HibernationThanksWill I have only scratched the surface of this stream.I hope the rest of fares as well.
The re-do is even neater than the original, and I didn't think that was possible. Those are just lovely wild fish.
William ShuckThanksBill you remember the original post. Now I have several more, just waiting to push further up stream.
Those brookies are beauties. Stream looks like it is flowing very well !! You do find some beautiful waters to fish!
TROUT1ThanksPete the stream was just about perfect, the brookies were perfect. I was able to access the stream thanks to the landowners.
Great post as always. Was the orange fly one from your recent post on North Country flies?
dawgvet1ThanksYes it was..."Chestnut Blonde"
Happy Easter and thanking the Lord for our beautifully colored swimming "easter eggs"! Also very thankful for the wonderful community of people that write these blogs, respond to the blogs, and make these so enjoyable. Blessings to you all!
dawgvet1My friend we do for you.Happy Easter.
What a way to begin a Saturday morning! Hot coffee, Eggs, Beautiful water, and, stunning Brook Trout photography!Made my day, Alan!
Mel-Fly Tyin TimesThanksMel sounds like you had a wonderful breakfast.Water and brook trout compliments of nature.
Great post as usual Alan. The stockies are slowing down. Caught only 2 yesterday. Might be they're getting schmarter or more likely their numbers are down dramatically (white bucket brigaders are taking their toll). Looking forward to tomorrow's hostina (feast). Kielbasa, shunka, sweet/sour kapusta and of course bobka and walnut rolls and poppyseed rolls. And perhaps a small nip of Bekerovka after dinner. Naz dravya alan.
John DornikThanksJohn I think they are now fished out. Sounds like something I would love. We usually get a bobka from a local Ukrainian Church, but missed the order date.Martin Rosol's fresh Easter kielbasa, pierogi's, ham, and pasta and meatballs.
Beautiful photographs of both stream and the wild gems that live in them, Alan. Don't you love when they get hooked in the lip for a quick and easy release? I had one Thursday night that took a parachute adams so deep the barbless hook was in the top part of the gill plate. Sadly I had to take that one home.Sam
Parachute AdamsThanksSam most times they will unhook themselves. An injured fish is something we all experience and it can't be helped. Taking it home and enjoying it is just fine.
I love it again!
Howard LevettThanksHoward you must experience it one day.
Alan ! Looks like you found another beautiful small stream. I love the last picture of the trout lilies! I haven't seen any myself yet this year. Happy Easter!
Mark WittmanThanksMark the lillies were not flowered but they srre will be now with the warms days we've had.Happy Easter.
AlanThis trip is the ultimate in small stream fishing!!!!----thanks for sharing
Bill TrussellThanksBill it was all new to me. Next trip I will venture further up.
A nice sunny day for a little stream fishing.
Mark KautzThanksMark it was bright, just a little breeze and air temps about 60....can't get much better.
Beautiful photos Alan as always your good taste for the quality of your photos, good start to the season, good luck friend.
Armando MilosevicThanksArmando when you have great subjects to photograph it makes it so much easier.
I saw you on post of Mark Wittman to the Aprl 8 on a fishing photography too,
Armando, we fished together that day on a little stream. Lots of fun.
