Well work has a been a real bummer lately and I needed a day on the water.
Morin and I decided to force the issue on our Huron Tribs.
The home river is showing signs but needs another couple of splashes before it starts to really become home again. It was a no go today and will be until some more rainfall.
On a whim we decided to branch out a bit and fish some water neither of us had ever explored on a river neither of us are very fond of.
We've always a had great success when we leave our comfort zone and today was no exception.
Sunday...low water..early on in the season and no previous experience had me raising very little in terms of expectations.
The surprise in store for us was nothing short of surreal.
No pressure..beautiful weather..nice water feet away from where we parked and a bunch of hot October fish help to us usher in the Fall Steelhead Season ...and more importantly for me ..to help me leave works bullshit behind me and realize once again what is really important.
Beautiful colours out there today...just beautiful.
Healthy strong fish ...success on new water to be filed away as one of our plan B options when things get stale.
It is amazing just how far up those fish will go in a very short period of time...even with what little water we've had fall on us.
Lots of jumps and even the small fish fought like stink.
Good on em..
If we get some rain this week like the weather man is calling for I may just have to kick er into high gear.
Good call Morin..and thx for the fish and chips...you POS...and the roe...and the BBQ advice..and the splitshot...bla bla fucking bla...why do hang out with me again??
