have to bring your own red, tractor
and green, canoe..
we did some farm work first, pickup of three-quarters of a mile of irrigation pipe, stack and tie down. Then cut enough old elm for the woodstove in the barn to heat the upcoming pheasant season. Then fell another dying elm, top and mulch the branches for the young grape vines. That's what the tractor is doing, running the chipper/shredder. My forearms were sore for days, I'll blame bucking a chainsaw for hours instead of the fly casting.
Felt we'd earned a few hours fishing and headed up into the hills.
Don't really need a canoe for this pond, but it does let you sneak up on the bank feeders from an unexpected angle. Fishing a Fenwick FF856-5 after a summer of the FL90-5, it felt a very long rod in comparison.
The prairies fall a bit short of fall spectacle. On the other hand the brookies had all the colors you might want.
I had to wear my fleece of many colors trying to keep up, think I did not manage it. It is a poor fall without catching a few gaudy brookies in full panopoly, glad we managed it this year.
