A Brief Respite

As we near the end of another year, weekend fishing opportunities too appear to be coming to an end. This of course is unacceptable, which has forced me to become creative in fulfilling this often inexplicable addiction of mine. Lately, I have found myself sneaking out to the river at hours no rational man would think to start their day in the hopes of feeling determination, power, and grace at the end of my line. I escape in hopes of experiencing this and returning home just as my better half is awakening from her night's slumber. If all goes as planned, just as her day is starting, my day will have already been fulfilled. Today, was such as day.

Water temperature was a bone-chilling 38 C, yet fish seemed invigorated and charged. Acrobatics were the order of the morning.

Likewise, I can't wait until the fairweather fishermen are all snug in their beds.

I look forward to reading about the Dynamic Duo's next adventure
:-). The quality of the fish I've seen on your respective blogs are some of the best I've seen all year.

Thanks bcm,

We have been really blessed this fall with conditions an abundance of big wild fish. I just hope trotsky can rebound quickly from his wrist incident :o/ Dying to hit NY for another round of browns. Doing lots of reading about NY and there is pretty much a fishery there right thru to May on the Salmon river. Oh boy...

Trotsky, if there is a will to fish, there certainly is a way
;-) - I wish you a speedy recovery.

I just may have an opportunity to do a bit of WNY fishing myself very shortly - stay tuned.
