Back to the Ditch and Fly Pattern of the Day

Finally it is time to get back to the ditch and wet a line. Seems like it has been a month or so, but only several weeks. That is along time for our household. Will feel good to get both the flyrod and the oars back in the hands.

The second season is now upon us, and some of the best fishing is here. A little morning nip in the air to start the day, days are shorter, and the fish start the winter feed. What can be better.

Oh yeah, throw in the streamer bite. Let's get it on.
