    Thats why I like to park next to a devils club thicket where I meet my fishing partner & drive off in their rig to fish the day

    If I ever caught a 21 inch brookie from a small stream, I'd get a reproduction mount for sure. That has to be about as rare as a 30 pound steelhead or 90 pound Chinook.

    I pulled a sixteen inch brook out of the same plunge pool Monday:) I'm working on wrangling exclusive access to the ranch water across the road. It looks just like a spring creek, though it drains two lakes.

    I agree, very cool having that in your back yard. This is not something I can do on Whidbey Island!

    Enjoy!

    I just finished fishing for little redbands in Northern California, in Crystal Creek by Whiskeytown Lake. I love crystal clear little shaded streams in the mountains. Here's the smallest I caught, but he was beautiful. image.jpg
    My dad caught a 14 incher in a big pool, but didn't get the picture.

    That stream calls for a small bamboo or glass rod....

    I use a vintage Fenwick glass most of the time, sometimes a super soft St. Croix.
