Today was a day for wild things. I did some hiking, some brook trout stalking, and just had some just general outdoor enjoyment. The flies I used today were the pink worm, the Humpy, and the BT Hair Tail (thanks Alan, it's a good fly). They each caught fish. Most were not in the mood for photography and frankly neither was I. I saw some dear, some red tailed hawks, and I even heard some wood frogs in a vernal pool. It's spring, they said.
On part of the hike I passed a ledge and found this boulder full of garnet. Also, a rare water soluble mineral.
