Humid solitude

Today I had the opportunity to visit some sacred water that I haven't been to in some time. These places you don't kiss and tell about so I am not going to speak much of it or its location. Many small bows today and the usual chub or two. The water was much faster today and everything was hitting drifting nymphs. Tried some dries but no joy there today.
The humidity was extremely high but it always has been here during this time of year. You could cut it with a knife. I covered about three miles today, that's three miles of rock hopping, crawling through the laurels and over the downed trees. Being the only one up this far today I felt it worth every drop off sweat. Enjoyed my bounty of Latakia today which works excellent at keeping the bugs away. Pipe of choice today was a 60's era Tom Howard. Rod an Orvis 3wt complimented with an Orvis CFO 1 loaded with Rio selective trout.
Got rained on a little so the pictures are few however I think you'll enjoy them. As always thanks for stopping by as I airways look forward to hearing from each of you... Cheers, JD.

PS.. I do think I'm ready for some new wading boots.. Ha!

One tired old dog

My Simms G4z's have had it! Pass the Goo please.


Looking back..

I have been asked to take a look back into the photo archives and post a few pics that had been posted previously or maybe never made a post. I feel that out of every 100 photos I take, I only see one or two I feel worthy of sharing. Much like your photos, they all hold some special memories of the past.

Like you, I feel blessed to live in such a beautiful area of our great country and that I am physically able to explore and enjoy as much as I can. I hope you too will go dig around your old photos and count the smiles they bring to your face as these did mine.

Do you have a special photo you would like to share? If you like, I have been thinking of doing a guest photo post. Please feel free to send a pic or two to me if you would like to take part. Make sure to add a short caption so I can post it along with your photo. To keep in interesting, I would like to gather at least five or more for the post. I hope to hear from some of you soon!
