Fishing today!

My son Russ and I fished a small mountain stream in Shenandoah National Park. We hiked in about 2 miles and then worked our way down through the woods to the stream.  We fished classic pocket water, my favorite type of fly fishing with small tumbling waterfalls, cascades and pools. The fly of the day was Walter Wiese's Clacka-Caddis, a killer fly in the Yellowstone Park area that seems to work very well here in SNP too. We caught some beautiful native brook trout and enjoyed the day together.....

Here are some photos:
