Good People - Good Water - Good Fish

I had Vermont as my number one confidence to catch a trout during my Fly Fishing Road Trip Northeastern trip.  It was the hardest.  I fished five or six streams over six days without a fish.  I did not stay long at any of them, which was part of the problem.  I had researched the South Fork Roaring Branch, picking a spot not far from its source, the Green Mountain.

My wife gave me an hour and a half to fish.  It was a 25-minute drive, so I had about 40 minutes to catch a Vermont trout; otherwise, the opportunity would be a loss for another trip far into the future.

My research this time was perfect, exactly what I thought the creek would look like; pocket fishing with pools between boulders, my kind of fishing.   It did not take time to find the ideal spot, but getting around the stream was for a younger man.  Finally, I found a way; wearing my neoprene socks and wader boots made me more agile.  I was standing in cold water up to my knees, hiding behind a massive rock.  Throwing my 3wt with a Caddis fly and a Green Copper John dropper around the rock, I landed small Wild Brook Trout.
