Had to get out after the rain and to give the Spot Gen 4 a trial. Streams were still juicy from all that rain. Fall colors are and warm weather have made getting out really spectacular. Went to a place I had not been to in 25 years. With the water rushing through the narrow slots wading was a bid dicey. I sort of wished that I had taken my wading staff with me and I had actually planned to but got distracted and left it behind...

I gave my new  Simms Flyweight Wet Wading Shoe a try out. Wore a pair of neoprene booties with them and found them to be quite comfortable and gave good traction on the rocks and hiking on the trail as well.

They come it both rubber and felt sole, I opted for the felt.

Hopper dropper for the rig. With the river up but still clear most of the fish were hanging out on the bank or under rocks. Caught enough to make it a worthwhile trip.

Stepping into the creek the canopy of trees illuminated by the sun made this an interesting shop. I kept looking at this type of scene and took many many photos

Another creek crossing and the splendor of moving water and fall colors. Wild water abies.

There was enough rain over the past several days to qualify as a frog strangler. I offer exhibit A!

Up above the creek looking to the west as the trail skirts around the gorge.

I'll give this pool a try! There used to be a large tree down across this pool protecting it from angling attempts.

Loved this fungus color contrast.

ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!
me -There's a season?

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!

This made me really want to get out into the woods and fish.

I was born by the river in a little tent, And just like the river I've been running ever since, It's been a long, long time coming, But I know change is gonna come.

Man this makes me want to get out this month before all the leaves fall.  I LOVE fall in the mountains.  You can't beat it.

Everytime I scroll through the pics, I feel a bit uplifted, but a little sad for being to busy to indulge.
