Favorite Outdoor Places – Where to Start?

What better to think about in the middle of winter while one anticipates the arrival of the new fishing season – my favorite places. That was the prompt this week from the Outdoor Blogger Network.  Sounds like a great idea and it got me thinking.  Interestingly, searching for a photo or two brought me right back to home.  Here are a few photos that struck a cord.  Although all these shots were taken in the fall, they are of places close by where I manage to fish at least three seasons of the year.  Autumn in eastern Ontario is a a spectacular time of year for photographs – maybe the landscape is more forgiving of me at that time of year because I seem to have more shots that I would show in public from this time of year.  These images remind me that home is pretty special.

Fall Fishing

Bob, George and I took advantage of a fantastic fall Saturday to head out for some rainbow trout fishing.  It was a great day to be on the water and we managed a few fish in the process.

Here we are at the first lake.  As usual Bob is the first on the water although this time there were a couple boats that beat us to the lake.

Although the fishing was a bit slow, the scenery was great.

After lunch we headed to another nearby lake.  It is a much smaller lake, one which Bob and I fished in the spring but with no success.  It is a much different lake with a lot of dead trees along the edges. This time we had the lake to ourselves and the fish were a bit more cooperative.

Here is George at a slower moment – I don’t think he is sleeping.
