Quote(s) of the Day: Fall is in the air

Fishing Highlights:

The mercury dipped a little over night and the fish were pinned down today. We were able to get a few takers on a small hopper, but it was tough trying to pry them up to the surface. We did have a Czech rig handy which made all the difference. The interesting point from today was seeing that skinny water and tight pockets are not just for dry fly fishing, a proper Czech rig can effectively fit that bill as well.

The fishing is great.  Partly Cloudy skies and 56-59 degree weather. The water temperature was between 52-55 degrees and Crystal Clear.
