Last week Bill Trussell asked me when we here in Connecticut would receive our first frost. Normally the northwestern part of the state gets it first and that's usually the last week of September. Where I live in central CT. it's generally mid October. Well Bill we got a frost yesterday morning, and one this morning. I gauge cold mornings by the way my coffee cup feels when I reach for it in the morning. I lift it off the counter and if it feels cold and hot water is needed to warm it up before I fix my coffee then it's a frosty morning.
I fished yesterday and found the stream very much to my liking. The leaves are starting to thin so sections that were shaded are now open to more sun. Naturally this leads to more cautious trout.
I noticed some of these, I think they are edible. Help needed on a ID.
A lovely little run/pool. Places like this almost certainly hold trout, but where would they be? I took a guess they would be at the tail of the pool. The fly was cast about mid pool and allowed to drift. It's completion went untouched. Several more casts brought the same result. I then cast the fly to the very head of the pool into the broken water. The fly hung up on a stone, as I pulled the fly free I saw a fish move towards it. Lifting it up and casting again I got the fly to float freely and the fish hit it again.
