Fall Caddis, Upper Sacramento River 11-8-2013

Leaves Fall.
Hues of Samhain, golden.
All glide down river.

Cascading water,
from deep aquifers, volcanic wall.
Moss and fern cling.

Caddis dapple, trout rise.
Under ancient volcano shadowy chill.
Venus sets, Samhain.


Middle Fork Stanislaus 11-4-2013

Swirls and glide,
my fly and fish together.
like peanut butter and jelly.

Brand new waders.
leaking in the leg, sloshing.
Me so cranky.

Twilight above.
On an Ashen Light wing,
a Bald eagle,
up canyon, soaring.
