Hey! I went out and fished yesterday with Stephen Rose, and let me tell you what. It felt good!

 

It was a chilly, bright day with a slight breeze and very little evidence of piscine activity. But, whatever. It was fun casting flies again to moving water and watching everything drift downstream just so. And it is evident that the plants and animals in these wonderful creek valleys are all waiting on the edges of their seats (what?) for spring to pop. Let’s hope it will, eventually.

 

Below are some photographs from our outing. Enjoy!
