Last trip before Christmas

Alan, Mark and I returned to the woods for another shot at catching some wild brookies before the weather change and Christmas.  With the water temperature up by 3-4 degrees, compared to our last visit, the fish seemed to be somewhat more cooperative during their midday burst of activity.  All of us caught, landed and photographed a number of beautiful little brookies during their lunch period.  Caddis patterns (EC caddis and Henryville Special) proved to be quite effective, particularly for many of the stream's small residents.

Happy Holidays everyone.


  1. Nice to be out with you again Kirk...Merry Christmas

  2. Good stuff,
    When you took the photo, next to last, did you see that brookie lying to the left.

    Merry Christmas.

    1. No and I still don't! You'll have to show me.
