I was able to get some well deserved trout fishing in the last few days. Striper fishing has been a 9 out-of 10 night commitment lately, and the troutin' has taken a back seat the last few days. this long weekend's crappy evening weather has kept me home at night, and it wasn't long before i thought' "effin' hell, the trout don't mind the water, so I ain't gonna mind a little rain"  I had really instead wanted to instead go to a flymphin event at the Catskill  fly fishing museum,  but after a quick google map-quest to find out that it was 3 hours, 20 minutes away. Memorial day traffic to go to NY.... no thanks.  Kinda glad I didn't spend the gas money. 
I did however use yesterday to honor the wing-less wet. I tied up a killer flymph and hit the woods.
I have taken many triut out from this giant deep pool on a stream that usually isn't wider than 8 ft.
this is the stream itself, carrying food downstream into the trout pool, it's maybe 4 ft wide here
after a little pour for Pete Hidy, the mojo was good, & the flymphin began to produce.
all the red dots on this guy were in a row... I used a leaf, because my hand was dry, but the rain had soaked everything around me.



  1. Nice brookies and a nice break from the salt...

  2. If you can't see the classics then fish with them. Great fish and a beautiful reel! Glad to see the brookies.

  3. Nice bunch of Brookies and on classic gear. Nice!
