Images

Posted here are some images of the wonders that surround the small stream. They may be small wonders but they are very large in the heart and soul of this angler. I hope you can take from these and put the thoughts of what they represent into your days and I truly hope all of you can enjoy the experience for yourself.

      Pete it seems like we try to compete with mother nature, but always come up way short. She is special.

  6. Great pictures, Alan. I enjoyed them all. Interesting that old picnic table left in the field. Someone must have had some good meals there years ago.

      Sam that field is very near a beautiful stream. They still hold youth field trips there, but skip lunch.

  7. Alan, I have been asked over the years why I enjoy fly fishing so much. Most people see it as a man waveing a line in the air to catch a fish. Your images tell the real reason I persue this passion , wonderful photos, thankyou.

      Brad when a person seeks the true meaning of fly fishing, I mean scrape away all the gunk and fluff. Observe all that's around you, when this is done then the next fish you catch will be the once in a lifetime catch. And this will happen each time your out.

  8. Thank you for a glimpse of what appear to be healthy Hemlocks in a couple of your snapshots. I truly hope that they do not suffer the same fate as their kin in the southern end of the range. We seem to be losing them all and how we will miss those silent guardians.

      The hemlock seems to be holding it's own. The southeast part of CT has seen some damage, but has remained sort of stable. I have done several posts on the hemlock they are truly a trouts best friend.
