Hadn't been on a creek for too long so yesterday morning I headed off to one of my favorite wild trout creeks. It was slow at first, pretty cool too, but as the day warmed thing got more active. It was cool enough on the creek for frost and I saw my first ribbon frost of the year....I just love looking at this stuff...

This little parr marked trout ate the dropper [file]144585[/file] His bigger sibling decided on the Irristible [file]144587[/file] Nothing big but all wild as a March hare! They don't allow any mistakes or carelessness. Challanging, technical fishing. I ended up with 5-6 fish, missed more than that and lost 3-4 hookups. Beautiful morning on an equally beautiful Ozark spring fed creek in Gods wonderful creation. Now it's off to church to thank Him for that creation and the day.
