Yesterday the Winona Fly Factory went from this:

I also managed these guys:

One of the best days ever here. Got to enjoy the last day of the season then began moving in to my house which is still technically in the city of Winona so the Winona Fly Factory remains accurate. I should note that the nearest trout bearing water is no more than a stones throw away which will work out well for me. I apologize for the skewed angle on the last fish of the season. Trying something new and it didn’t work out too well. Truth be told the fish measured just over 17 inches, not a bad way to end the season. Took a Kiss My Leech as I watched from the banks, twitched it right in front of his trouty nose, watched the turn then the white mouth and it was all over. More images of the trout outing to follow, for now more moving and un-packing.


  1. Thanks guys. It’s been a busy week most of it spent away from the new home. I’m looking forward to getting to know the place, learn to love it and take care of it. It’s going to be fun.

    p.s. the sunsets and stars are the best they’ve ever looked.

  2. Thanks Switters, it was alot of work getting to this point with more to come but I feel accomplished.

    Wendy, This is maybe the best thing to happen. It’s sure to eat into a bit of my fishing time but I’m cool with that. We have to get togather and discuss a few things, the composting a bit more, garden layout, the chickens and the list goes on and on. Anytime your around your free to stop by, I think you’ve got my number.
