Derrick had contacted me a few weeks back to see if I would chase down some Brookies with him, and yesterday we finally got a chance to hit the water. Derrick had his third child (has 3 under 3) last week and I'm surprised he was even able to make it out. We got a bit of a late start, but met and made it to the river and rigged up for the day.

Derrick landed the first fish of the day

A decent rainbow with a lousy photographer

I was missing fish left and right but finally managed a few nice ones. What I was missing in quantity, I was making up in quality

It was great to see lots of yellow stoneflies everywhere. Time to switch to the yellow neversink

Here is Derrick working a nice pool.
