TFF:Mountain Brook Trout Caught 01/07/08

Recommended Posts

Well all it was a sunny 66 today. My wife, god bless her, suggested I do a little fly fishing since I had the day off. Seemed like a good thought to me so off I went with my brand new 6'6" 2 weight to the mountains to do a little brook trout fishing. Let me say this, after being there a while, I forgot how hard it is to cast on a small mountain stream. I also forgot just how spooky those native mountain stream brookies can be. It has been several years since I last went out and fly fished for them. The funny thing is, I cut my teeth doing this kind of fishing. Well after much fighting with trees, rocks and the odd bush and losing 5 flies in three minutes to them, I managed to catch the first nine brook trout of the season. Not too bad for the beginning of January. They were all caught on a size 16 yellow humpy. Well...thought I would share.
