i can't believe it has been a month - time flies...esp when you are constantly tormented by flies - kymber and i and everyone here is suffering immensely.... all waiting for at LEAST the blackfliesto end - right now is the worst - hordes of blackflies and hordes of deerflies .it is on onslaught from sun-up to sundown.. bendryll and deet help - but sometimes 5 mins outside and another 15-20 bites.. it will make you sick.
so we have had a few sick days and been busy busy - soooo... it has been a month.. june is tip-top fishing so i have some pics!! lots for both pp and sandy and scifi so play nice and share!!!
june 21 - this was a cool semi-cloudy morning
up the creek mouth i went. canoes are pretty awesome ;-)
on the way back - the sun and clouds were doing some pretty amazing stuff on the surface of the river!
and 3 nice trout - YUM!!!!!
june 22 - you have seen pics of strachan's brook many times on our blog - in the evening i often spot trout surfacing - so i decided to give it a shot!
on with the hip-waders and down the driveway!
across the road and over the embankment - what fun..
we have noticed that over the years, the brook has been slowly flooding the land right across form us - the bridge on the road has one culvert with steady flow... i think it is cutting a bigger furrow - the trees are slowly dying/drowning..
then again - this critter might be contributing too - i often see he/she swimming about..
okay - i am up to my lower chest and getting BIT TO F*** by blackflies!!!!!
it IS pretty!!
40 mins - 5 nice trout - once a month i will visit so as not to over-fish the stillwater out! k and i are feasting on trout at this point!!
2 days later, june 24 - 5:45 AM
just past the solstice and the sun is already up in the sky..
dew abound - the air is pretty cool...
yeah, i know - more spiderwebs - heck - i think they look pretty nifty!!
down near the river - carnivorous plants - this is a sundew....
and a pitcher plant..
this is the flower of a pitcher plant..
nice sunrise.. you can see the mist on the water...
the air is cool but the sun bright - it is hot and cold at the same time!!
okay - after 4 years, i don't know how many times i have paddled over this - the butt of a gun, no steel left - LOL!
and a great catch!!
awesome sunset the other night..(just over strachen's brook)
hope you are all having a great summer so far!!
