I was rewarded with not one but two takers. The "Hammer" still has it.
It was a beautiful day, and I enjoyed my return home.

The day was sparkling, a blue sky, soft wind and what I would say was a perfect flow. It was in this place that I hooked my first brook trout.
The soft subtle movement of the fly was to hard to resist.
It did, and they were full of fight.
I found several willing char. This one had an impressive tail, and used it.
The battle tested Waterhen Bloa. They work very well on this "side of the pond".....

A nice run that in the past held some nice natives. Several flies offered but no takers.
Moving upstream I managed a few more hook-ups on various flies.
Another sign of spring. Notice the color at the base of the plant and notice the color....
