Friday Goldbrick 927 - Hoppers

 . . . . . . .You Tubes. . . . . . . .

Walden:
It is a soothing employment, on one of those fine days in the fall when all the warmth of the sun is fully appreciated, to sit on a stump on such a height as this, overlooking the pond, and study the dimpling circles which are incessantly inscribed on its otherwise invisible surface amid the reflected skies and trees.

-Henry David Thoreau





. . . . . . . . Fly . . . . . . . .




The best grasshopper fly pattern for trout?  Well that's a tough one, but all of the new foam patterns sure have my attention.
