For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form
Friday, June 5, 2020
Good morning fellow throwers of the fly. You see before you a plate of corn pancakes, melted butter and maple syrup. A fine way to start the day. Fishing for trout has been really good. They have settled in sort of and the usual places in the stream is where you can find them. They have been very receptive to top water flies and that's what I have been giving them. I have not featured one of my best dry flies here in some time, but I have been fishing it right along. It still brings them up in any stream in any type of water. Bright sunlight or cloudy skies it really doesn't matter.
The bright clear water of this run produced several rises. I managed a couple of hookups and one to hand.
These wild brookies are in great condition. Healthy and strong.
This is the riffle at the head of a pool. In that pool were a group of brookies that I encountered. They came up and took the fly. One stayed on for a second and broke off. The other missed it twice.
