With the first major cold front of the year leaving Fall hanging in the air, it's time.
Time to go fishing.
Get out there and take advantage of the bait migration, the cooler temps, the clear water, the low numbers of fishermen on football Sunday afternoons. Do yourself a favor - grab a fly rod and get out there.
I haven't fished in a month or so now, which honestly is a bit hard on my soul. The upside is that I have been able to spend a lot of time with family and friends on a piece of property that my family owns out in the hill country of Texas. It's a beautiful, harsh place. Characterized by limestone, deer and little rain, the Hill Country is romanticized by many and lived in by few. I love the time that I get to spend out there. Away from the hustle and bustle of the urban areas, I get to unwind. I get to see things that most others don't get to see... which was the case one foggy morning a couple weeks ago. I was out on a 4wheeler when the fog bank hit, and it was a good thing I knew where I was going because visibility was ~20 feet for a little while. Then, just as suddenly, it cleared and left behind thousands of sparkling jewels in its wake. Spider webs, having caught the moisture from the air, strung out the beads of dew to catch the sunlight. Some were situated such that they formed prisms, creating rainbows in the heart of the webs. I just had to share such a beautiful phenomenon with you, and so here it is. Some repeat, some are edits, but each picture is unique and I like the different aspects shown here. Hopefully, so do you.
