My rig was simple; a strike indicator off of which came about two or three feet of 7x tippet. At the end of that was a #14 caddis pattern, again my design, and off of that about 6in of 7x tippet tied to my newest caddis design.
It's a good feeling when you see a trout like this with your fly in it's mouth.
After a successful release, he went right back to his feeding lane.
This wild brookie really did give quite the fight!
Some days I get nothing in the feeder stream, but sometimes, it saves the day.
