Did You Smell Anything Yesterday?

I did.......skunk, and it was bad.

Yep, I got skunked yesterday for the third time this year.  Nada, nothing, not even a hit!  All 4 of us got stunk up, not that that makes it any better.  You would have thought one of us would have gotten lucky.....but nope.

The river was clear, a little low and quite cold - 40 degrees at 10AM.  The sky was clear blue and bright, and the air fairly warm for late November - mid 50's.

I was great to get out and enjoy the nice weather.   Later in the day, I went to the big farm with a friend and drove the trails until dusk to check out the property.  We must have seen over 300 pheasants - they were everywhere there was cover, or cover nearby.  Saw quite a few deer - a few good sized bucks in the mix, too.

All in all it was a good day.  The fish did beat us this time, but that's part of the game.

I'll be back.

If it makes you feel any better and it probably doesnt, I fished Thanksgiving, Friday and Saturday in NH and got one strike for about 12 hours on the water.
It still was fun though!
