Wolf spiders

These spiders are all over the rocks where we fish. Most are the size of a nickle, but once in a while we get some big ones. This was about 3.5 inches across. About the diameters of a Pringles can or the palm of your hand.

The End of Summer

One of the signs summer is closing is the last of my daughter's and mine's monarchs. We find great joy in raising them each year and setting them free. It's one of the ways we like to help nature.

Nice day in the water.

Forgot to take the camera yesterday. Had a 5 lb northern slam the big orange fly with about two feet of line out. No wind, calm water. Good night.

This guy crashed a big orange streamer about ten minutes before dark.

It was an absolutely great night. No wind. No people. Had seven or eight fish crash the stramer as it moved down the bank. Only got the one in though.

Full moon.

New flies

No fishing tonight but at least I had time to epoxy and add eyes to last nighgts fare.

More of the usual for me.

Been working on a way to add a tail...this is not it.
