I am also getting tired of the smog haze. This morning did have a nice crisp feel to it which I love. I like summer, but I love September mornings the best. Crisp when you wake up and mid 70's daytime highs. That's perfection in my books.
I prefer being on the water just before the sun comes up, snapping a picture or two when it does get airborne and then getting the bait out for some action. Sometimes if i'm too early, i'll
get the bait out first but that can screw up the timing of a photo op or two with biting fish.....
Sure beats the shit out of walking up to an office building on a fine September morning. Then again, come January I'll be saying, "sure beats the shit out of turning pipe" as I walk into my climate-controlled cubicle utopia.
