I was really startled by the force of the water in NH. It tore up roads, washed away bridges and uprooted trees everywhere. The rivers have changed dramatically. Mother nature has scoured the banks clean of brush and debris. It reminds me of a clean face. The stones are buffed, downed trees stripped of leaves and bark. I thought the fishing would be a disappointment in September but was delighted to have found the fishing the most exciting ever. The fish were big and hungry when the water started to recede. I was finding big fish in unlikely places and taking unusual flies. It has been real fun exploring the rivers and streams after the floods. I am sad to see the season ending after being kept from the waters for weeks when they were were raging. I can't wait until spring!
