Old guy, still fishing.
Went to the w. end of Nunnelly on Sat. Nice cloudy overcast day with almost no wind. Got buzzed by a 2 ft rattlesnake where I got in but he was in a hurry and left. The water felt nice and cool (no thermometer) wearing Levis under my waders. I could see lots of rises as I walked down the hill and the fish were happy to eat a gray hopper any time I covered a rise. They were mostly this years plants. 8 to 11 in and lots of sunfish. I caught a few of the nicer fish but very few. Tried subsurface but the risers were the only game in town and they were mostly small. The water is very clear and a bit more cool weather might wake up the big guys. I thought about the snake as I was fighting my way through the reeds and sure enough he was waiting for me at the waters edge. A good day all around. The snake is still there.
