Closer To Home






October.

A month of miles and road trips.

Montana.  Idaho.  Washington. 

Chasing trout, steelhead, bird hunting photos.

The last week was spent closer to home.















Getting reacquainted

with a few friends....

    The big difference in the streams there as opposed to streams here is the cover along the banks. I've lost countless flies in tress along tailraces I've fished here. All those images are worth framing----great therapy for the back!!! Thanks for sharing

    1. Bill, while it seems that there's less cover there's still enough brush and tall grass that's hungry and willing to grab a fly. I've lost my share too.

      Glad the photos bring relief to the old back!

  2. Nice looking friends you have there. Creek looks inviting in its late fall dress, or lack thereof. Never tire of those shots from Paradise, and you capture them perfect.

    1. Hey Jim, thought you'd appreciate those shots of the creek and surroundings. Drove "over the hill" four times last week. A little midge action one day, decent hatch of blue winged olives on another afternoon. The other two days were dead. Nice to be out though. Hit 70 the last day over there. Now it's winter and we probably won't see 40 for a week or more.

      I hope that your arms don't get too sore from dragging in those tarpon!

  3. Les: Like the minimalist presentation of your beautiful photos. Paradise Valley was well named. My favorite pic is third from the top as trees in foreground light -up and contrast well with darker Absaroka Mts. in background; and like the rainbow cradled/framed in net (long/perpendicular type shot)....I love fish shots like that. Of course all your photos are great....and beautiful creek.

    1. Bob, thanks, the valley is aptly named. I never tire of the views. After accumulating a few thousand images I'm still looking for the one perfect shot. Then again, I appreciate your black and whites on Trout On Dries

  4. Looks like you had a great time last month. Photo reflections are crisp and clear and cause one to dream!

    1. Walt, I've wanted to spend October bumming around for years. So many opportunities and still not enough days. This year I'm glad that I took the time off because the winter weather switch got pushed with the onset of November.

      Thanks, and nice photos too on your recent post Rivertop Rambles
