Stockies in a section of the Paulinskill River, New Jersey.
Stocked trout huddled together awaiting their slaughter on opening day, tomorrow, 8AM. I will not be attending.
A good laugh at Big Flat Brook in New Jersey yesterday. All members of Trout Unlimited, these guys waited for a truck that was 3 1/2 hours late to make sure a shipment of stockies made it into Blewett Track safely. If you see one of these men, thank them.
It was 65 yesterday. I hadn’t fished in quite awhile. I caught nothing, fell chest first into a muddy riverbank and had my fly rod come apart while casting… I’m not complaining though.

My kids used to ask why I stopped the car and looked over almost every bridge we crossed. Now they don’t say anything and when I get back in the car 30 seconds later they ask, “any fish?” I don’t travel with my flyrod anymore… two snapped tips in car windows does that. My camera though is always with me.
