First time I've received the double middle-finger salute from VC trout since I took Func out fishing, but not catching, at the end of July.
Did get really good at hook setting leaves though.
Looking back at last year's post from almost the same day, I can't help but notice virtually the identical pattern...well, except for the fact that I lucked into one that day. The second weekend of November 2012, I'm sleeping in.
From a conditions standpoint, yesterday was pretty nice...water levels were a bit low, but other than that it was sunny with a few clouds...temps in the mid to upper 50s. Just warm enough that the spandex-clad female runners scampering along the creekside trails didn't need to cover up in too many layers. Not that I ever take my eyes off of my line in the water.
Yeah, it was a "surrounded by beautiful fall colors (albeit fishless) kind of day." Glass half empty or half full? I think upon packing it in I left feeling more like a Clif than a Howard.
