Another Teasing Spring Day

Another teasing spring day: you think the warmth is here to stay, and then the cool edges fold in on you again. But while it's warm you give in to the temptation to tempt some bluegill with a dry fly. You see bona fide rises, and you get some tentative bumps. But the hookups come by raking the shorelines with a streamer. Still small fish, but harbingers of better to come. All signs--from the glint of sun on water, to rushing geese, to ghostly blossoms in the dusk, to the quarter moon breaking through the clouds--point to hope.

  1. You are right, Jim. Better days are in the making for you on the lake......Even though, the day you had would make me more than happy! Thanks for sharing.
