Today was unusually warm for December in New England, but I'm not complaining. It was good fishing weather! With fog swirling about, I hit a very native brook trout stream. The sizable trout there are spread out and very, very, very skittish. I crawled into position above a good pool that has a small dirt road crossing above it. Without this road a good cast would be impossible, as there are tons of logs crossing the tail. I worked a Kate McKlaren wet, and a little trout snapped at it. The tiny fish was captured with minimal effort. I didn't succeed in hooking any more fish, bt went home pleased to have hooked one of the streams tricky residents.
