Fall is my favorite time of year. I snuck out for a couple hours after work last night just to enjoy the cooler air, fresh scent of pine, and to hook a fish or two.

Nothing prettier than a spawning brooke from a brook. :)

Well nothing is prettier except maybe a spawning West Slope Cutthroat. Nope neither of the fish I posted are big, but who cares when they look like this. It was an enjoyable evening filled hits and misses on the creek. In the end I landed a dozen or so fish and thoroughly enjoyed the hyper quick couple hours on the creek. Why can't hours at work slip away equally as fast?!

As I was leaving this little fellow peeked out of the foliage at me from only 8 feet away. Ruffed grouse and the outdoors just go hand in hand in my mind. IT'S FALL and LIFE IS GOOD!

Nandy it's been a year since I caught my last brookie so I was pretty excited even if he was a tiny little bugger. I've got a creek with pretty decent sized brookies relatively near here. I want to fish it in the worst kind of way, but it's a little bit of a hike, and it is absolutely infested with rattle snakes. So I'm hoping for colder weather so I can get in and out of there without having to deal with rattle-me snakes.

From last year.

That is another awesome fish...

This is my largest brookie so far, we dont grow them too large so this is a nice size for our area. shame I cant find the original picture so I could zoom in the colors....
