Good idea to get it all in. No telling what kind of smoke conditions coming our way. Bugs getting fired up in the high country.
Slow day of fishing to end a killer weekend but absolutely stellar weather.
Now back at the camper winding down with my wife and planning the next adventure. I'm thinking it is time for some backpacking....
Nice work, Steve !I ended up on San Juan Island for the weekend, partly for fun and partly for research. And as the town, in its infinite wisdom, had decided to proceed with its annual fireworks display (but cancelled the parade), it seemed like a great opportunity to see how well the TG-5 could handle pyrotechnics.
But before the human show, there was a natural show in the form of a full moon on a calm, largely cloudless sky.

The harbor filled with boats to view the display, including two ferries that tarried in port for the duration of the half-hour show. [Frankly, it would have been hard for them to have left the dock with all the boats scattered around.]

The honking of boat horns and the ferries' whistles indicated the delight at the display.
Lots of goldens.
And yellow sallies, caddis (both black and tan) pmd's, and green drakes.
Pretty much a bug buffet.
