Opportunity knocks...


Ideal river conditions present themselves ever so seldom this time of the year and to miss an opportunity at a system when it comes into it's own is an injustice. Today I had the pleasure of fishing our little piece of heaven on the drop from it's second bump this week. Solitude, Emerald green water, long lean bullets, heart stopping aerials and even a tight chromer were the order of the day. Late Spring fishing can sometimes be outstanding and today was one of those outings. There was a presence on the river but once I exercised my legs I disappered into the back waters.
When I hiked out of the Shire the rain was falling hard. I can only imagine how she will fish Sunday morning...Hmmmmmmm perhaps...
I fished hard today and my aging body is constantly reminding me of that. No doubt a price for todays rewards.

A price I'll gladly pay again and again. We often take for granted the fishery we have here in the Great Lakes. Today was another reminder of just how fortunate we are.



Slideshow of the highlights enjoy...

Well done brother....

We had a good day fishing down low but I did find myself longing for the peace and solitude that you experienced.

Maybe Sunday?????

You catch some damn nice long torpedos in your neck of the woods. I wish we had more of those down here.

Nice job homo...wish I could've been there.
My day at work was like being in Hell.
I am pinning on Tuesday somewhere...
That will probably be my last shot before summer.
Sigh

LOL!!! thanks Joe. I have been doing the same for the past 48hrs.
It is a great picture. I think it is so great because I converted it to B&W. Some pictures come to life in black and white. I really like it. There is this one pic from back in late Nov or Dec of a clay bank shot through the trees on a fridgid day that stops me dead in my track when I see it. It is just outstanding. When viewed in colour it doesn't have the same affect.
Hey...thanks for the comments and thanks for enjoying it as much as I do. As you know this blog thing takes alot of work and I'm glad peeps get enjoyment from it.
