It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas (if Christmas came in June)

70 degrees today.  Amazing.

Warm weather this time of year always feels weird. I mean, everything looks like winter. The trees are mostly bare. The sun follows a low arc during the course of the day.  Wind is a constant. Everything is grey and drab and carries a general sense of dreariness. In other words, winter.

Except that I'm wearing a t-shirt and wet wading comfortably.

This makes me feel oddly off-center. As if my brain can't reconcile the barren trees with the warm water lapping around my knees. 

The carp don't seem to care either way. Although not as plentiful as you might see in spring and summer here, they were not hard to find. Water levels have dropped quite a bit as of late, and I'm again finding fish mainly on the shallow shelves near deep water. This is apparently a low water pattern I've noted before.

They were tough and I failed far more than I succeeded. Still, a few were brought to hand.

Nice carp on the fly, do you ever eat some of the carp you land? I hear they can be tastey. Thanks for sharing

Gregg said...

Good for you Ty,

It's getting to be wintry, finally, here, with brief valley snows now. Still have some carp myself though, but it sounds like you may have them all winter.


Brent said...

Nice work, Ty. Enjoy the warm weather while you can.

Trevor Tanner said...

Man, you sure you NEED waders at all? They wouldn't fit or I would offer to take yours off your hands. Cheap.

Ty said...

Nah Bill, I never eat them. Mainly because I'm too lazy to clean 'em.

I just might, Gregg. Going to go after them no matter what.

I am Brent. Probably won't last too much longer.

Don't worry Trevor. I'll be draggin them out of the closet shortly. Good times and warm weather can't last forever.
