The Special Ed proved without a doubt that it was highly effective at fooling Salmo Trutta; otherwise known as Brown Trout. The question that lingered in my head was, "Would it be equally deadly on Oncorhynchus Mykiss and Salvelinus Fontinalis. For those of you who didn't study Latin for three years I am talking about Rainbow Trout and Brook Trout.
Brown Trout, Brook Trout and Rainbow Trout are the three major trout species present in the Driftless Area.
Time was of the essence so on Sunday morning so I set out to do a little R & D. I started out at a place that I like to call Glass Creek. The water is as clear as glass. If the Special Ed can fool trout here it can fool trout anywhere.
Three casts later and bam! a Brookie. One down and one to go.
My worry was replaced with joy but there was still work to be done.
Not being one to waste time when there is work to be done I soon had in my hands what looked to be a Rainbow Trout. Damn I'm good.
I started this blog not only to entertain and inspire but to also inform. After photographing this flower on the forest floor my goal became to educate my readers on what type of flower this is. I spent fifteen minutes Googling last night and I have come to the conclusion that I have discovered a totally new species of flower. Since I discovered it on Mother's Day I have decided to name it after my mother. I hereby declare this flower to be the Debbie Sue.
After conquering trout it was time for the Special Ed to begin it's quest to annihilate every warm water species present in the lower 48. I figured the best species to start on would be Rock Bass. Mission Accomplished!
The rest of the day was spent exploring new places. I never even knew this place existed before Sunday. Cool things happen when you venture off the main road.
