|A beautiful reflection, "small stream style"|
As I moved along the stream I noticed a few things. The places where I had before taken brookies were now void of them. Where did they go?
Well I finally managed to get one to take a dry fly. How beautiful is this...a male brook trout decked out in his autumn attire, rising to a classic dry fly...folks it does not get better then that.
The water at times looked so black. With the colored fallen leaves it looked like a night sky with the stars sparkling brightly.
I managed to fool a few more, I was surprised that all of the trout today were taken on dry flies.
But what was a plus this day was the sight of brook trout spawning all along the stream. I did not disturb them for their mission is far to important.
Mission accomplished....I viewed to whole process here. Thanks.
a fall outing is SO much better than a falling out. :)
Theresa nicely done....I might add its also better than "falling in"
What an awesome day, Alan. You caught brookies in a beautiful place, and witnessed something few of us ever will. I saw the brookies running up a small rivulet a couple of years ago just like salmon plowing through leaves and jumping small water falls. I hate to think what that little rivulet is like right now with the lack of rain. Regards, SamReplyDelete
Sam brook trout are by far the strongest willed fish. They will get to where they have to in order to carry on. I to witnessed them plowing into some difficult locations.
As far as rainfall is concerned I think the brookies will wait sometime if necessary.
stunning as always AlanReplyDelete
