Yesterday, I posted a few photos by Phoebe Bean, which she shot yesterday during our glorious afternoon on a local mountain stream. (Her phone certainly takes better pictures than mine.) Although hers was an all-brookie affair, I was fishing downstream from where she was, and I actually got into quite a few brown trout.
It was very cool to be wet-wading on October 28th in Vermont, something I’ve never done before. I will say that the water was cold enough that my feet actually hurt. . .that is, until I couldn’t feel them any more. But it was a great way to say goodbye to my favorite pocketwater stretch for another year.
