With Apologies to John Gierach and Blog Readers...... Even Brook Tout get the Blues
Fly: Blue Killer Bug
Rod: Kiyotaki 24
Took my wife's rod fishing for small stream brookies. They preferred dries but after I lost my first fly, I switched to the blue Killer Bug and managed to catch maybe 15 in a couple of hours. I'm so photographically challenged I took just the one photo on a convenient bed of green. I worry about keeping them out of the water the 15-30 seconds it takes to snap a photo even though water temps were below 60.

The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
