Made my way to my favorite brookie hole on Saturday. The wind was atrocious. Luckily I decided to carry my spinn outfit with me because the 2wt wasn't gonna happen. I had an OK time casting until the wind started gusting in different directions. So, hucking metal became the name of the game.
Landed 4 healthy males and 2 females. Fish ranged from 6-10". All were VERY feisty and healthy. Oddly enough, most of them struck during micro-bursts (wind) in about 2-5 FOW.
All taken on a Thomas Cyclone: Red n' gold, save for one on a Panther: Brown Trout, size 6. They wouldn't take anything else.
All released.









This lil' guy caught my eye whilst I was having a beer and eating my lunch.



Get at 'em, folks! Tight lines. O0

Yessir! He looks like a grasshopper but the head looks weird.
