Happy Thanksgiving everyone. We hope you all enjoy this time with family and friends, and that we spend some of the time thinking about the thing we should be thankful for.
Don’t forget,  the very people you’re breaking bread with and giving thanks with this weekend , are the very people you’ll have to be gifting or receiving gifts from in another month.  Stream and Brook fly fishing guides have gift certificates for all of our services, and they are the perfect gift to give to your favorite fly fisher person. They are also something you should put on your own Santa’s list.  Over the years, the people who have cashed in on the gift certificate they received, mention that it was best gift they received or most thoughtful.
Well everyone must be hunting. We haven’t had any clients and I haven’t received any river reports from the guides. If your still getting out you should wear something bright to let hunters know you’re not a deer as you cross the water. Also, you’ve probably had the river to yourself and decent fishing.  Until the recent cold and snow we’ve had great weather, flows and water temp for fishing in November. We had great weather all last winter as well, but the strategies and methods for catching winter trout are basically the same. Streamers, nymphs and egg patterns fish slow and natural. The size of the fly doesn’t matter much, it’s the slow and natural part that is important. Dead drifts right to their nose are best.
