Ok… ok…. So it was an overly enthusiastic headline but I am excited! Why you ask? I was able to take an hour or so after work today and do a bit of fishing and the day was nothing short of beautiful. The sun was shining and the air was crisp with a nice fall breeze. Had I caught absolutely nothing I would have been content just to feel the water rushing past my legs. The cooperative carp and the eager smallie were just icing on my proverbial cake.
I always get mixed feelings as fall fishing sets in. On one hand I relish in the colors and feeling that comes with the turning of the season. On the other, I know that many of my favorite fish are a few short months away from virtual hibernation. Looks like I might need to consider becoming a trout guy after all….. Beats the heck out of watching my fly gear hibernate 😉
Good Luck and Tight Lines
