    Trout Fishing Day Hike

    Decided last night to take today off and head up to the North Georgia Mountains solo for a little trout fishing day hike... Not a gear test, just a nice little day out... Took a few pictures, mostly of the fish ;-)... Was a good day on one of my favorite back country streams... landed 2 nice browns, and a little wild bow... Hiked and fished about 4 miles of stream total... Found several nice spots to hang on my upcoming October trip...

    It was a very fun trip... Wish I could do it more often... I was fishing in an unknown named tributary stream of the Upper Toccoa River in North GA... As far as coordinates 3614′31″N 11649′33″W....

    Very nice, Looks like the Mini Hopper got at least one of them. Love that little fly. Great looking fish and water.
