BAD DAY GOOD DAY
(up state NY)
55 and raining. I was not having a good morning, but decided to push it and go back to a creek I had fished 2-3 weeks before in southern Vt. Then I had no luck. The creek is mostly quartz, rose quartz, and light tan rock. The water is crystal clear. It is in one of Vt. wilderness areas (east coast wilderness is not true wilderness, but we are very lucky to have the gov. protecting it). I was surprised a what I caught. The wild Brook Trout were gold colored. It is my thinking that the light colored rock and clear water have worked to lighten the color pigment of the trout. They were from 4" - 8". It was one of the most rewarding fishing day of my life. I fished with my KURENAI H30. 9' of #3 fluorocarbon, 1' of 4X and 2 - 4' of 7 X. I used a #14 unweighted peacock herl Tenkara fly. I had to do major sneaking and use pin point casts and still spooked many trout. I did take photos and hope to work on my computer soon so I can post them. A bad day worked out to be one of my most rewarding fishing days.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
