Sneaky Tuesday (TR)

Post by LuckyBastard » Thu Nov 15, 2012 8:52 pm

[report]

I've had the last 3 weeks off work (Wedding/Honeymoon), and we've spent this past week relaxing at home. I snuck out on Tuesday. I decided to visit a Happy Little Stream that I haven't visited in 2 seasons, as we've had fuck all rain. This year has been better (slightly), so I thought I'd go see how the fish had coped. The Happy Brook:

Plan usually consists of hiking down to a little man made dam, then fish back up. There always used to be half a dozen in the dam:
Image

This time, there was only one:

I continued upstream, but something was wrong, there were no fish in the usual places. Every riffle and pool used to hold little 250mm fish eager to hit a dry...
Image

But the bigger pools still held a single large (for this stream) fish

Image

This usually did the job, except for the fish above, he required a Bugger, as the flow was too heavy for this little nymph:
Image

With the lack of fish numbers, I took ghey shots (though I'm not very good). Flowers all the way up the valley, Here's one:

[report]I continued to the dam I regularly visit. I decided on using a classy rod, that you'd have to pry from my cold, dead hands. This rod wins all fights (Prison Rules)

The conditions were good for a hatch. Cloudy, mild afternoons here mean Caddis:

During the hatch I brought shitloads of little bows like this to hand, and lost some very good fish:

Then a mudeye hatch started at dusk. Things got silly, and I must have landed another half dozen cookie cutter 'bows. Decided to call it a night on a rare Brown:

Back to Work Monday :smile

Those you did bring to hand looked healthy.

Three weeks off and a great day of fishing. On a Tuesday no less. Lucky bastard indeed.

Fine report.

Thank you.
