Yellowstone National Park... Brook Trout tune-up
Michelle and I hit a small brook trout stream in YNP today. Michelle hasn't fly fished since our trip out here in 2011 so this was a good first outing for her to "practice" on some willing brookies. It's like riding a bike for her and she was back in form in no time.
|Great pocket water fishing with lots of wild brook trout.|
|tough to beat the beauty of a brook trout...|
|Michelle with one of many on the day.|

|We only used two flies today, a Coachman Trude and a Wiese's Clacka Caddis.|
|Today I used my Ben Turpin custom G-series fly rod. |
I thought it was an appropriate choice with the Turpin's hand painted brook trout on the rod.
