My Personal Best....

.... for the smallest brookie  I've landed.
fought like a sonofabitch though.
wasn't the only one taken to hand today, these locals were hungry!  There was no ice, and the pressure was low.  ya ain't catchin'as much ina high pressure.  It was a good day.  My bud even managed one of his largest fallfish ever!!  ...
 This guy, about 10", came out to have a deformed tail. The bottom half was missing, yet he was maybe one of the largest today at the 'Trout Box'

Sunday fly tying

I got together with the usual fly fishing addicts Sunday in an effort to fill up our boxes. With the Wife and kid at a Cinderella play in Colchester,  we had the afternoon all to ourselves to curse, drink, and chill out. (oh yeah, and tie some flies)
    I got down on banging out some tricos using a new material:    paracord 550 innards.    Inside paracord 550, there are 7 white inner cords (non-mil style)   these nylon cords on a sz 24 dry hook made what I thought looked like great wings.... Might be another story on the water, we'll see.
