Yesterday was a day of transition. I was debating the thought of fishing and would have decided pretty quickly if not for the weather. Monday we had recieved some rainfall and depending where it was anything from substantial to just minimal. The temps had dropped overnight and the winds picked up big time with gusts to 45mph. So I rolled the fly box and it came up "GO". The gear was put in the car and off I went.
Old dry leaves still hanging on.
A few steps away and signs of transition...green starting to take hold.
Water conditions were perfect. Clear, cold and a flow that could afford the angler a chance to get close.
A "Bomber Brookie"...the dry fly was very effective today.
Is there any doubt that there is a trout in here?
Here is the answer. This beautiful wild jewel came up twice to get the fly. I was thankful he succeeded on the second try.
