A little bit eerie, Ralph.

Last edition, your article mentioned sitting on a rock observing what was probably the close of the season and noting how things would soon be cloaked in winter colors ( as I recall without going back to the article ). I had done the very same thing just the day before, wondering if I would get a chance to fish my home water again this year.

This week, you refer to a pair of river otters. This past Saturday, I had the pleasure of watching a pair of river otters on my home water for the best part of half an hour. What fun. And what a treat. A very rare treat to be sure, since it was only the second time I have seen otters over the past several seasons.

Can't hardly wait for your next article. Maybe it will be about hooking into a winter steelhead ..........
