In our house, family rules. That means fly fishing gets put on the back burner. Well after snowstorms, and obligations are behind us, a quick afternoon of fly fishing below the Glennifer Dam was in order. It felt great to get out!
I caught a walleye on the first cast. Now that made me smile! I was fly fishing with a double ice minnow rig. The second fly was attached with a tag of line about 2 feet above the point fly. Take a look at the second picture to see what it looks like.
Three walleye, a big whitefish and a sucker came to hand. I missed a few others. No matter, I was out on the water.
An osprey was hounding the local eagle unmercifully. A large flock of cranes made quite the ruckus as they cruised past on their way to warmer climates. Fall was in full swing in Central Alberta
I wore a winter coat. I was comfortable except for my fingers. They were definitely cold after they got wet unpinning walleye and then the 2 C wind blew over them.
Warmer air is in the forecast. The daylight hours are getting shorter. Try to time your adventures to enjoy the warmer afternoon air!
