Fall afternoon on Haypress Creek


Blair sent along more photos fishing his Morgan 3wt.

"Greetings Shane and Tom, Got the Morgan 7’-3wt out on Haypress Creek Saturday afternoon. Under the beautiful fall colors starting to appear along the creek I was able to catch a couple dozen beautiful little rainbows throughout the afternoon. Nice day! Regards, Blair"
