Man, Oh man is it getting hot in these here hills.
It's swept over us with such a heavy, humid force that it's hard to escape.
I hate to think what July and August will be like.
Yesterday, Jacob and I decided to let out beloved wild streams go until the weekend and try some bigger water with big ole hoppers.
To say that I'm stubborn is the understatement of the century and I'm mostly ok with it. Very soon into the trip I determined that if a larger hopper could catch fish then so could a very large Royal Wulff.
I mean who doesn't like strawberry shortcake, am I right?
Possibly not right...
But, I was determined and I had confidence in this fly and I was sure that it was going to attract something.
Thank god for brook trout, even stocked ones.
