Good morning folks. Before I get into a wonderful trout outing I'd like to tell you about the eggs featured in this photo. My daughter and son in law along with the two grandkids purchased 6 little chicks. Well long story short they are producing eggs like crazy. Jeanette and I have been getting regular deliveries of "fresh" eggs. Man they are awesome. What a way to start your day.
Monday was one of a string of beautiful spring days we have been experiencing. It was on the mild side when I parked the Honda. I got into my waders and geared up. The fly you see was the only fly I needed that day.
The stream.."perfection", my if only everyday could be like this.
"Trout Lilly"..a sign that all is well this spring morning.
It did not take long until the first brook trout was at hand. The sunlight and the clear water highlighted it's beauty.
Free flowing among the hemlocks.
Yet another variation in the coloration of CT's brook trout. This fish was exceptionally green. The photo really does not show it well. His dorsal fin is also green, I have not seen this before. This stream also produced a very light colored brook trout, I wrote about it several weeks ago.
Just beyond and to the right of this stone I observed a brook trout lying almost as if not alive. I observed for several minutes and there was no movement except for a slight tail twitch. I cast the fly just behind him and retrieved it slowly. As the fly passed him he moved like lightning to the fly.
The last jewel of the day. A day that will be hard to top.
