Veteran's Day, day two....
Last week I wrote about a Sunday outing, it was part of the Veteran's Day weekend which as it turns out was the best day weather wise this month. The day started cool but warmed into the sixties. This was going to be the last day of the season for fishing my bamboo rod. I'm told that below freezing temps and bamboo do not work. So off I went and enjoyed the November day.
The stream was a bit low, but then again this stream has always been a low flow one. For years now I have said how brookies can do miracles within the streams they live and this one is a perfect example.
I soon found some willing participants and the day was a success with the first wild one to hand.
Moving along I found a few pools that have been good fish holders in the past and they did not change.
Another healthy brookie. As it turned out this one was the biggest of the outing.
I certainly picked a good day to end the season for SSR's bamboo.
