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.
Landscape & scenery photos from the Beaverkill River
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.
