So it did not come as a surprise today when I got to the stream and watched a fish rising very consistently to stone flies in a flat pool. The best imitation I had for them was an ant. By the time I was ready the fish had moved to the head of the pool and was rising every 30 seconds. I put the ant over him and the current dragged it down. I watched him chase and hit it in the tail. I missed, cast again, missed, returned the fly once more, and this time hooked him well. The take was beautiful, the brooky showed his whole head and dorsal fin like a tiny shark eating a tiny seal.
|For this section of stream, a very good fish!|
