|Pipeline Pool, Farmington River|
Another streamer named after a well known pool on the Farmington River. This pool and it's nooks and crannies can give up some wonderful trout. It can be a bit tricky to fish, but is always worth the effort. In this pool is where I took my PB brook trout last year.
This is where I saw a angler fish for a long long time, casting his dry fly to one fish. The fish would rise and miss the fly. This continued for quite awhile, but I was told by another angler that was with this gent, that he eventually won and was able to land the trout.

Alan - Beautiful work as always! One of my favorite stretches of riverReplyDelete
It's also a fave of mine, but I seem to gravitate to other places first.
Sure is a pretty fly. One of my favorite pools on the entire river.ReplyDelete
The pool is always active, and the reason is well known.
Beutiful fly... Makes me think of a Fontinalis Fin wet fly. Awesome!ReplyDelete
Yes your right. I may try a variation using a black hackle in the mix, or some peacock herl for a topping.
Would make a wonderful fall fly for brookies.
Do you fish the Farmington in the winter months? I would imagine there could be some quality trout taken during this time of the year. I am impressed with the pattern used on this streamer. Thanks for sharing
No I don't, that river this time of year will give up some beauts, but the thought of falling in makes me want to fish smaller waters.
Great looking streamer! Was that where I caught my rainbow?ReplyDelete
No John, you did fish this pool and I think you had a fish rise to your fly but miss.
Your fine rainbow was taken further downstream.
All I remember was parking at a campground in the woods and walking upstream to where I caught the fish. Looking forward to going back this year.Delete
beautifully tied Alan, looks like a useful salt water sea trout fly too.ReplyDelete
Those sea trout like the color orange?
Love it! Wonderful looking fly Alan.ReplyDelete
Darren, lots of orange. A fine fly tyer from Maine liked all orange.
This section of the river reminds me of the Ausable below Wilmington, NY. The streamer has some "striking" color to it!ReplyDelete
Both are wonderful sections. Quite a bit of orange, but it blended nicely.
