Brush Creek near the Country Club Plaza
Despite the beautiful weather in Kansas City the season is winding down. A week ago I spent Sunday on some wonderful creeks west of town but mainly enjoyed the fall colors. I found some small longear sunfish on Cedar Creek and the chubs were still out on Mill creek but things are getting slow.
This past Sunday I didn't want to invest in a drive to the country so I went down to Brush Creek at the Country Club Plaza, the famous shopping district. True urban fishing but with really nice views. I think all the concrete may act as a heat sink. I walked along the wall casting ahead of me with my Soyokaze 27 and a sunset killer bug and caught a fish literally every cast for almost an hour. This maybe the last hoorah of the season but what a nice way to spend the day.

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." -

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
