Thanksgiving Eve

Found myself on the upper Letort  and fished Thanksgiving Eve for the last hour of daylight.  The weather was very nice and a steady midge hatch brought at least one unsuspecting brown trout to the surface.  One was enough…I tied on a small light Cahill, clipped the wings a little, and dropped it in front of the rising fish.

Bam! There was no slurping involved.  That native brown took my fly and proceeded to jump clear out of the gin-clear stream, not once, not twice, but three times!

Landed it, took this photo, and released it for another day.

Any day you can catch a fish on the Letort is a good day…late November makes it even better!
