I was bummed to see that some cool pic's from a teeny stream I fished Saturday for some reason were not saved... that's just a factor of getting used to my new phone. it's nice, the camera seems nicer, but I'm working out the kinks.
Today I fished a small local stream at lunch. The fish were biting well, but, man... I was rusty, my hooks were dull, or I just had one of those days - I probably hooked 6-7 fish, some teeny (3"~) some pretty stout (8"+) which is nice for a stream that's quite small... But the picture god's laughed. The first fish I got in my hand, but trying to get the camera, he fell in the water and swam off. The next few I just missed. Then a nice one I was trying to get an "in the water" pic and he got off before I could do it. On the way back down stream many hit the micro bugger and all got off before I could get them to hand. Oh well - fun regardless.
Here's a few pic's I did get from recent outings or other fun times...
Will watering his mom's flowers. I was watering the new grass I planted and he LOVES the hose, so he wanted to do some watering as well. Good way to get back into being home after school!
Saw this today. The ring around that blue spot is a SHOE! This is in a spot that would not be fun to walk out barefoot - lots of thorns. Weird. But an interesting find for sure!
Took this pic after he "flipped off", but the first fish today, a spunky 6-8 incher I couldnt get a grip on to get a pic of, was living under that log. I took the pic after he swam off. He took the fly just in front of the green grass at left center. Like I said... it's a small stream :).
Best part - I got the solitude I wanted, and there were all kinds of people fishing the "stocked" water a quarter mile down in another stream, or in the reservoir down the way. Good deal - keep fishing those spots people :)
Biggest fish took in that slot of calm water in the right third of the pic, he got off before I could do the "in the water" photo. Oh well. Does that plunge SCREAM brookie or what?!
