2020 First brookies!!!
Finally the first brookies of 2020 arrived.
After driving enjoying beautiful views, we had a good day of fly fishing shared with my friend Abel.
I saw that the stream still has little flow, it needs more rain to recover its full potential.
The brookies were difficult, many bites were failed and after a fly change the rewards arrived.
This time I used a 5 weight line with a 7 feet long leader in a seven feet bamboo rod originally designed for 4 weight line.
It performed perfectly giving me many advantages. I know it is a topic of discussion but in these small streams precision is fundamental and when the wind blows you realize how good it is to put a little more weight on your fly cast especially in short shots.
Abel did the same, loaded his delicate bamboo cane for 3 weight line with a 4 weight that I lent him not overloading it at all.
It is the one seen in the photos.
