    A Couple of Fun Days

    The month of September was almost totally taken up with visitors and some must-do tasks, but things have finally returned to somewhat normal. So late last week I spent some free time doing my favorite things: looking for artifacts and fly casting to high country trout. I found only one good artifact, a Pinto point that dates from roughly 5000/6000 BC to around 3000 BC (according to Justice's book). It's 1-3/4 inches long and made of quartzite. The lateral edges of the base are lightly ground, but the top edge of the blade in the last photo is quite heavily worn, most likely by use as a knife. The lower blade edge exhibits no wear. After a month and a half of inaction, I was quite pleased with the find.

    Then I took a day to pursue trout with my fly rod. Had another good day here, and my best of many that day was this cutthroat that lacked about 1-1/2 inches of reaching the 24 inch mark on my fly rod.

    These last pics you might say were just for fun. Found this tarantula crawling up the side of the house one afternoon. I moved him to an area with less obstacles so he could continue his travels.

    Then snapped a quick shot of this bright fork in the road.

    Thanks for looking.

    Very nice Pinto, and very nice fish. Is that a Snake River cut?

    Thanks, Lucky. Yes, as far as I know, that is a Snake River Cutt. Nearly all the other cutts I'm familiar with are more sparsely spotted with much larger spots.

    Dick, I was really happy with the point, as well as the cutt. I'd like to break the 24 inch mark before things freeze up.

    Dennis, Major, I'm already scheming for my next day of fishing or artifact hunting. Looks like Thursday might be good for artifacts, Friday prolly a sure thing for more fishing.
