Birds & Trout Feeding…

An evening hatch of midges (chironomids) excited the feeding birds and trout (and the fly fishers)…

First light on the river…

“Have you ever seen the dawn? Not a dawn groggy with lack of sleep or hectic with mindless obligations and you about to rush off on an early adventure or business, but full of deep silence and absolute clarity of perception? Vera Nazarian

sleek beauty…

Enjoy thy stream, O harmless fish;
And when an angler for his dish,
Through gluttony’s vile sin,
Attempts, the wretch, to pull thee out,
God give thee strength, O gentle trout,
To pull the rascal in!
~John Wolcot~

the moment…the take

the moment-take-fly-leader-fish-SwittersB

the trout sees the fly, just submerged below the surface. The trout sips in the fly and a small boil appears on the water’s surface…the leader, tethered to the fly, jolts sending vibrations outward. All this is barely perceptible in ‘the moment’.

Speckled Beauty…

“Many go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.” 

Henry David Thoreau

Ah Henry, not so true. I purposely seek the beauty of the trout…I see the rest too.

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
