The weeks roll on and the fish continue to come to the bank.

My  motivation to be a frequent and regular poster has waned from previous seasons. I have no idea why. I can only hope the spark will reignite with in to recount  the exploits of Joe and friends.

When we have hit the runs with good timing our time has been a blast. As we all know the fish continue to move on their journey through the Zoar and beyond.

There have been a few slow days where the frustrations of the morning have been tempered by brilliant sunlight and cordial conversations with Bill and Frank which brings smiles to our faces.

Here in pictorial form are a few moments burnt in time that God has grace me with this season.

Good water, good fish and more importantly good friends.....

And so it begins once again......Fall 2014

And so it begins....The Fall 2015 steelhead season is upon us and we are filled with visions of acrobatic chrome laying our tired arms to waste.

Monday I met up with Bill and Frank for what I hope to be many, many ,many trips this fall.
We hit the stream early and hard with some success. It was a great day with nice green water.

There are mornings on the water when  the competitive spirit comes out and your not as relaxed due to stream traffic or other setbacks. This was not one of those days. The water was right,the company was right and there were a few fish that were eager to do business.

Strangely enough I even broke a smile  a few times and cracked a few jokes with these fine gentleman.

As always Bill and Frank put on a clinic.

I added a few to the numbers myself.

All in all a fine morning on the water with two of the best human beings I know.

I could not  have asked for a better day off from the office.
