For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form

My new hat. Truly it is some of the finest head-wear an angler can wear. My old hat had just about crumbled the last time I wore it. It had been with me on my adventures over the last 7 years. It now sits in a place of quiet, where dry and warm are the norm. In case you are wondering where you could get the ultimate in headgear you can contact the "Searun Brook Trout Coalition" you'll find the link at the bottom of this post...I can't say it will help you in your fishing but it sure will benefit the "salter" brook trout.
I christened my new hat on a small stream in Connecticut. It was a beautiful day and so comfortable. I'm a fly fisher and fishing is the ultimate reason for being out here on the streams, but not the only reason. I love photographing natural things no matter what they are. The pictures may not appear as I saw them but I try to give you the closest thing....weeds, in the right light they are so beautiful.
These seemed to be growing, fungi perhaps?
The third cast of the day, with my new hat on yielded a well conditioned brook trout. This lovely creature literally slammed a soft-hackle.
Can you imagine a brook trout living here, well 3 of them were, and 2 of them got away.
This chameleon was my last fish of the day. It took a rather large fly, dinner and desert in one. Beautiful days friends.
