Chasing little brownies
 
Last week I went fishing twice and decided to fish the upper sections of the two streams where I spent innumerable hours for years(Orb and Lergue) ...they’re still beautiful and very interesting to cast flies .I specially love the Lergue,I have memories there behind every rock ….this section is very technical unfortunately the density of fish…is but the shadow of its former self…same with hatches.Anyway I could catch some wonderful little brownies on dry (jpb olive & dace’s delight)and enjoyed the scenery.I used my new Streamflex 10’( not a 6’ or 7’ Ard) and really like it( I should post a review when I finish all my tests)

Beautiful pics JP. I love chasing little wild brownies too. Looks like some really tight quarters between the bushes there. Tough casting.

The beautiful scenery and nature of those streams offset the low density of the fish by leaps and bounds! What a neat place to fish and make memories!:cool:

JP: Both of those streams are really beautiful! Don't let Allan see that water, he might want to move into your spare bedroom! LOL!
