The brook trout were enthusiastic despite the raw day and showed an interest in a variety of flies. Sometimes you just want to fish a certain way, even if it isn't the most productive for the conditions. Today was one of those days, I really wanted to fish a dry so I chose one of Fran's mini muddler since I could fish it both dry and wet. The fish took it off the surface keeping my dry fly streak alive but they also took it stripped sub-surface.
