AND of course the Giants SWEEPING the Detroit Tigers...I am not sure I even doubted them after watching game 1. I was a nervous wreck through the division series and NLCS, but after watching game 1 and 2 in the World Series I saw no way they could loose. Detroit looked comatose at the plate and when Zito and Bummgarner shut them down I had no doubt Voglesong and Cain could deal with that line up. Granted we got some breaks but as Jim Leland said the best team one and breaks don't lead to sweeps. I am not going to go spend a ungoly amount of money on memorabilia...

On to the fishing...I spent the weekend on the Feather fishing from Oroville down to Gridley area and fishing was great. There is a TON of spawning salmon throughout the river. Most fish in the Low Flow are up on redds and dropping eggs. Steelhead throughout the river are keyed in on the egg drop. In two days we did not catch one fish on a bug. All eggs. Some riffles are still very difficult to fish due to the numbers of salmon and fish in these riffles are dropping back to gorge on eggs. Areas with lower numbers of salmon the steelhead will get right up behind the redds in the nearest good holding water. Overall it was a great few days with good numbers of 18-22" fish with a few bigger ones landed and lost. Fishing on the Feather should remain good through October and well into November.
