Silly title for a blog entry however, that was the recurring word my ears picked up as I wandered around the Farmington in the wee hours of the morning. I could just feel every other thought leaving my consciousness and the focus really turned to fishing and the surroundings of another unusually warm morning. I've been hearing how hot the fishing has been lately and I wasn't disappointed as it took me all of 11 minutes to get a March brown trout under my belt.
a healthy Farmington Brown
Will my goal of landing a brown trout from the Farmington each month this year intact, I continued moving around a stretch of water that alternates slower pools and faster riffles. The browns came from the slow water on tiny, and I mean tiny, BHPT nymphs. I was able to land a few Rainbows that were none to happy to have been fooled by a large cased caddis nymph. There were 2, in particular, that I was pleased to net as both jumped numerous times and, in the past, I've tended to lose bows that jumped 4 or more times.

Overall, a bunch of fish to net, no one to be found on the river that early and a great start to the day. I also had my first opportunity to test out the new Canon Powershot D10 and let's just say the jury is still out on that one. Here are a couple more images taken underneath the surface - a full review will be coming over the next week or so as I would like to get out a couple more times before I pass my humble judgment on this camera.
