Default great day out

i finaly made it to the stream today after many many weeks of being to busy with work and got chance to fish the stream behind where i'm staying i had done a quick search a week or two ago of it and saw no signs of fish but wht i considered good holding pools , i got up this morning and decided i was going to fish the stream that has been taunting me since i got here so i quickly grabbed my kit and headed down the mile walk to the stream as i was setting up on the bank i noticed some fish taking flies of the surface and realised i forgot my floatant but decided i might just be able to get away with useing a adams without floatant if i was carefull and kept it dry (not easy lol ) , on my first cast i hooked the biggest tree around loseing my flie and my tippet so tied on a dark green adams and had no luck so moved up to the next pool where i noticed some movement and spotted a few tidlers again but had no luck and could see no sign of what they were takeing so carried on up stream and noticed a hatch of small caddis sadly i had nothing that matched exactly so tied on a modified adams i had tied and cast in to the pool and bingo straight away a nice 9 inch brown i quickly snapped a pic on my phone and let it on its way and after two more casts a got another brownie but only around 6 inchs and realesed him and left the pool for the next where i got 3 one after another all under 8 inch after thesse i moved on to another where the fish were more sluggish but managed to get one around 8 inch after this i decded that i would call it a day after all i had a great day out and got to experiance my first hatch and i will be definately heading back as soon as i get chance and will rember my floatant lol

Hi Vince,

Sounds like you may have a little wild trout stream to yourself there. Better stay mum eh? Where there are 8 & 9" fish there are 12 & 13" fish. Put that floatant in your kit and watch out for that tree next time out. Now you know what to tie up and what size, you better get busy.

Great report, thanks for sharing the pictures. I look forward to hearing more experiences in this new stream you've found. Sounds like with the right pattern you'll be busy...maybe even hook into Walter.
