Two Minute Brown
by Ashton Chatelain
My sweetheart and I spent a half day in the Uinta National Forest. I took a couple of minutes after lunch to catch a brown trout on this blue fly. The fly is made from dubbed clippings from the TenkaraBum yarn, and was taken on its first pass over the fish.
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin
"Study to be quiet." - Izaak Walton 1653
"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662
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.
