I don't often find consistently rising brookies in these types of small streams, usually just some sporadic rises, but I saw this guy come up at least ten times in the same spot. He was a bit picky too. He refused a bomber and an elk hair caddis before finally taking an ant.
*I'm going to try to incorporate more videos in this blog, some may be really cool, some may have crappy editing. It's going to be a work in progress, I hope you all enjoy it though.
I didn't use one subsurface fly today. What a feeling! Two streams, tons (about 15 in total) of gorgeous little natives, and not one shiver. Terrific.
I have Friday off, and I plan to do an early sea run brown trip. Hopefully there will be some other species around too, maybe shad or bass (smallmouth or largemouth, maybe even stripers). I have a commitment that will take up all of Saturday, but Sunday I may either go for sea runs again or do some small stream wild brown dry fly fishing.
