This past week we had a few beautiful warm days and what is likely the last of our fall colors. The hickory was bright yellow, the sumac bright red and the oaks a deep roan. This monster male Brookie was wearing his fall colors, too, when he decided to take a well presented nymph. A quick photo later he was back in the stream, blending in perfectly with the rest of autumn’s display. Nature’s beauty, big fish and shirtsleeves in November…it doesn’t get any better than that!
