A Little Bit Of Last Year And A Very Special Day
I'm told you are supposed to show photos and writings of the previous year before the New Year starts. Well that's how some do it but not me. It was a fabulous year 2018 and some very good days outdoors were racked up. 2019 has just started and I hope it will match the results of 2018. So until I can get out fishing I would like to share a few photos from last year.
Caddis flies..they are probably found most everywhere, and fish love them. I like tying them because they are almost fool proof. No matter how rag tag you can put them together they work.
Have you ever had real good bacon. Bacon that comes in a slab with the rind on. If not please find a shop where you can get it. Take it home and slice it thick and enjoy.
This was the smallest stream I fished last year. In the pool below the culvert I observed two small brookies. There was no way I could get close to the pool to make a cast. So I went upstream of the culvert and allowed the fly to drift through it. I could not see the trout take but felt it on. I unfortunately lost it in the culvert.
A Connecticut "salter"?
Hooked by the slimmest of margins and still made it to hand.
I had a blast fishing for these last year. This guy from Candlewood lake took a Spruce fly.
Today is National Spaghetti Day. A very special day at my home.
