Crystal clear water, beautiful scenery, and solitude, what more could a flyfisherman ask for. Northern New Hampshire is blessed with a multitude of wonderful small streams that hold good numbers of brookies and rainbows. You could easily spend a lifetime exploring all of these little jems of the northwoods. I have been at it most of my life and have only gotten to know a few of them really well. Chances are that you live in an area that has smaller streams that go mostly untouched by a lot of flyfishers, give them a try and you might be pleasantly surprized. Its a good idea to travel light when working your way along these rugged little waterways and usually all you need is a few well chosen patterns to cover your needs for a happy day spent fishing. Here is a small selection of flies that have worked well for me. This is a combination of 20 flies.
