> > The Beaverkill River

The Beaverkill is perhaps the most famous fly fishing stream in America, largely because of its history, and it can still be a good one if you don't let its history spoil your expectations.

Almost every pool has a name and a story or three in the great works of fly fishing literature.

I'm breaking my rule about naming locations for this picture, since the context adds much to its meaning.  This great blue heron is standing on a slab of river-worn concrete silhouetted against the NY Quickway bridge over the Beaverkill River at Cairn's Pool.  Several human fishermen pursue trout from one shore while an avian fisherman pursues them from the other. From the Beaverkill River in New York.

This mighty trout stream was reduced to a trickle during the terrible drought this August.  It ran crystal-clear and even though I could sight-fish to the trout they were beyond my skill to catch.  I did well to briefly hook just one nice fish. From the Beaverkill River in New York.

Oops.

I let my little light cahill spinner dangle in the air a bit too long while looking for rises.  There were at least 30 bats flying around the pool, and this one hooked itself on my fly.  I just let it fly around my rod tip and, while trying to figure out what to do, I took some pictures.  (When in doubt...)  Eventually it managed to unhook itself and fly away.
