    In The Groove

    BLESSED WITH PROXIMITY
    Dashing To The Holy Water
    the slide toward great fishing is on 

    -------
    .. The Ωκεανιναι are dancing in Yellowstone National Park. They are cooling the nights and softening the days.
    Naiad Nymph
    Astride River-God
    .. They have caused the Firehole River to recede back within it's banks. It's time to seriously begin the pilgrimage to the sacred stream.
    .. We're blessed with proximity to the stream. It's just a gentle half hour or so to the first fishable stretch. It's no more than 45 minutes to the most fishy of places. We're able to react instantly when the conditions demand it. They demand it NOW!
    Auria Is With Us
    .. So, we're going to toddle off to visit the fish on the Firehole River. The air is 35° F, the water is 52° F, and it's clearing.
    .. The sky is overcast, the breezes are gentle and the biological imperative is bringing bugs to the attention of winter starved fishes. What more can a fisher want?
    .. There will be stories generated. There will be photos taken. There will be fish caught and not caught. There will be a grand time for those in attendance. Proximity is a blessed thing. We're glad that Ναιδες, & Αυραι,  the nymphs, are with us.
