Pennsylvania is blessed with mountain streams that harbor our state fish, the brook trout. As the fall spawn approaches, brook trout adorn themselves in briliiant colors. This brook trout is about to latch onto a Gold-Ribbed Hare's Ear Nymph. Prints are available at, or call 570-437-2928. Cover painting by Ken Hunter.
