|A sunny fall day on an Adirondack pond|
We set up a base camp on the shores of a pond we did not fish and then ventured out from there. Most of the fishing required paddling across a pond or two with a portages between the ponds of various lengths. We fished by trolling full sinking lines behind the ultralight canoes.

In the first pond, Jim caught a nice bunch of brook trout including the largest of the trip and I caught my first Adirondack pond brook trout trolling a hares ear winged wet fly

This small pond produced two impressive male Adirondack brook trout in their full spawning dress. The colors on these fish were amazing! Once we found where the fish were located we kept working the canoes through the area and usually hooked up on each pass.
|Look at those colors! and yes those are two different fish|
What a fantastic experience in a part of the Adirondacks that was new to me. Special thanks to Jim for taking me under his wing. It was great to spend some time taking with him around the camp fire, falling asleep to the call of loons, and seeing firsthand the spectacular brook trout the Adirondack ponds can produce.
