memories at sunset…

Sunrises and sunsets coupled with memorable moments seem to adhere to the old memory walls. The combination of light, temperature, calm and company….

October frenzy…

Rainbow Trout-fly fishing-net-fly-SwittersB

Oregon trout caught/released. Fly pattern: Callibaetis emerger

Cooler temps, and an all day feeding frenzy yielded many encounters with dining Rainbow Trout on an Oregon lake. The day started with Midges (Chironomids) and they kept coming off from early morning until a lull around 5PM. An emergence of the Callibaetis mayfly and a spinner fall added additional action just below the surface with large swirls and porpoising rises. Caddis fluttered about and there was the additional (rarely seen by me) Waterboatmen emerging and later splatting back through the surface film to swim toward the bottom. There was a sense of energy on the part of the fish, I hadn’t seen on recent outings. Colder mornings, geese flying South, foliage turning colors, the sun at a lower angle…not Fall yet, but one senses that late Summer feel.

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.

Stillwater Dragon Fly…

Oregon Rainbow Trout, Caught/Released by SwittersB

The abdomen of the dragon fly pattern is densely wound marabou (staggered colors) in a dubbing loop. The shaggy body is then trimmed with scissors or a razor blade (I prefer scissors). A wound hackle for legs and pheasant tail fibers for the wing case over the top of the plastic dumbbell eyes. The head here is dubbing but can be wound marabou fibers or ostrich herl fibers. I do not weight this pattern but prefer to take it subsurface with an Intermediate sink line fishing the shoreline of lakes out to the drop.

Slip Sliding Away….Blissful

seeking the escape
immersing oneself to find
colors and speckles

respect for nature
taking in the visuals
leaving the beauty
