Boo-boo thumb

My brookie finger is temporarily indisposed.  Possibly two weeks with no fishing.  I hope I can survive that long!

Today's fishing report

One fish on, one fish off.  Other than that it was a quiet day at the nearest Class 1 trout stream.  The beautiful weather gave me a chance to test a new rod and reel before my thumb is surgically repaired.

Trout habitat?

I will be very disappointed if I discover next month that this brook does not harbor brookies or browns, even if they are small.  While I saw no evidence of fish as I walked its banks, I did see winter stone flies which I interpret as a good sign.  At least there is insect life associated with this beautiful little stream.
