Wild Sunday

My buddy Derrick and I took advantage of a beautiful autumn afternoon and visited a local wild trout stream. Many other anglers had the same idea, as I've never seen it so crowded before. The water here is most always running clear, but it seemed especially so on this day. We stuck to 6x tippet and long leaders for the extra spooky trout. A seine net sample revealed a healthy amount of cress bugs and the imitation I tied on eventually brought a young-of-the-year brown to the hand. Many of our favorite pools had been whipped into submission before our arrival, but it was still great to sit along a stream in mid-November in a long-sleeve T-shirt.
