Today, I thought I would fish a small bead head peacock bugger with a foam egg pattern trailed off the back. I've never fished egg flies before so today would be the trial run for some foam eggs that I tied recently. The trout definitely approved, totally ignoring the bugger in favor of the trailing egg. After a while, I simplified the rig and just used the egg with a couple of small split shot. A couple of hours on the stream produced half a dozen wild trout with lots of misses due to operator error. The last fish of the day was my favorite, a brook trout. This time of year, one never knows how many more opportunities there will be to get out again, so I was happy close out the day with a brook trout.
