Gander & Goose

GEESE

A back bay, shallow and weedy, that each year I traditionally visit. Because once, long ago, I caught some large trout on a dry damsel fly pattern in this shallow back bay. Stealth and patience resulted in explosive takes to the dry fly. Then, large V wakes as I released the trout and watched them swim away was equally impressive. Up in this same area, over the years, have been geese…usually the mature adults and always four or five goslings…is that a gaggle? This year, there was the couple but no goslings. Perhaps the young ones already flew off? I know so little about the group migratory habits of geese.  Goose, gander, geese, gaggle, gosh….

Gathering Gaggle of Geese (A Photo)

The term goose applies to the female in particular while gander applies to the male in particular. Young birds before fledging are called goslings. The collective noun for group of geese on the ground is a gaggle; when in flight, they are called a skein, a team or a wedge; when flying close together, they are called a plump. Wiki

I was hunkered down into a strategic presentation, lost in contemplation of the take. Out of the corner of my eye, some 20 feet to my left this flotilla quietly cruised by. I set my rod down to snap the pic. The fly line jolted outward, momentarily went taut and then slack. I only ‘caught’ the shot of the birds.
