Does it get any better?
Yesterday 10 am..... I leave work(bonus) , by 12:00pm I am fishing. One after another I hook fish and they seem to just get better. Then it stops, not a nudge nor a nibble....What happened? Blue Winged Olive hatch started coming off and all underwater feeding ceases! I switch over to a #22 BWO and it's on! First drift I hook a brown that goes easily 16" and as the fishing tales go as I was getting ready to take pics he got a lil camera shy and said "SEE YA'".... BWO hatch stops and its back to small midges in dark colors, fish on, fish on and so it went. I fished for about 6 hrs and it was a blast, the first real hint of fall is here and the north wind relaxes my soul, that Fall smell that all but mesmerizes the senses and instills a feeling of euphoria. I am out of work early, I'm fishing and God has given me this day as a gift like he has to all of you. As I sit here this morning with a cup of coffee and the sound of the wind outside of my office window, I revel in the fact that I am a fisherman and I enjoy the gifts that are given to me albeit not always noticed or acknowledged, I understand that they are always there for all of us and if we look and listen we can enjoy.
