    Sayonara Sunset

    WALLPAPER EDITION
    1600 x 1200
    Madison River - 10/25/08
    .. As fishing in Yellowstone Park comes to it's season's end we offer this wallpaper for your pleasure. Download it and use it as you like.
    .. Winslow Homer, Thomas Moran, Andrew Wyeth, and Fredrick Church all appreciated the low evening light and the subtleties of "flat light." Just before the sunset we were fishing in National Park Meadows and were treated to the kind of scene that would make these gentleman drool.
    .. The elk were so placid that we knew that there was not a wolf to be found. The fisher folks in the background are famous neighbors, (without clients,) enjoying the unseasonably gentle fall weather.
    .. The weather gods have decided that "enough is enough" and promised spectacularly dreary weather for tomorrow and the rest of the weekend. Bluster, rain, snow, hail, sleet, and wind are in the offing. Climb into your woollies and enjoy the fishing.
    .. Wet flies, soft hackles, double nymph rigs, and streamers are the needed arsenal on the Madison River if you're looking for Hebgen Runners.
    .. Toodle up to Nez Perce Creek, the Firehole River, or the Gibbon River Canyon for mid day action - (don't wade: sneak the banks and fish the cool dark undercuts.) Stay late and enjoy the fishing and sunsets.
