I had a little less than an hour of free time today. I quickly packed gear, hopped on the bike, and rode to a tiny section of stream holding Native Brookies. I saw rises immediately and tied on an Adams. It went out onto the slick pool, and came back attached to this fellow:
This routine continued until I had a few much bigger takes. I eventually succeeded in hooking the bellow fish. She ran circles in the pool and shook her head in attempt to avoid capture. Luckily for her I am strictly catch and release. Her dark flanks had evenly distributed spots, appearing like the late sunset sky.
The rest of the week I will be too busy to fish, so it may be as much as ten days before I get any day trips. I'll try to fit in the occasional post anyway.
