Got out for an afternoon adventure on saturday and went in search of fishable water. So i hit a stream that I felt confident would be wadable. The water was a little bit higher than I expected, but nothing too difficult.

After hiking in a good ways, I dropped off the trail into the creek.

I quickly picked up this Brookie

Shortly after I got this one:

In case you haven't noticed so far, it was a pink weenie day

As the afternoon went on, it was all brookies

You slammed them again.:biggrin: Looks like a good day. The water looked a little higher than I would have expected. I may be just so used to the low water we've had since I've started fly fishing:rolleyes:

Thanks for posting

Great post and nice Slam! Just curious, with the water higher, how were you fishing the pink weenie? Dry/dropper? Did you have to add any weight to get it down?
Thanks

I was fishing it under a yellow neversink. Nope I don't ever use any weight on them anymore. I just let the current do its thing
