A little less farther (TR)

Post by Deadwestern » Fri May 12, 2017 3:56 pm

[report]



I remember a story in the rag a few years back which to paraphrase would say the greatest adventures require going a little further. Get your tires off the pavement, make the journey the destination, go past the breakers and the like. It always stuck with me. Last night was none of those things. The next town over, a farm I know, a fly I have used for years, and the good ole American panfish.

With Huck in bed we headed back to the pond so Tiffy could show us how to properly land a bass.

Thank you! That made my day... There was nothing in there but beauty. It's mostly small stream Brookie fishing in my corner of the world right now, but I think I'll throw the canoe on the car on Sunday and find some bluegills...

Sometimes catching familiar fish out of familiar waters can be as good as it gets. You've got a beautiful family.

There's a lot to be said for the familiar.

Having a pond like that close by and a beautiful family to enjoy it with makes you a very lucky man in my book.

Grand report!

Looks like the ponds down here.
Except for the fishing a pond in a drift boat.

Nothing like getting slammed by a good blue gill, pumpkin seed, or red ear on a 1wt. And a cute wife who will throw a fly? Living-the-dream.

I was raised on farm ponds. Wish I still had access to a few close to home.

Love that shit. :cool
