All-n-all a nice way to end the week.
Good luck to all on the water as the leaves begin to change.

The Cane and Silk was perfect. Just quick enough to toss a light indicator/nymph rig, and a dream to cast with a Cortland 444 Peach DT4F line. The build?......flawless. What can I say? Mike Kattner is a joy to work with and builds a wonderful glass fly rod.
The takeaway from the day was a wonderful time fishing side-by-side with my daughter, punctuated but not defined by the single muddy-water trout that was brought to hand.

Fresh Figs from the last of the remaining on the tree.
Seems to be about 2 weeks earlier than normal?
Soon those brightly colored poppers on top will switch to streamers and nymphs.
While the bass were on a hiatus this morning, the water was filled with eager average-sized gills as if they knew as well, the coming change. An enjoyable morning, while in the back of my mind I tried to paint the picture to carry me through once the top-water seasons wraps itself up.
