I had a short family outing today, and I decided to show my mom and brother a special stream that is in some particularly beautiful surroundings. In the stream are some sizable wild brook trout, although I've felt the past two times that I visited this stream that it wasn't showing its full potential. Today I think it was generous. We were there for no longer than half an hour and I had my line on the water for maybe ten minutes. I caught four brookies on the only fly I used, and Ausable Ugly, and they were all good sized, healthy, and dark colored creatures. Awesome! What a great, albeit short trip with family.
