That being said, it is a beautiful stream and the surroundings are stunning. We ran into some cool man made structures, both new and old.
Instead of hiking in to another stream in the next drainage we went back to the area around where I live and fished two more streams. A tiny one, where I caught one little brooky on an ant, and the nice stream in the deep ravine, where we both caught some really nice fish.
The ravine brook has to be the prettiest that I fish regularly.
The Yellow Palmer did it's job in the tail of this flat. While Kirk caught one on a Picket Pin I got mine to come up to the top.
My next two fish came to me in a most unusual and surprising way. I took both on the same fly in the same cast!!! I could see them both battling for the fly in the glass clear water, but when they both got hooked... well, I was baffled! Some how they both stayed attached until I got them to hand when the bigger one either let go or came free, but he was already caught.
Kirk and I both caught a few more of this streams incredible fish. All of them seemed so willing to eat, and the strain that lives in this watershed is one of the prettiest bunch I have come across.
