I don't like being outfished, particularly on a trout stream by my spin-fishing colleague. Dalton caught seven Brook Trout today on spinners. I managed one. Regardless of the fact that they were all stockers, they were pretty and fought well. One Dalton caught was pushing sixteen inches.

My lonely Brooky took a size eight yellow bodied orange soft hackle. When they are attacking other's spinners, this fly is killer. I did get a few good chubs on a March Brown, and was covering a rise when two beavers went through the pool and shut him off.

Here is the big boy:

    1. It was just frustrating. I was happy to see another's success.
