Default Brother bachelor party 6-14-07

Since my brother isn't into strippers or alcohol, I took him trout fishing before his wedding. We started at a stream that apparently held brookies, but only managed to lose the few that took his spinner and my flies. at about 11am, we moved to a stocked stream and hit the jackpot, which is nice because he hasn't caught a trout since he was about 10. His first was this pretty little stocked fish

That fish did his dance, and with my slow shutter speed, I got this pic

As we walked down the stream, we ran out of stockers and started catching nice 10" fish of the wild variety. I got this pretty bow out of a nice looking run, sorry about the photo quality, I was shaking a bit.

And then rob caught his first wild bow out of the same run.
We caught about a half dozen apiece, and decided to call it a day. I don't like to call it a day until the sun goes down, so i convinced him to hit another stream that i was convinced had wild trout, and I managed this little guy after fighting the rhododendron and white pine.

I also ran into some little fish that I couldn't catch, but they appeared to have a red stripe down the side of their bodies, like a rooster redbreast would, only much more red than orange. they topped out at about 2 inches, and none could quite eat my #10 wooly bugger. Any ideas what they might have been from you wild stream people?

All in all, the bachelor party was a huge success, and much fun was had, and no one threw up, which is how it should be.

nice report
looking at those pictures, the rosyside dace and the tennessee shiner looked to be the closest to what I saw, but do they live in the nottely river system?
