aeration of water….

This lovely spillway aerates the spilling water from one pond to another providing oxygen to the cruising fish in the holding ponds.

Below, another spillway adds additional aeration to an adjacent holding pond for the large brood, rainbow trout.

Fishing: Recycling your waders….

Saw this idea at Deneki Outdoors & Epic Angling where one takes your leaking (can’t salvage them) boot foot/stocking foot waders and cut off the neoprene boots. Now you have an industrial strength set of rain pants/bibs that while worn with rubber boots will out do any typical pair of bibs. Great idea. I have an old pair of Simms Guides that will soon fall into this category.

perspectives…

A tree leaning out over the river. Colors, angles, light and the sense of a river’s movement. For the most part, we all can look at the image and perhaps say, to ourselves, that it is pleasing in some way. To the fisher, a more analytical mindset ensues that rapidly dissects the image.

The fisher, be it gear or fly, sees color for clarity, structure and currents, seams and holding water for trout, steelhead or salmon…each slightly different depending upon the flow and structures.

Pockets, slots, buckets, pools, tailouts, lies and routes are coupled with probabilities and chance. Raise the river or lower the river and the calculations are altered. What to use to entice a take, the presentation of fly, lure or bait all are measured against these observations that are made in mere moments.

Like a designer, builder, surgeon or mechanic the vision and understanding of the parts make the whole.

Of course, we could just say “That’s a beautiful picture”.
