I thought I would share. Also see if it will work.

Ha! You call that cold outside!? ;)

Here's cold outside!



That said, you've got an outstanding stream picture there. I wish I'd taken it!

Hi everyone.

I have another picture of The little j or should I say a log----well I'll tell you the story.

While walking along the banks of Little J, I saw a squirrel run down a log that was partially submerged in the water. It picked up an acorn that was mysteriously right at he bottom of the log where it entered the water. It picked up the acorn and just sat there, trying to figure out how to get it into its mouth, when, all of a sudden a huge tail fin came out of the water and swatted the squirrel off the log and into the water. The squirrel dropped the acorn and tried to swim back to the log, but a huge hooked jaw came out of the water and swallowed the squirrel in one gulp and disappeared. I stood there in amazement and disbelief and stared at the water for a few minutes. Then, after everything calmed down and there was no other sound, I saw a large fin come out of the water and put another acorn on the bottom of the log!!! Happy holidays everyone.

Thanks for making the winter shorter.

Hi John-

Well done. I can usually see one coming from a mile away, but this time, I was totally unprepared for your punch line.

Cheers,
Best regards,

Don"t feel bad, I took just like it was one of Lloyds flies.

Cats out of the bag now:)

Great story, John. I was already trying to figure out where the log was, and thinking about going after that monster when I got to the final turn. I had the fly in my mouth and was headed for the bottom--and what fun. Happy Holidays, my friend.

OK the true story of the squirrel and the log is in the middle of this thread, and well worth scrolling down from the top. The story starts:

Hi everyone.

I have another picture of The little j . . .

God, I missed that one. Thanks for bringing it to my attention, Louis. I guess I would have put on a Squirrel Hair nymph and given that fish a try.

Jonathon, your bat story reminded me of John's squirrel story. it's about the 6th post down from the photo, and some of the newcomers may have missed it.
