It was one of those Epic afternoons on the water yesterday. Slightly stained but clearing water combined with cooler temps and cloudy skies proved to be the key ingredients for success. With Fall approaching and the pre-spawn / spawn period getting closer the big guys are starting to move and feed aggressively. I was throwing my hand-tied Wooly Bugger / Streamer patterns and landed well over 20 Browns, including this big male. I love this time of year in the Driftless Area of Minnesota - waterfowl hunting and catching large Browns on the fly!

Unless one can enjoy himself fishing with the fly, even when his efforts are unrewarded, he loses much real pleasure. More than half the intense enjoyment of fly-fishing is derived from the beautiful surroundings, the satisfaction felt from being in the open air, the new lease of life secured thereby, and the many, many pleasant recollections of all one has seen, heard and done."

I was out with a friend today and we had a good day. Cooler weather and stained water are perfect for streamers. Sorry Brian, I high jacked your post.

Nice fish on both accounts!

Not only are those bruisers, but they look really healthy; a sign of a good ecosystem. I see what HookJaw said in the Trapfest post about the streamside plants being washed away.
