For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form
Sunday, May 12, 2019
As I look out my window I see the rains falling. It is a light and gentle rain which makes one feel sleepy. Then the tempo picks up and it's pouring to the point that visibility is hampered. There are times when rain can present problems, to that I say I'm sorry. But now I look upon the water falling from the gray clouds as a true blessing. Without going into the benefits to all that the rain gives I now concentrate on the benefits it brings to the brook trout. So important it is to the actual life of this native. It requires the purity that rainwater can deliver. The sheer volume of rain does determine the movements of the brookie. It brings large amounts of various foods both aquatic and land based. It is a time of plenty for this native and I can't say if he really knows that this is happening, but I know I do and that I'm glad to see as much rain as we can possibly receive.
