"Another Small One" – Labrador Brookies

In the New York Times, Adam Clymer recuperates from difficult salmon fishing (903 casts before a hookup) with big, eager brook trout in the headwaters of the Miramichi. “For the next two and a quarter hours— until dark — it was the most action I have ever had on a stream. The brook trout is never a hard fish to fool (Bill insisted fisheries science had shown they were even dumber than cutthroats), but the shortage of real food made easy marks of this bunch. I fished all evening with barbless-hooked Bombers, a dry fly used for salmon, tied with what looked like bunches of stiff pompoms at head and tail.”
