The last post asked the question can you still fish dries in December. Well, yes you can most days even in snowy New England especially on small streams. So with the forecast of some warmer weather I headed to a favorite small brook committed to the dry fly game. A fresh snowfall the night before had the woods looking like a crystal palace as the sun tried to warm the cold earth.
I was hopeful that the several inches of rain we received over the last week would move some of the fish around and have them looking for meal. When I arrived, the small brook was a bit higher than I expected. It wasn't long before a small brook took a few swipes at the small parachute Adams. Generally, things were slow but I did bring a few small brooks to hand and missed a couple larger fish.
