|On the drive in|
|Streams you can't see|
|Gearing up, my sugegasa from Isaac Tait, my kebari from Todoroki Toshiro|
|The Brown trout of Brookville|
|Cow pie with mushrooms|
|Drop the gear and celebrate|
|Snow Peak titanium sake set getting a workout|
|Lower Brookville, no restrictions|
|Zerosum 4.5m business|
|Upper Brookville is on Tribal land with restricted access unless you are with a Tribal member as a guest|
|Resident Brook Trout|
|The resident trout are known to take flight|
|Working a 4.5m rod|
|All good things must come to an end, on the way home|
That meadow looks like an awesome place to visit with a friend. Long rod, long line, frisky fish. Worth every minute of the drive I'm certain.ReplyDelete
It’s 20 years now that I’ve been visiting this place.Delete
It’s on sacred Apache land.
Non-tribal members can not access the upper Headwaters.
But we had a friend take us up here.
So many firsts have been in this valley...
But there is water here like this that you are welcome to join me or I’ll point you to.
From Phoenix, where I live, 230 miles one way. 20 plus years of mostly up and back in a day, a long day but totally worth it.
