A four day fishing trip for the early season. The family went south to Florida. Someone had to stay home and take care of the dog. Figured we would go fishing. The weather looked like it might not be so good.
Saturday - April 04
On Saturday the weatherman was right
2 counties - 2 streams.
One with a very large spring.
The second one had a barb wire fence hanging in the air and a largish black tarp ghost protecting a big trout in a little hole.
Sunday - April 05
On Sunday the weatherman was right
Only 1 stream today, with a big beaver pond with many brook trout in it.
Monday - Apr 06
On Monday, the weatherman was wrong.
Cold, but a high blue bird sky.
A trout ninja
my first fish of the day - it'd been caught at least once before
Can't see it in this pic, but many bwo's on the water
The lunch and lunch time beers in the car park.
many trout on BWO's
Tuesday - Apr 07
The weatherman was wrong again.
Sunny all day - high in the low 50s.
My friend Bruce took me to a stream I had never fished before, these are the boiling springs headwaters.
there were many browns, more were hooked and lost than landed.
This is the first brown trout on fly in 30 years for Bruce. Nice fish.
The route. Spent Sat and Mon night at Bruce and Sue's cabin. Sunday night in the music room at John and Debs. Thanks for the hospitality.
