Small Stream FFing (Never forget this centering experience)

Small stream fishing brings the kid out in me and lets my imagination run wild. My mind transports me to the early 19th century and I can see the settlers crossing the streams or the Abenaki tribes trekking through the woods and meadows with great old oaks and maple trees whispering about the history they have experienced.

It’s so easy to do when you have wild land surrounding you and no signs of civilization Very Happy

Pop on an elk hair caddis or golden stone dry and start picking pockets.

I have written before that I started my flyfishing with a Sears & Roebuck, Ted Williams rod and reel. My neighbor provided one fly, a tied down caddis. He and I fished a small Oregon stream, Silver Creek with cutt throat trout. It was a small stream, with cutts lurking beneath overhanging trees and near beaver damns. This was a wonderful lab to see the take, learn roll casting, make the side arm back casts, learn the pocket water. All this is transferable to big water. This is a great beginning for any ff’er or a respite from the intensity of big fish…big effort.
