First attempt at blue lining

After reading about the practice of blue lining, I sat down with a computer and searched for potential small streams to fish within a reasonable distance of my house in southeastern CT.  I chose this stream because of its location in a designated "open space" and the fact that it flowed into a well known river.  My guess paid off.  While it is quite small, there are many small native brookies in it.  I was also fortunate to trick one larger fish (bottom photo) with a picket pin after it swiped at but missed a muddler minnow (my comfort fly from my fly fishing beginnings).

  1. Nice work.

    That first brookie is beautifully colored. That last one is a generous size.
