The pond continues to provide

After returning from our beautiful, surprisingly quiet river cruise empty-handed yesterday, we decided to visit the pond after dinner. The trout are eager to leave the warming pond and head for the river, but five lingerers chose to come home with us. The ospreys were out in force, and a small troupe of pelicans swam in the pond and flew overhead, delighting us.

I actually caught the five trout, but two bolted from the lure hooks as I held them up to land them. My husband snatched them back and kept them from returning to the pond–a frequent drama with the steep terrain there. He quickly dispatched and cleaned them, and we returned home with our full catch.
