Oktoberbreast to Benefit CFR

As you know, I'm a big fan, supporter, volunteer, and cheerleader for Casting for Recovery.  If you're going to be in Boise this Thursday, join CFR at FranzWitte Nursery and Landscaping for Oktoberbreast, a tail-shaking event to raise money for local Breast Cancer Awareness.  There will be wine tasting, food, live music, silent auction, raffle, mammograms, local vendors, & flamingos! 

Among other things, you can buy a guided trip from yours truly as well as a trout tote and trout notecards from The Brown Drake.

Fall on the Creek

Finally!  I've been getting out on the Creek a little now that it's after Labor Day and it's definitely Fall, or Indian Summer, or both...  It's been warm, but the leaves are turning, the birds are moving, and the fish are getting hormonal--it's by far my favorite time of the year.

One of Paddy's clients left him with a Glen Bracket era Winston bamboo rod and I took it out the other day for some tricos and baetis.  I didn't catch anything over 12 inches, but it's just spectacular to feel any fish all the way into your hand.  It reminded me of how much I love cane rods.  The rod even matched the scenery.

This bad boy it nothing to write home about unless it's on a cane rod.  And one of my clients say they look like Christmas!

I can't wait to take it back out!
