Less than a week to go...

A pleasant walk with Henry yesterday had us lingering upstream of Black Barn.  There were a few fish rising as there was a sparse hatch of Large Dark Olives coming off.  It looked so good even though the trees are yet bare that a snap was in order so I made an attempt at a hand-held series of snaps to join up into one. 

Here it is.
