I set aside a few hours today. My version of church.
We've had more than a few days of good weather. No. Great weather. (Except for Thursday. Fuck Thursday.)
J and I got skunked chuckin chickens and deer hides for muskie on Wednesday. My shoulder doth protest.
I needed to put down the 9 wt. and go to a small stream. A little brookie lovin.
Took the old '50 Sila-Flex to an old friend Big J's stream.

I caught a fish on the dreaded first cast.  b';
I was fucked. I knew it.
Chin up, positive attitude! :;!
I started late and temps were on the rise. I was hoping to see some dry fly activity, but I when I switched to that a couple times, I didn't get a wiff.
Double nymph rig with added split shot for deep pools was the ticket.
It was a little fish day. This stream has 12" brookies. Not today. 7" was top dog. Pune day.

That's sweet.

You got a pickup now or just another vehicle in your fleet?

I was wondering if Doug has been proselytized. Who cares about 12" fish as long as you can catch their younger siblings.

Pune days rock!
