The Gold And Mahogany Of October
This time of year it's easy to get caught up in the magnificent colors that abound. Most everybody favors those striking reds and brilliant oranges which seem to highlight most of the pictures of a New England countrysides. Well friends let me tell you of a couple of other colors that I favor. Those colors are the various golds and the regal mahogany. While fishing a blue line last week those two colors seem to dominate. My eyes could not get enough of these colors. Every time I gazed out along the stream there was gold and mahogany.
Like the reds and oranges, colors which are prevalent on brook trout, gold and mahogany are prevalent on wild brown trout.
Rich colors highlight this little brown.
The stream was in tip top condition. The only fly used today was a muddler variant fished dry.
Impressive, strong and handsome. Notice the deep brown color of the fins on this brown.
A wind blown branch lies in the sweet spot of this run....get the fly in there and usually there's a fish.
And there was.
Fiber optic? It was a great day out there. The gold and mahogany, foliage and wild browns.
