Spawning Brookies, Royal Coachman, And Pumpkin Seeds
Lots of good things taking place in the last few days. I walked a stream and was rewarded with some of natures autumn rites. I observed many pairs of spawning brookies, and even managed to photograph a couple. I also fished a Royal Coachman dry fly and had a few brookies rise to this beautiful fly. I was able to bring one or two to hand. And with Halloween, came to carving of the pumpkin and that means roasted pumpkin seeds. A great treat.

You must be very stealthy to capture a couple of brookies via picture in that small of a stream... or a really big lens! Nice job.ReplyDelete

Passinthru Outdoors, thanks. I just checked out your NJ hunt part 2, great stuff.
Very nice post as always. Great to have a little gem of a brookie stream so close. You're right, those pumpkin seeds to make for a nice treat.ReplyDelete
once again a nice post. I roasted some seeds the other day. What a treat. First time trying it and now I am hooked.ReplyDelete
The seeds you do yourself are so much better than some of the store bought.
