for some fishing. Here are some tips on
Late Fall Fishing Patterns

- With freezing temps here and if your fishing for the year has ended,
  here are some tips for Getting Gear Ready For Winter . But if not,
  there may still be a few good days of fishing, just take precautions for cold temps.

- As fishing season winds down, it is a good idea to Repair Cracks and Holes
in the cork grip of fishing rods to prevent further damage and need to replace.

Fisherman´s Prayer
God grant that I may live to fish until my dying day, and when the final cast is made and life has slipped away,
I pray that God ´s great landing net will catch me in its sweep, and in his mercy, God will judge me big enough to keep.
------------ ------------
" Thanks for visiting . . . May God Bless You & Keep You Safe "
When you pass through the water, I will be with you;
  and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you
- Isaiah 43:2
