Tenkara, October 30, 2014

All the leaves are gone and the willows are once again bare. The waters are low and clear and the water temperatures are again near 40 degrees. It is late autumn. Most of the fisherman have left the streams and the woods are getting ready for winter.

I fished for about an hour the other day. It was peaceful and productive. Although the water levels are low, they are still worth fishing. I was able to take cutthroats, browns and rainbows in my one hour.

Amazingly enough I look forward to winter. Some of my most enjoyable time in the water are in the dead of winter. The days are shortening but soon the sun will be heading north. I'm ready for it, I think. The older I get, the colder it feels. But I must keep pluggin' away.

Here's the video of this trip:
