Does Size Matter?

I know we're digressing again, but the rivers are just too full of water and debris to fish right now. 

The old wives tale says that the bigger the acorns, the worse the winter to come.  If you believe in that stuff, we're in for a doozey this coming winter season.  This is a typical acorn from one of the oaks on my property this year.  The things are huge!   This photo is not doctored or p-shopped, just a little ole acorn next to George for perspective.  When one of these fatties falls from its mother and lands on the roof, it sounds like someone is tossing rocks at the house.  


The squirrels may be happy now, but that may change when they are freezing their asses off this winter trying to figure out where they stashed them.  And the deer, they think they're in candyland right now.

I was just noticing yesterday on my walk into work, that acorns were much larger than I remembered. Felt a little crazy. But glad it's not just me. Going to have to chop some extra firewood.....

So I guess we are in for a little more snow.

Nice fishing with snow on the fly.
