Monday I fished a new stream, it's been there perhaps forever, none the less new to me. I had seen the stream many years ago but not until Monday did I venture off and fish it. If lows in typical fashion with some impressive pools, which were quite large and it also contained some very slippery rocks. In my last post I wrote about a fly called a "Smoke Fly", and this was the day I would test it.
The day featured sun and clouds, a normal Spring day. This was not the first pool I came to but it was the first I fished. The fly was cast to the bank and drifted a few feet, the fish came from the undercut and took the fly...new fly, first cast and the first fish of the day.
What a beautiful fish.
The fly kept on producing and at one point in the pool pictured above I took 5 brookies on 5 consecutive casts. The stream is healthy.
The stream looks to be on private land, for I noticed an electric fence. There were no posted signs, but I'll have to do some further research.
This little guy had some pronounced orange spots, man he's pretty.
She's lovely also, several were observed.
