Dan Flynn stalks brook trout in an undisclosed location.

Summer is here and for those of us in the southeast it’s time to beat it to the headwaters for a little Brookie fishing. If that’s your game, water falls like this one over a hundreds feet high are part of the program. No one is going to tell you where to find wild native brook trout. You’ll need a good topo map and some thick boot soles.

Just watch that last step. It’s a doozie.

    • Ralph,

      This shot was taken on an early spring day. I walked in in waders and wading boots bushwhacking most of the way. It was cold out so I was comfortable. It depends on the conditions. If I think or know that the walk in will be easy I’ll usually wear my wading boots. But if the walk is rough or particularly long, I’ll often wear hiking boots and pack my waders and wading boots. I’m usually pretty quick to wet wade each spring. A pair of dual purpose wading boots would be just the ticket.

      • Thanks for the reply Dan. I just ordered a pair of Simms Vapor hiking/wading boots that I saw on G & G earlier this year. They arrive tomorrow. I think they will be perfect when you and I hike to a couple of those small Brookie streams we have been talking about fishing together.
