Spur of The Moment Trip Report

I was showered and shaved and heading out the door and my three rods were leaning against the door jam.  I took them out yesterday so I could go to the apple festival. 

 I quickly did a weather check and it showed rain all night tonight.  I told myself I was just going to do a stream clarity check and head to the apple fest again.  I grabbed the rods and put them in the car.

My favorite big stream was dirty and high 2 days ago when I checked it.  It was still high but was fishable.  I thought with all the rain coming it might be blown out for rest of season.  I was going to fish only a little and head to apple fest.

Two hours later and all muddy and wet I went back home and showered and put on clean dry clothing.

Sixteen browns to hand.  One decent one.

My First Tiger Trout

I caught it in 1985 in a small stream in Crawford County along with 76 other trout that day.  I did not know what a tiger trout was.  I took a couple photos and set her free.  Since then the brook trout have disappeared from that stream along with my tiger.

This is the exact pool I caught her in.

What It's All About

I take scads of photos of folks I fish with.  They also snap a few of me while I am out there.  Traditionally I look back on seasons past yearly and reminisce.  I relive the moments through the years.  It is kind of a "Greatest Hits" journey.

Please take the trip with me.

Thanks for coming along for the ride.  There are many miles left to go.

Farmer Sam

Guinea Chicks.

Sam says he typically removes the chicks from their mother's shortly after hatching because the hen's are not from this climate and the offspring typically die if any cold weather is in forecast.  Friday morning the low will be 34.  The seven chicks are now under a heat lamp in an enclosure Sam has designed.  Food and water supplied.

Stopped by at my friend Sam's Gentleman's Farm.

Since my last visit he added sheep and a Great Pyrenees Guard Dog. 

Same County Different Waterway

Unique markings.
