Finally The Rains Arrive

A GENTLE RAIN MAKES RUNNING TOUGH

We’ve had an absolutely beautiful Fall, and I knew that the rain would get here soon. Well it did. The rain started yesterday at about 2:00 o’clock and continued to about midnight – it’s still drizzling some but the sky is bright.

I don’t have a lot of time for this. I ran my 4 miles yesterday and my shoes got heavy. The workout was good, though, and I am on my way to do another 2 miles this morning. Mom has to leave Friday, and we’re planning the rest of the week. Food and some nice wine will play an important role. I’ll let you know. She’s going to the trinket stores to buy rubber tomahawks, or something.

a-rain-cloud.jpgI didn’t get to the park to fish yesterday – “the best laid . . . ” But the low sky bodes well for some Baetis, even if it puts the squash on the Caddis. We’re blessed with this Fall overlap in bugs. I may try for some big fish again today. The “Family Hole” and the “Local Hole” should be fishable in about an hour. The Madison River should hold it’s shape until tomorrow. The rain was persistent but not too heavy, so the fishing ought to be OK for another 12 hours or so.

I didn’t get to the range either. Maybe my competition days are over. The ‘drive’ is just not too strong. I finished all the new loads, but the hassle of getting there and back didn’t seem worth the effort. Aah youth – gone!

Well, off I go.
Here’s a picture of the rain just as it started out by the lake.
