Journal Entry.... 5-28-11

I was able to free myself for a few hours yesterday, and headed for a favorite small stream. The sun was bright with the air temp about 78. The water temps were at 60. As I was fishing a nice run that I favor I noticed a raccoon who was wandering around in a daze. This fellow kept crossing the stream, back and forth. Not wanting a confrontation, I packed up and moved to an altogether different location.
As it turned out the move was OK. Fishing a small green worm pattern I was into some fine fish, and managed a few to hand.

There is some wonderful beauty along the stream

There is also some wonderful beauty from the stream.

I'd like to say a few words about this rod. It's a TFO Signature Series 6ft 2wt. This rod performs very well on these small streams that I fish.


  1. Glad you had a nice day on the water. Great photos!

  2. That stream photo sure makes me wish I was there instead of stuck at work! Great photos ,gotta love those little wild browns.....Jeff

  3. Sanders,
    Thanks. It was a fine day for sure.

    Thanks. There is so much fight in those little wild ones.
    That old saying. A bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work.

  4. Finding a raccoon wandering around like that could mean rabies. Good thing you moved away. Better safe than sorry.


  5. Great photos. I really like the flowers. The trout looks like glass. That is one sweet 6ft fly rod. Looks like it would work well around here.

  6. Crazy Raccoon yields Wild Browns. Great post.

  7. Mark,
    That's exactly what was in my mind. I felt kinda sorry for it, but it's part of nature.

    Trout Magee,
    Thanks. The rod is going to be on many more of my outings.

    Thanks. Your right on. I never thought of it that way.

  8. Great pictures and beautiful looking fish as always.

    Thanks for sharing.

  9. Great post and really great pictures, quite beautiful. You've got yourself a new follower for sure.
