A few more from today

I returned to the stream today to fish the upper stretch one more time.  As in the past, the fish again appreciated the Usual, Bomber and ant.  The second fish below struck twice at a Usual and then, after switching to an ant, I finally got it hooked and photographed.  In one pool further downstream the largest brookie I've seen in this stream attacked the Usual twice, but unfortunately (for me) it shook the hook each time and went into hiding.  The last brookie grabbed the Usual just as I was about to lift it from the stream.  It proved to be the largest (maybe similar in size to the lost one) and most impressive fish of the day.  This is a very special stream.


  1. Sounds like you've found a couple nice streams in the last few weeks! Been doing some looking myself and have a couple to check out as soon as the rain lets off

  2. It looks as if I'm going to have to visit this soon as it stops raining.
