I haven't been on a stream in a while. After a month of being a responsible adult and all the chores that involved, I needed a walk in the woods.

At least that.

Late Wed morning, I decided to throw some gear in the truck and head for the water.

72 degree air, 51 degree water.  Trees were about 3/4 done dropping leaves.

The leaf hatch was real.

I didn't pull the camera out much, and my pics suck, so there's that.

But I caught a dozen in a couple of hours.

Got the slam. Nothing of size.

They did not want the dry. The double nymph rig was the ticket.

ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

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

Everything was good till the selfie. V:;

There's more B.S. in fly fishing than there is in a Kansas feedlot.

Looks like a good day in the woods. Symphoricarpos for the win.
