Stone Mountain Brookies
Just a brief thanks to my buddies Loki and JB3, along with Bear the Wonder Dog, for allowing me to tag along on their quickie trip to Stone Mountain. I've heard of the place as long as I've been fly fishing, but had never been there. I caught a handful of brookies on, of all things, a white woolly bugger, after everything else had failed. Someday I'll learn to fish a nymph properly.
And since I can't fish worth a hoot, I'll just have to enjoy the view. The old cliche that trout don't live in ugly places still holds true. It was a beautiful setting on a surprisingly hot spring day. A fine way to while away a couple of hours.
Mmmmmmm..... Nutty Buddies. Or did they really mean Nutty Buddy Trout Fishing Maps? One would certainly be useful with some of my fishin' friends.
