Thread: North Branch surprise!

  1. #1

    Default North Branch surprise!

    Well I snuck up to the N Branch of the Ausable looking for some colored up fall brookies with the possibility of big one. We had sz. 22 olives coming of periodically, but no consistent risers. The weather was nice (75 sunny) and the brookies were uncharecteristically slow. I finally tied a Parachute Adams sz 16 on 5X with an 18" 6X dropper to a sz 22 brown beadhead caddis nymph. the second run I fished produced this guy. It's my biggest Brown (20") to date on Bamboo (7 1/2' 4 weight).

    Cool set of spots on the brown, congratulations Burk.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.
