One of the best brookies I've caught in one of my favourite small streams this fall. Had good luck catching small guys on dries and nymphs, but decided to put on a small muddler. Dropped it right in front of a underwater root tangle, and as soon as it hit the water, this guy came charging out of the depths. Not huge, but a trophy for this water.
Caught my first Brook trout! Me and my wife trekked a few miles to a preserved high mountain lake to find them. Well worth it and will be going back! Not a monster but it will be one of my most memorable, they are such pretty little guys.
