Default Brown Was the Color of the Day

I decided to finally fish a "new to me" stream today. I have been planning and thinking about it for a long time. This particular stream is home to some big browns. Unfortunately, none of the really big ones made it onto my fly.

I hooked and lost a few shortly after I started, but I fished for an hour before I landed my first fish.

This guy nailed my dropper, I set the hook and he came off. I casted in again and he inhaled the dry, I got him that time.

Fishing on with a lot of strikes, hook ups, catching shiners and chubs, finally I picked up this small brown.

As I made it further upstream, the water was turning a little more "rainbowish". I picked up two before deciding to call it a day. The big one refused to have his picture taken, but he really was a pretty nice fish.

All and all, a decent day. I fished a dry/dropper all day, most catches and strikes were on the dry. I doubt I will fish this stream again, but at least I can scratch it off my list.
