Conditions, Spiders And Some Comfort
Conditions yesterday were perfect, that is for hiking and not fishing. We have received a great deal of rain in the last few weeks and it has produced some rather full streams. I fished yesterday selecting a couple of streams I thought would handle the heavy rain that fell Friday night and Saturday. When I got there it was not what I had hoped for. Both streams were full to capacity. I fished the edges and soft seams and managed to hook a few, the tally was 0 for 7.
The last few glimpses of the "glorious season" along a small stream. What a beautiful day to be out.
Woodcock and Orange
I was gifted with some beautiful woodcock wings and feathers by a reader of SSR's. Lovely markings on the feathers and it will provide some fine flies and a great deal of enjoyment at the vise this winter. Here are a couple of spider patterns tied with woodcock.
Woodcock and Olive
Now for the comfort. Baked turkey vegetable soup. We have a day coming soon that features the turkey and this is one of the ways I enjoy it, the other is a turkey sandwich. This soup can be made in a quick version also. You can use canned chicken broth, browned ground turkey, and canned mixed vegetables. Add sliced cheese, I like mozzarella and baked until cheese browns and is bubbly.
