Cold Spring Weather

Snow yesterday. Blistering wind today. I had to do some fishing. I went out today to tempt bluegill with the fly and had some luck. But that wasn't the best part.

On the way home I decided to stop and poke around in a mineralogical rich area. After a winter as bad as this a lot of rock is often fractured or freshly exposed. The area of clay and sand you see bellow is a small pocket of quartz crystals. It was about the size of an orange and had some very nice specimens in it.

With temperatures rising again I will be out this weekend. Some streamer fishing is going to go down, and possibly a trip for suckers. 


  1. Nice find. That pocket looks good, you may find more. The panfish has great color and ready for Spring.
    Tie, fish, write and photo on...

  2. Nothing misses your "eagle eye". Good job.

    1. Except that this pocket was about 5 inches above a spot I had scraped around in before!
