Spring Weekend And "streamers for little waters".....
This past weekend was perfect here in the northeast. Weather was about as good as it gets this time of year. The steams of southwest Mass. are in top shape and hold some very pretty and very hungry brook trout. This one particular stream was very iced up about a month ago but as you can see that's changed. Although the brookies were hungry they preferred their food be taken sub-surface. Dark bodied soft-hackles and streamers got these fish going wild.
This colorful fellow was hiding in that back eddy near the bank.
"Trout Lilly" first sighting this spring.
Love those streamers, in the spring and well just about every season.
If your in the area of East Hartford CT this Wednesday the 10th, I'll be tying "streamers for little waters" and soft-hackles. The Connecticut Fly Fisherman's fly tyers roundtable will be held at Veterans Memorial Clubhouse. It starts at 7pm. You can find out directions at their website.
