Being a guide means that you change activities with the seasons. October first marks one of those shifts in activity. I change from a fishing and canoe guide to an upland bird hunting guide. I have been working with the dogs for an hour or so each evening for the last six weeks and everyone seems to be ready except the boss. Changing mental gears is the problem, I don’t want to put away my fly rods and striper gear.
The foliage change is starting to happen but we are still a couple of weeks at least away from peak color. There are a few trees that have color but for the most part things are still as green as August. We are supposed to have a frost tonight so I am sure that will get things moving.
The wind is very strong out of the southwest and the rain showers are frequent enough to make me glad that I have a large pile of work to do on my desk. That is not always the case.
