Trout Fishing in Stone Mountain

Fishing in Stone Mountain State Park on the 19th and the 20th was delightful, the weather was wonderful. The only problem was that the fish were not cooperating. It really is unusual for me not to catch a single fish after two days of fishing, but it happened. I was in the river by 10:00 AM on Tuesday and fished until 7:00 or so. I had a spaghetti dinner at the High Meadow Inn and hit the sack. It was a cool night with the room's heater going off after working for a few minutes. Next morning I was back at it trying not to be skunked as they say, but I was.
I left for home at about 3:00 and was unpacking the stuff by 7:00PM. All in all it was a beautiful couple of days.

Happy Mother's Day!

I don't have a picture to show it but the Mothers Day crepe recipe provided a wonderful start to the day. As an aside, the wedding tent that was set up in front of the Fearrington House blew down in yesterday's afternoon wind storm. I might be able to come up with a picture of the demolished tent later.

Beaver Shows Off His Work

This is one of the largest beaver felled trees I've seen. Actually the tree was felled by the Stone Mountain Park people so it wouldn't fall wherever it wanted. Though it wasn't far from being dropped by the beaver. My fishing reel gives some measure of diameter. The stream is just to the left. This is what I love to call the Magical Pool. Since it has been kind enough to supply trout at the nicest moments. Now you know why my carving has slowed, who can carve when there's fishing to be done.
