Default Saturday 11/18 Browns, Bows, Brookies and a Beast

Headed north again today to try another NC dh stream. Thought about Fires but won out. It was 8:00 when the pavement turned to gravel and I was worried about getting a spot. Drove up to the middle of the section and hadn’t seen a car or fisherman yet, beginning to think I was at the wrong place. I was flying blind so I just picked a pull off at random. Got rigged up and was in the water right at 8:30. First cast was in the trees, lost both flys and the tippet. Tied on one of Prowlers candy corn mops below a green inch worm.

A couple of bows got the day started.
The mop bite slowed so a few fly changes later the brookie parade started


About 9:30 the Browns decided to eat

Picked up a couple of doubles

A couple of fish started rising so I tied on a dry and caught 4 or 5.
Took a break at 10:30
Got a nice surprise when I got back in the water

The bite slowed down a little bit so I went back to the candy corn mop and promptly started catching fish again.
A whole bunch of fish were caught. Several were pretty nice size including an 18” brookie that came on double that somehow I didn’t get a picture of and this guy measured a little over 20”

No bears or hunters, it was strange going to a DH stream on a Saturday in November and having it to myself.
