Nova Scotia Fall Salmon

Well, I'm finally feeling well enough again to go after some of those Nova Scotia Fall Salmon.

I stopped by the Fishin' Fever shop to pick up a salmon licence and Mr. Short confessed to having had some considerable luck connecting with fish in the last week or two. He also was good enough to pick out a handful of flies for me to try.

Wahoo! Can't wait. Hope I can get a few vacation days in the next two weeks.

If you are wondering why I am so excited about our fall salmon fishing I'll post a few pictures from seasons past. Above is my Dad with a beauty

Brad with a nice one.

Me with my best ever.

That is why we love the fall here in Nova Scotia.

Fall Salmon and New Puppies

Get a load of this. We've added a new puppy to the family and another is on the way in mid-December. This little guy is Shorty, a Maltese puppy we have had for three days. I'm going to add a new cliche to my lexicon, "as cute as a new puppy" 'cause cute barely starts to describe this thing.

Later in December we are getting a Field Spaniel too. I am really looking foreword to that. Field Spaniels are my perfect definition of what a dog should be. I'll keep you posted.

The fall rains have started. The weather forecast is calling for rain every day this week. That means the rivers will be filling and the salmon will be running.

It's big flies, big fish and all of the glory of fall foliage on a smallish river. It's the best time of the year.

Now then, when it comes to some happy, positive thoughts for your day, what can beat new puppies and fall salmon?
