    Foggy Fishing

    TOO EARLY FOR MOST
    Time Is Getting Short

    WALLPAPER: TANDEM FISHING IN THE SEAM
    -------
    .. Full blown summer is nearly upon us. Visitors are jam-packed into the narrow two lane roads in Yellowstone National Park. Sleeping weather with cool nights is fast disappearing. The morning fogs along the Firehole River are also becoming scarce. Fish them now or be done with it.
    .. Getting up in the wee small hours of the day can be a real chore when the days are long and bright. Should you be so inclined there are rewards to be gathered. Spinners fall. Cripples float. Trout look up and have an early breakfast. Try it you'll like it - or not.
    .. We can handle the morning yawns and aches a couple of times each year. We fish the attractor fly: Yellowstone Morning Glory, (recipe HERE.)
    .. It takes a few fish. We wonder why we left the comfort of the bed and return for a real breakfast and some coffee. The day is over by 7:30 AM - or thereabout.
    .. There may a few of the faithful with strength enough left to handle the exercise. It's technical fishing, (except for the fly,) and the fish are groggy, flighty, spooky, and genuinely hungry.
    .. Just sayin'.
