A Mountain Stream
A mountain stream who's headwater origin is unknown. It flows over boulder and log this day as it has for perhaps centuries. The waters are cold and clear, the mosses are at time a brilliant green and seem to highlight the stream. Along its run it makes contact with deer, fox, and many birds. It is a series of pools which lie below large boulders. these pools deep and dark hold wild brook trout. These trout can be seen at times rising to insects that fall into the streams waters.
This stream allows an angler to cast flies upon its waters. It cares not weather its a perfectly tied Catskill Dry, or a rough cut Ausable Wulff. What it should demand is that nothing be changed, and that all who live in and around this mountain stream to what nature had intended.
So if you see this mountain stream in your travels please enjoy what it offers, and please respect it.
