CATCHIN SOME SUN !!!!!!

 
 I've been out fishing a few times lately and ended up with way more gnat/mosquito bites than actual fish bites.  I have caught a few, missed a few, lost a few and tossed a few(flies that is).   Did I mention the heat factor?  Let's just say I am actually looking forward to some early fall SW Wisconsin weather.  I'm the type of guy who prefers a 68 degree day over an 88 degree day.  I still can't figure out why the people on the local news are so excited when they hear it is going to be another scorcher of a day.  I instantly assume these people are not big into fishing of any sort, and have never worked a day out in the summer heat before.  I guess I can't complain because after all this is Wisconsin.  It is kind of like a sour patch kid.  One minute it's sour, the next minute it's sweet.  Just the way I like it.  Here are some pics of me catching some sun in the places that I love to catch trout.   Stay cool everyone.  Ditch the waders and get wet.  Become one with the fish :)  Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking!

  2. I hear ya. I'm not a huge fan of wet wading. I don't like the feeling of stuff touching my legs and I always wonder how sanitary the water is. That has all gone out the window with how hot it has been. I've been wet wading exclusively lately. I have been wearing simms wading pants. I guess in my mind that is creating a good enough barrier between my legs and the nasties.

  3. John,
    Yep I bring it with me when I go ice fishing too. :) Thanks much for the kind words. Glad you like the photos. Tight Lines.

  4. Kev,
    Yeah I am kind of wary of which spots I go. If I wear shorts I end up with my legs stinging so bad from nettles that I can barely take it. But oh how good that water feels when the stinging is bad. Tight Lines.

  5. Sweet photos. I am in the wet wading phase of my season as well. Listen...when the weather up there gets to cold and you want to warm up, just head on down. Plenty of spots to share!

  6. Marc,
    Thank you very much. Once it gets cold here they shut the streams down on us. For spawning reasons. I hate when my guides freeze up, but love fishing in the snow. I will be looking to get away from the chill sooner or later. Thanks for the heads up. Tight Lines.

  7. Great pics as always. I can almost feel the heat and humidity when looking at some of those pics....no wait, it is the heat and humidity. It's hot here in the east too. Best thing for hot weather, go stand in cool stream and go fishing.

  11. Kiwi,
    Thanks a lot. Sorry to hear that it's hot out there too. Seems like we can't escape the heat no matter where we live. Good thing there are streams everywhere and we all get a chance to cool off the best way we know how. Wading with the fishees. Tight Lines.

  12. Jeff,
    Thanks for the kind words. I will leave the gnat bites out of the story so that way you won't being getting bit over and over again :) Glad you like the pics. Tight Lines.

  13. Brk Trt,
    Thank you very much. I think I will take a page from your book soon and go out right before the sun comes up. Hopefully that will help with the gnat bites. Tight Lines.

  14. Blake,
    I hear you man. They get stuck in my beard and I don't even know they are there until it is too late and there is a huge lump on my chin or neck. Nasty little bastards for sure. The worst part is that the sprays seem to attract them even more. Well gotta go scratch my itches. Tight Lines.

  16. Well, the photography was outstanding even if the bugs were bad and the fishing was off. Rivers are coming down here, 'bout time to get out there again.

  19. EcoRover,
    Thank you very much. The fishing isn't too bad just the bugs mostly. Makes it really hard to concentrate on fishing. I have been missing all kinds of bites. Good luck on your fishing ventures. Tight Lines.

  22. Beautiful pictures of the sour patch...all I can say, is that driftless is sweet for sure :-) I'll be wishing you 68 degree days from here on out...well, we can dream can't we...ha!

  23. I can't say enough about the beautiful photos. If you fish half as good as you shoot, you should publish your own magazine.

  24. Magee you have a pretty good eye for photography.
    Nice bunch of pics. Wet wading by the way, is the new black. Always in fashion!

  25. Sanders,
    Thanks much. The sour patch is definitely a little more sweet than sour. Heres to 68 degrees for everybody around the board. Fingers crossed. Tight Lines.

  26. Cofisher,
    Thanks again. That is a good idea. HMMMMmmmm. Travel across America and interview fellow fisherman. Sounds like a good idea to me. I'm off to get packin. Tight Lines.

  27. Kevin FWE,
    Thank you very much. Nothing feels better than getting in and feeling that cold water on the shins. Luckily the spots I wade aren't super deep. Wet wading is definitely a lot cheaper than chest waders:) Tight Lines.
