Accidentally snagged a carp! Thought it was a log until it moved! Left a scale stuck to my fly as a souvenier!

LOTS going on with me these days, boys & girls! Sold a house ($320 K, I will have $130 K after I pay all my debts)!, moving to Canton (lower Huron & Rouge, Ford & Belleville Lakes), for a new consulting job (full-time!). Yep, lots of things FINALLY falling into place after more than a year of NO WORK.

Including some fall fly fishing! Plus some wildflowers & wildlife...with frigid weather imminent (40s F tomorrow!) this may have been my last day, 3rd in a row of nice weather & low winds. A fabulous November so far...not gonna last. Enjoy the pics! + Happy Veterans Day!!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Congrats on the new gig Jonathon, I hope it works out for you! I’m looking forward to more streamer fishing until the weather gets so bad I can’t wade and fish somewhat comfortably. And then it will be some quite time spent at the flytying table. Anyway take care and enjoy your new job and have a good holiday season.
Mike.

Congratulations, Jonathon. Love the photos, especially the wildflowers.
