Yeah, they are little. A tough tight stream. Sometimes size doesn't matter, though. I loves my little brookies.... around 20 today, all about the same size. My biggest one (Gasp!) about 6" slithered out of my hand before the hero shot. Henh.

The biggest run in the stream --

Scrambling on hands and knees.

Got busted by Fleming 13 on my hike back to the car. He was taking his kids back from the Helton's Dad's and Kids event, and saw me. Durn. Now he knows my little brookie honey hole. :(

Great pics! I'll keep this one close to the vest. I have a few of them that I try to keep secret but keep hearing other folks talk about them. 8-) I nearly caused an accident trying to back up on the Parkway when I realized it was Phil. :lol: Good to meet you! Phil, if you're not getting dirty crawling around you're not fishing right. :D Looked like you were fishing right today.

Were you in the van too Donnie? :D The look on his face was priceless though, right before I introduced myself. :lol:

I was almost back to my car after a great day. Sweaty and dirty. I get to my car, and this van stops dead on the Parkway, narrowly avoids an accident, puts it in reverse, and pulls off the road beside my car, and this guy hollers "Phil? Is that you?"
"Yes," I said with suspicion.
"I'm Jason Fleming. What are you doing?"
"Uhhh, fishing for brook trout," I replied.
His beady eyes immediately started to look at the trail down to the stream. Sheesh.

Good Lord. Busted. :shock:
