Thread: Small Stream Ramblings

    Small Stream Ramblings

    Over the last few weeks I've been out and about the New England countryside fishing some very lovely small streams. Autumn is a grand time to be outdoors, the woods are ablaze with color, the air is crisp. The smells of the forest with everything from fir, pine, wild apple, and the damp earth combine to awaken your senses.

    The brook trout that inhabit the waters also put on an art show themselves. A show that rivals what nature paints in the forest. Their colors show they are getting ready to start another life cycle in this beautiful environment.

    I walk these streams a bit slower now, for these grand days of Autumn pass rapidly and I must save these sights in my minds journal.

    BrkTrt,
    Excellent phots and report.
    I see on your blog profile that one of your favorite books is "Brook Trout Forest" by Kathy Scott. It is a very fine book, and it's time for me to begin reading it a second time. Do you know the author? She lives right in your neighborhood (she's in Maine, you're in Conneticut).

    I have never had the pleasure to meet her.

    Kathy attends the Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area each spring where she, among other things, encourages us through facilitation of a writers' workshop. I am one of her many fans in the Upper Midwest, and I look forward to visiting with her every year.

    Check out Dr. Todd Larson's review of "Brook Trout Forest" here:

    Beautiful indeed.
    Those brookies seem to have copied their body color from the autumn trees.

    This was so very nice to see; yesterday an American conservationist stated on New Zealand Radio that the stocking of rainbow trout word wide was endangering native fish stocks. That the native American Cutthroat and Brook trout were almost if not extinct in their native range, he went on to say that even here in New Zealand the introduction of Brown and Rainbow trout was responsible for the extinction of our native grayling. This was a blatent misrepresentation of the truth as the grayling were caught in nets, dynamited etc by early settlers to be used as fetilizer to a point that there were not enough to survive.
    What is it that drives so called conservationists to misrepresent the total facts and truth of mankinds distructive acts and try to aportion blame?
    Let us have a forum discussion world wide on angler conservation issues here on "Smallstreams.com"
