For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form
Monday, February 17, 2020
I have been some what lax in my duties here at SSR's. I have not written a post in 4 days and that is not like me for sure. It seems a cold has been boxing me for about two weeks. Not to brag now but I think I put the fellow down on the mat for good. Today I will set out to fish a stream, perhaps the one that's pictured here. A lovely place with a some what gentle walk and easy access to the stream. A few things in my favor today are the weather and an overwhelming desire to fish. Now if things turn out OK I may even have a few fish take my fly. I'm going to fish that Rio line today which I'm looking forward to.
The stream has many like this guy swimming within its confines. A good soft-hackle may fool him.
Last night I tied this soft-hackle. A Tups blend of dubbing and a dun hackle. Is it ready for prime time? We shall see.
