On the bright side, other than missing work and having to stay indoors, I haven't really missed much in the rivers. For an Oregon fall, it's been quite dry. I'm sure the next big rain system we get will bring the late coho into our rivers for one of my favorite fall fisheries. There is a magical time around Thanksgiving when you can catch chrome bright winter steelhead or coho, and if your lucky a rare late bright chinook.
Our garage and kitchen have been happening places since I've gotten back from vacation. I've got a bunch of new product in the works to list on the "Feathers" page, once I get it packaged and photographed. You can tell the fly tiers are starting to get the tying bug as the days get shorter, because the material has been flying out the door (thanks guys!) . Keep your eyes peeled for the new stuff in the coming days.....AO
