Hurricane Earl decided to pass us by for the most part, but did leave behind some fall temperatures in the low 70’s and gusting winds.
I took the opportunity to get out this morning on the Farmington and hit a local spot that is loaded with rainbows and browns. After an hour of tossing spinners, BWOs and caddis with no luck to an area of rising fish, I tied on a prince nymph and landed this 12″ rainbow on the first cast.
Notice the depth of color. I don’t know if it is the time of year or the age of the fish, but the sides were a bright purple as opposed to the usual pink. A really pretty fish. Sorry to say it was the only one for today. Enjoy!
