As in much of life everything has it's own inherent challenges. Why should a fishing trip be any different? Aside from trying to align the boys schedules Mother Nature certainly has to be contended with. This past weekend proved no different. The September fishery has always been a hit or miss scenerio for me. Going into this weekend I had no greater expectations other than a peaceful drift in the Hydes shared with friends and the beauty of the river. Although no epic fish came to hand Norland managed to boat a nice Eater Coho for the Weber. It was a brilliant surprise and delicious. They say laughter is medicinal and there certainly was no shortage on this adventure.
This trip marks the beginning of the 2012 Fall Fishing season for me. Although I do not expect to dive in head over heals I do expect the odd river encounter over the coming weeks. With the carnage the Salmon bring to the river banks I expect these encounters to be limited and brief but take note...when the later part of October rolls around and that familiar chill resides in the air it will be game on once again.
