AUTUMN!

 

The Sky is cloudy, rain now and then, cool air, quiet and peaceful. I love it.

It is why I live in the Pacific Northwet. :D

 

I have been Pacific Northwestized.

Normally the rain drives me nuts, but having dealt with wildfire smoke all last week at least I can breathe in the rain! :huh:

Alays peaceful here.

The big Cottonwood is our sentinel tree. It's always the first to change. Nice cool northern breeze today makin Old Glory stand out against the Fall sky. I went over to Durango yesterday and the Aspens are staring to turn color at around 8,000 ft. The smoke cleared quite a bit too. Stll hazy on the horizon to the west though.

Great photos Bob. Heavy rain last night has washed out the smoky air. A definite chill in the air tho. 

 

Over at the plantation we had some cottonwoods in the neighborhood.

They turn early and have big yellow leaves.

Yes!  It’s even noticeably cooler in Houston.  Of course the tropical storm helped a little.

Sweetest water I ever tasted comes from a little spring that feeds into it just upstream in the national forest.

The Muskegon River, about a mile down the road.

Ours are narrow leaf cottonwoods. Populous angustifolia. Some guy on line tried to argue they weren’t cottonwoods cause his had broad leaves. :lol:

btw auto correct changed it to Angus Tinfoil 3 times.  :rolleyes:

We get a good hatch. I'm a worm on a hook kinda guy though. Just enough weight to run the line out. No casting, just a flip and short drift.

Well that can be done with a 3 wt. rod and a 9 ft. leader.

You bet it can. My grandpa did it that way. I have used flies with spinning gear and it worked well. A small casting bubble and short leader. Never got into using a fly rod much except for bluegills a couple of times. That was a hoot and we outfished everyone.

Oh, today was beautiful here in the Tucson area.  The wife and I sat out on the patio until a little past noon enjoying the delightful weather.  The temperature only got up to 95F here today.  Love this cool weather!
