a driftless video

Some shots from one of the Driftless region's fine trout streams. The tune: "Say Valley Maker" by Smog.

At my neighbor's BBQ I ran into a guy from x-town. I made the comment that I like fishing x-creek near his home town. His response was "yeah, I fish x-creek". After lunch he sits at my table and asks a couple questions about x-creek. After he finds out x-creek is no secret to me, he says with a big smile "we don't talk about x-creek". Unless of course you know all about x-creek. Then we talk about x-creek :)

Carp. Not easy.

I nabbed one. Not easy. Perhaps when things heat up the carp will be more willing to eat.

High Water Trout

 Fishing the high and chocolaty water doesn't make for the best fishing. But patience can pay off. This trout appears to have recently eaten a small football of sorts.
And if the fishing is no good... Of course you can always relax and have a brew.
