Plans and Rain and Black and White
I'm still old school when it comes to finding places to fish. I pull out the paper maps and start checking those blue lines especially the ones that do not have a paved road to access them. One very important fact when it comes to the description of the roads which are a bit exaggerated a bit. Several maps show those broken lines which when you check the map legend state the road is unimproved. What it should say is that it's impossible to move forward without a helicopter. These unimproved roads some of which have gullies and ruts that can destroy your car. And then there are those old barbed wire fences that have been over grown with ground foliage. I have taken many a nasty spill on these fences, luckily I was not cut open. Many times I'll drive into these areas until I feel uncomfortable, I'll then park the car and walk to the area I want to fish.
We have and are still getting much needed rains. All day yesterday and through the day today rain will continue. This will likely cause movement of spawning trout which has been on hold for awhile.
A streamer photo that I ran across. I don't know much about it with exception of a Coq de Leon feather used in the wing.
Sometimes I like to see some of my photos in black and white. The way they looked so many years ago.
