Here are our random thoughts from past fall seasons: Large soft hackles. Fingerless gloves and hand warmers. Frost in the a.m. How many geese in that V? Baetis!! Slate Drakes!!! 2X. Thermoses of coffee, soup and chili. Orange and Partridge size 14. The favorite 4wt. Streamer chucking float trips. They're on midges. Brown trout colors. Small stream forays. Moose in perfect condition. Jumping salmon. The full flask. Soft shells and puff balls. Snow! Fall micro brews. Swinging with the spey. Watching the light through the foliage. 3:00 a.m. starts. Midday espresso and cigar breaks. Attractor nymphs. Floats with friends. Woodcock. Those pre spawn brookie colors. The long drives home.
It's here. Go get some.
