|I can NEVER get close enough or have the right glass to get|
a good clean shot of Kingfishers. They seem to keep that 100' barrier!

I had to get out and chase down some shallow carp one last time before we close out the year..This will likely be the last trip considering tomorrow is it. I fished some areas I have not pounded in a about two months. There were good numbers of tailing fish up on every flat that was out of range. A few fish came with in 60-70' but it's tough to bomb casts out like that on real skinny water, with out blowing out the fish in closer that you can't see. As the day went on I was able to get some good shots with in 25-30' and fed three. The fish in this water shed are long and lean and motor once they get stuck. They always look the same year round. Crayfish are all over the shallows and they jump dark dad flies. It was a nice way to close out the year and I will be taking a rest from Carpin the next month or so since my favorite tail water steelhead rivers open on the 1st and I didn't take advantage of some good fishing last year.
