There is a Brook Trout stream that I initially visited in my early teens that I hadn't been back to since. It's been on my bucket list for a long time to make a triumphant return and Friday would be that day.
While high noon on a sunny day isn't exactly the best time to begin a Brook Trout fishing outing a guy also has to sleep in once in a while. While I've backed down from about every other challenge that I have ever been presented with this day would be different. I was ready to take this creek head on. Literally head on because I started at the mouth where it empties into a much larger body of water.
My first major discovery was this dead creature. I couldn't decide if it was a baby Bowfin or a juvenile American Eel. All I really know is that it didn't taste too bad at all raw. I am going to have to find some more of those little guys.
It was like a scene from a movie. I forgot what movie it was a scene from but I'm sure it was a good one.
