Deep Pool Brookies

Today seemed a fine day to fish, so I headed out to a fine small stream. I fished upstream with dry flies but had no luck, so I went down to a very deep bridge pool. It has very little current, so I put on a big nymph and cast it out. I let it sink and slowly worked it back using the strip-tease nymphing method. On the third cast a fish took. It was a perfect native brooky. Shortly after I hooked and lost another. The very next cast I landed a second fish, another native. I got a few light taps over the next half hour but no more fish.

No skimping on the spots for this guy.
