A few months ago a long time reader of SSR's sent me some beautiful Catskill style dry flies. "Parachute Adams" is the gent, and his name is Sam. These flies are an art form and are difficult to tie. I don't tie many of these and I'm so happy when someone ties them for me and generously sends them my way.
Well yesterday I took the box of flies and hit a favorite small stream. My day was a success.
A little stream, and my favorite area of a small stream..."riffles"
The first wild jewel to hand...taken on a Royal Wulff...these flies are built for broken water.
Another Wulff pattern. Broken water or slick pool, killer patterns...tied perfectly.
Such beautiful color variations on these brook trout.
Such beautiful coloration along the stream, and I might add sounds and smells.
Although I fished 3 patterns, the Royal Wulff was the top producer..peacock and red might have had something to do with that. Thanks, Sam.
I had a wonderful few hours on the stream. Here is a short video clip..I hope you'll enjoy it.
