Today's quiet spot

This is where I went fly fishing today.   Pretty and peaceful.    I could see the fish and they could see me, but none of them asked for my phone number.

I see the leaves are starting to turn!

What a beautiful place to wait for a bite....

:-) that´s funny. What kind of fish do get around there? If you get a chance to grow your own potatoes, you´d be completely self-supplied :-)

Yes, Mrs. Farmer, the leaves are turning -- one of the trees on my street is bright orange already! I love the autumn, but it's happening too soon!

The stream really is beautiful, LBSC. I wish you lived nearby and we could go fishing together! This particular stream has smallmouth bass, I think, Spindlemaker, although you can't prove it by me! The get quite large in the nearby lake -- 4 to 6 pounds -- but are pretty small in the streams; I suspect a fish over a pound would be a whopper. Other, colder, streams near me have trout, and there are catfish and carp and panfish in most rivers. I did grow potatoes this year, about as successfully as my fishing adventure -- the key words being "few" and "small"! If I counted on my own skill to feed myself, I would finally be thin again!

So pretty and so relaxing. Kind of like my deck. I'll be glad when it's cool enough to enjoy it again.

Fishing sounds lovely except for the fish. ;-)
I'm off for my first lawn bowling class today, wish me good luck.

gpc said...

LOL, Cat- I am just as happy when the fish don't bite because I am always worried I won't be able to release them without trauma (to both of us)! Lawn bowling, how fun!

Sno, don't stand in the middle of YOUR local streams, though!

My user name on many web pages is flyfishertoo. After my photography I find fly fishing to be the most relaxing thing to do. It takes me away from the daily stresses of life. If you don't mind, what is the name of the stream?

Hi Don, it's a little bit of the Pine River, which winds all around here but is faster, deeper and wider in most places. This bit is near Porter, Michigan.
