As I was sitting on our couch daydreaming about tossing some flies at any trout willing, I heard a weird, unfamiliar sound. I thought maybe the wind blew one of our deck chairs across the deck so I hopped up quick to see what was going on outside. When I discovered what made the noise my jaw dropped and I had that feeling in my stomach like flying past a police officer at 80 and he just keeps driving :) This huge old White Pine had been blown over by the strong winds and the rotting of the tree combined. Had this fallen in a different direction it could have demolished our home. Needless to say we all thanked are lucky stars and now we don't have to worry about being crushed by it anymore. I will miss seeing it but that is a price am willing to pay:) The wind was whipping the next day as well, but I didn't let it stop me from fishing a new stretch on my home stream. After living next to this creek for over 7 years I had yet to fish this stretch due to the insane weeds and marshlands surrounding it. The DNR recently did a controlled burn on this stretch which made for some sweet hiking. The fish were holding in deep sandy channels. It was kind of like fishing off the breaks of sandbars in the Wisconsin River for walleye. The small stretch I covered seemed to be holding some nice healthy trout. It was a beautiful windy sunshiny day!! Hope you enjoy the pics :)
Until Next Time.......Tight Lines to All !!!!!
