The Common Brook Trout…


always strikes me as uncommonly handsome.   While I love the gymnasium skills of the rainbow, the brook trout always draws my eyes deep into its spots for an extended inspection.  For the brookie, there is also a seemingly automatic, ritualistic inside whisper that preceeds her departure…”what a pretty fish”.

    • Thanks for commenting. Having had a look at his nice fins…I thought he might be a native guy but wasn’t sure. Hey, are you finding fish hitting your stimulator fly on a dead drift under the surface as well as on top? I got of my fish recently withbthe fly at least 2″ below the surface.

      • Only on top in quieter water, but in faster currents both seem to get fish for me. They do seem a little fly size particular at times.
