Lately, it was difficult for me to have an entire day to myself as many events I couldn't come up with excuses were scheduled on my precious weekends. But today, I had the whole day to myself and before I know it, I was standing in a creek, smiling ear to ear with my fly rod in hand.
Although the temperature reached to mid 70s today, the water felt cold. Perfect day to be angling.
I can't believe this place was lined with thick snow not so long ago. Patches of wild flowers were screaming with their bright colors to be noticed.
To top it all off, my first catch was a tiger trout. It didn't hesitate to take my awkwardly drifting fly. Must been hungry...
This is why I visit this particular creek as it contains many healthy and colorful brookies like this one.
Healthy browns were added to the mix. All trout were caught with the Ausable bomber pattern. I guess they still prefer deep pool over shallow runs as the most of trout were caught in deeper water.
I definitely had my fix today and looking forward to many mores to come.
