The stream is lined with hemlocks...many trout lillies were in bloom this day.
Fishing the runs and pools that normally hold fish I encountered several willing natives.
A well fed healthy brookie. No dry flies this day.
Parts of this stream are a pleasure to walk along. Many clearings and almost no brush.
Another fine brook trout. They were in the mood for a purple and starling soft-hackle.
I did manage one from the black hole this day. A beautiful fish that took a soft-hackle.
A fly for perhaps an evening on the black hole?
