As you can see the rod is handsomely appointed.

My view yesterday morning. What a way to start the day.
I can remember the first time on this run, it's pretty much the same.
There is work being done to create habitat. This is a prime example.
And of course the reason for it all. Wild brook trout.
I had the pleasure of meeting three people along my way. These folks were familiar with Crowningshield....if any of you can please visit, you will not be disappointed.

Well John your words came true and here is the proof.
I picked up some Italian sausage at a small market. The label said "hot" sausage but knowing markets I took that meaning very lightly. That afternoon I grilled it up and man did it look awesome.
As it cooked I took a small piece to test to see if it was cooked. Well folks this is one time when "hot was hot", I want to tell you it smoked me. The Mrs. was not pleased but she tolerated it.
Some red and green peppers and a few onions and a hard roll and the burning was not the bad.

My cautious moves netted this male in spawning colors.
But a little further upstream I connected with another fine jewel. I'll be back up this way before the snow flies, and I'll be looking for that 14 inch fellow.

Vast areas of hardwoods and fir. Mixed in were white birch.
Rivers and streams were at seasonal levels, no doubt brook trout were getting ready to spawn.
Enjoy your weekend.

A beautiful slick pool along with a small stream reflection. The waters here break into a deep section of water, a likely place for a brook trout to be waiting.
A gorgeous little run. Along that section of woody debris was a brookie.
The beadhead worked and this fine red spotted brookie was the reward.
