WI 2012 Trout Closer

Fall color is in full force in Wisconsin.  Who knew after a summer of so much heat and dryness that we'd be rewarded with such an amazing show.

I managed to squeeze in one more afternoon of Driftless fly fishing before the closing of the season.  The fish weren't real active, which seemed to be the norm the last few weeks of September, but, as usual, the surroundings easily made up for slow time on the water.

With the forced senescence that occurs every September 30th for inland trout fishermen in this state, it's now time to move onto fly tying, daydreaming, and steelheading (in no particular order).


  1. Great images of a beautiful and sad time of year.

    1. The closing of the inland season is sad, but this ending coincides with the running of steelhead from the Big Lake, which is an adequate consolation:)

  2. Apologies for contacting you through the comments with this query.
    I’m writing to see if you would permit me to post two images of you on my website. The images are in your posts September 18: The Enchanted Run and March 27: Tweed & Cane.
    My site is:

    Cool blog BTW! Thanks for the consideration.
