|Tim with a -3˚C rainbow. Not huge, but satisfactory for the day indeed!|
And the day was pleasant, about 14˚C, too.
The next day I got out with my dad, and we decided to go to a quiet lake kind of near home (about an hours drive), and seeing as it was to be the last really fishable day for a while (you know, 9˚C, and not gale force winds), we pulled out all the stops, which pretty much included lots of coffee, a fully loaded boat, and just some rural good cheer.
It was a good day to be out, despite the fact that the weather didn't ever get really nice (I wore a touque all day). We got lots of rainbows from 12-16 or 17 inches, and a few smaller ones on little leeches and other generic sorts of lake flies. It was just nice to get out with the old man, and hopefully we get out hunting together once or twice this fall.

Hope everyone is enjoying fall while they can!
