Small streams and Sunday afternoons

I love fishing a small stream on a Sunday afternoon.  I just enjoy the time to reflect after church on a Sunday morning.

I fished a few of my usual dries but they did not bringing up the brook trout I knew where there which left me a little puzzled.  I ended up putting on an ant and that changed things.  It seems a little early for ants but that what the fish were interested in this afternoon.

    1. Alan - yes things are nice and healthy there. This trip I started to see some of the larger fish and some are getting some nice color on them.

    Always be willing to try another pattern when things are slow and the trout aren't cooperating--I usually give a fly pattern 15 minutes to entice a take, if nothing happens change patterns. Thanks for sharing

    1. Thanks Bill - I usually don't change flies that much when fishing for brook trout. I've have thought that opportunistic fish aren't that selective but every now and then the right fly makes a difference!

  7. Mark you hit the nail on the head. Smals streams and Sundays just seem right.
