    Maybe this can breathe a little life into the place. This was just over a week ago, before the really cold air sank in and some snow flurries blew by. I had a hunch then, and am pretty sure now, this was the last of the Baetis hatch fishing for me until March or so. The fish had that feeling too, because they were pretty willing to eat a good drift, and weren’t letting many naturals go by untouched either. This is another reason why I love the late season. Just enough bugs to get the fish interested, but they take advantage somehow knowing it won’t be a bounty for long. One of my photos also brought to mind another subject, for another post. Maybe you can “catch” it?

    And, I’m all over the Keepemwet campaign when I take any pictures these days. If you haven’t seen it already, google Keepemwet and check out their website, philosophy, and approach to the whole idea. Its not critical, but makes very good points. Every time I’ve taken a photo this year, the simple little phrase Keepemwet has been on my mind, and it made for some pretty nice shots. Here’s a few from last week. There was still frost on the ground when I caught this first one.

    I think Creek might even like my fly selection! All I needed all day. The traditional just because I like traditional. The white post because it really works. The black post because its much easier to see in the “white” glare of a low-sun, overcast day. All were size 20’s.

    Those are some fantastic fish Lightline, and I also agree with Keepemwet. Great job! I do believe Creek would appreciate your choice of flies. And for what it’s worth, I do.



    What’s the old show biz saying – always leave ’em wanting more…I want more.

    Sitting by the woodstove and looking out at the snow, that was just what I needed this morning. Thank you so much for taking the time to post that. It gives a man hope.
