|It was nice to be on the water before the sun.|
|A very pretty native, a less common catch for this Brown dominated stream|
|What a fantastically beautiful fish!|
I switched the rig to include a Black Leach and that fly got me another nice wild brown. the two bigger ones from the excursion (in the 10-14 inch range) are less common in this stream, although there are some true beasts around the 20 inch range. After that very colorful leach eater I tied on a beet for some dry fly action and was rewarded with some more pretty fish.
Back downstream I returned to the nymphs, and very quickly doubled up with two large stocked brookies. That is a situation I have never experienced, and the bottom fish didn't take long to pluck off it's fly. I did land the top fish, but was disappointing not to have gotten the chance to photograph such a lucky event.
