Monday was the last outing of 2014. It's hard to believe the year is at end. I joined Kirk and Pete to fish a small stream. Kirk and I have fished it before and this was Pete's first time here. The weather was sunny and cold, not as cold as it's going to get in the next few days..still a great day to toss some flies. Coming to first long pool Pete, who is also known as "TROUT1" who is also known as the master of the bead head soft hackle cast the fly and was soon into a brookie. He stayed pretty much with that fly and was productive.
As we moved upstream both Kirk and I were given the opportunity to bring a few jewels to hand.
This stream has given up some fine fish. The health of these char is incredible. I have predicted that this stream will give up a 15 inch wild brook trout. One likely spot that may be home to such a brook trout is in the photo below. Several trout of about 12 inches have been spotted here. In the photo Pete is fishing the pool, with Kirk trying to figure out what fly they will take. The pool is quite deep with a dark rock ledge along the center. Pete so named this pool the "Black Hole"
Well I would like to wish all of you a safe and very "Happy New Year"

Happy New Year Mike to you and yours.
Best wishes to you and your family for 2015. I just found your blog and I am very happy! I am a swamp yankee that loves to chase Squaretails and Salmon. Have been flyfishing and tying from the 70's not as computer literate as most today. Grew up fishing Salters and White Perch on the Cape and Buzzards Bay with my grandfather, now North West CT and Canada. Thank You for the blog I will visit often, light lines !ReplyDelete
And a great 2015 to you and yours. Squaretails and salmon that's a nice pair indeed.
One of my favorite places to visit is the Cape. I love fishing for salters. I am glad you enjoy my blog and your visits as well as your comments are appreciated.
That looks like the perfect way to finish out a year. Happy Near Year and best to you in 2015!ReplyDelete
