Fall Brookies

Following last week’s heavy rains I finally had the chance to get out to the Rapidan River this weekend to do some fall fly fishing. Together with the rain, the temperature has dropped off enough to allow for a trip into the mountains.

The water was high, it was great to see the river full after a dry summer. Made for some tough dry fly fishing, caught all trout that day on nymphs.

Many more days of fall fishing to come.

Nice box. Wheatleys are so classic. I’m with you, fall = brook trout, nothing more, nothing less.

Thanks Jedd, yeah I got it at a flea market a few weeks back. I had wanted one for sometime when I found it. And yes, Fall time definitely = brook trout fishing.

Nice brookies. I’ve been trying to get out to the mountains soon myself… probably Ramsey’s Draft.
