For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form

Someone has been leaving their mark.
Well the northeast is about to be hit by another October storm, the second big one in as many years. "Sandy" will impact Connecticut with heavy rain and strong winds. Last years October snowstorm wreaked havoc that was felt for weeks, and the small streams are still congested with fallen trees.
Yesterday I had the pleasure to enjoy a pre "Sandy" outing along a small stream. A chance to view the last remaining colors of Autumn, and to be able to toss a few dry flies in an attempt to take a wild trout. While the flies worked, bringing many offerings, and a few hookups, none came to hand. Still this day was a success in many ways.
The last colors of Autumn. Most of the leaves will be gone after the storm. The woods had a wonderful smell this day, it's hard to describe, but if "Yankee Candle" could duplicate it I'm sure it would be a winner.
So when I returned home I tried to capture those"Last Colors of Autumn" in a streamer. I think I may have accomplished that, in as much as man can do in creating the works of nature.
So today will be spent putting the deck furniture in a safe place, getting a few batteries, and some other necessities, and perhaps roasting a turkey with all the fixings.
