Alright never left the water and I still got my rod pic...happy? Brown #2
Out of the water for like 5 seconds MS :P - always my personal trophy, the Paradise Springs Brookie. Took off like a bat out of hell the second he touched water again!

So what do you do when you've really sleep-deprived yourself and then slept all day, only to stay up LATE and then get up at a normal time? You go fishing!

But where? Nothing is going on in the local Tribs. Bart was up with Jacek at Manitowoc, Sheboygan, Kewaunee etc. My two "houseguests" for the week were still asleep at noon! I needed to go fishing....I'm not waiting any longer.

So the "where" was answered with Paradise Springs. Gotta test the skills on some whily trout! Turned out I wasn't the only one who had that idea today...2 other anglers came and went while I was there, neither turned anything!

But all the same a good day. Casting under the overhanging trees is always a good idea and I got two nice browns that way...just cast to the sipping feeders. Only problem is that you lose about a dozen flies each day with all that you tree. Totally burned through a leader today as well!

However, the brookie was a bit of a surprise...I've watched these two brookies pal-around the pond all summer...always swimming together, and always smart. Well, for some reason today, one got stupid and took a Griffith's on the surface. Best part? The FIRST ONE took a pass on the fly...#2 is obviously the "dumber" in their pair. Great Psprings brookie coloration as always!

And all of that trout fishin' was in only 2 hours! :) Alright, so you guys know the drill. I'm off the computer until next week; I have 7 days of local fishing to look forward to. Canada reports from earlier this month will come AFTER the forthcoming 7-day. So be patient and fish if you can!
