For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form
Poking is good.
Mark KautzThanksA poke we did. Some pretty thick stuff out there.
Now that's a slab of brookie! Bet that one added some bend in your rod. That fly looks like one of my new favorite streamers...Montreal Whore. Happy poking Allen.
Matthew HardingThanksMatt he was a chore to handle both for rod and me. That streamer is a winner, and now it's winning on the west coast.
Alan,I have to agree with Matthew Harding's assesment above! What a thick bodied fish! I am so happy to see you in persuit of such wonderful trout! Always keep us up to date on these salters for we can only assume that they get bigger and bigger as the season rolls on!Dougsden
DougsdenThanksDoug I caught that fish last year, and I remember it like it was yesterday. We looked at a couple of streams yesterday but found no salters.
Boy that is one beautiful salter brook trout in that picture. Good luck finding some in Connecticut too.
SamThanksSam we covered some water yesterday but found no salters. Wild brookies and browns but nothing that looked like it was in the salt.
Hi AlanThat is a really nice fish you have there......I have been busy catching up on missed fishing time this weekend with two trips on the Tees in County Durham. They produced some mixed bags of fish: a couple of really nice brownies of around a pound and a half; lots of trout in the half pound range; a monster of an out of season grayling which was well over two pounds and, encouragingly, four salmon smolts which were bright silver ready to head to sea (I just hope they are missed by cormorants, nets, seals, etc.... and can return like your salter!)I look forward to your post on your salter trip.Alistair
AlistairThanksWow you have been busy. Your catch rate has been very good with that grayling taking the cake. It seems like those wanting to go to sea have such a gauntlet to pass.Keep fishing mate.
That would be great news if you could find some!
MarkWThanksMark we found a couple of streams that flow into L.I. sound. We caught brookies and browns but could not determine if they move back and forth into the saltMore investigating necessary.
