Mayflies...




Found this on Weather Underground this morning. The caption has this mayfly invasion is from FL. I really like this photo because it reminds me of the Elk River Fly Shop during the Sulphur hatch during late April through mid-May. Can't wait to get back on the stream soon. With rain in the forecast for 8 of the next 10 days, the Steelhead will start running further up the streams. Reports have indicated that they are already in the mouths of the major streams as we speak. Hopefully during my bye week, I can get a early Steelhead trip in.

Painting...



My sister sent this picture of a painting that she had just completed the other day. After looking at it, I was very impressed with her first attempt of painting a fish. This week, I will be sending her a picture of one of my steelhead or brook trout to paint.


This past Saturday was the greatest football game that I have ever been a part of as a player or coach. There were ten lead changes in the game, and six of those were in the last 4:30 of the 4th quarter. Glad to be 1-0 to start the season against a solid opponent. Up next for the Yellow Jackets is Hanover College at Wiley Stadium this upcoming Saturday.
