This arctic blast is getting old............

Image

the past week, the highs have been around 5 degrees, so I sit and tie flies..................

Image

Image

When the weatherman said it would be above freezing, we got the fuck out of the house.

Image

*Side note........this it the healthiest breakfast I can stomach........

Image

The boat ramp was snowed in, so we were the first boat down the river this year!

Image

Image

Image

The fishing was actually pretty good.......

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Then the breeze picked up and it got cold. As fuck.

Image

The take-out was snowed in, so we got to drag the boat up the ramp...........no bad, but still.......

Image

At least we got January's float checked off the books.

Another good storm rolled through the area. It is good to see a bunch of moisture pile up in the hills-make sure to bring floaty things for the Luau.

One of the local boys is heading out on an adventure, so the shop put together a little fun for his last night in town. He is riding from Canada to Mexico fishing along the way..........

Anyway, a while back a lady dropped off some tying materials and said to get what they could for the lot.......it wasn't worth much, so we all picked out what we wanted. The leftovers were going to be used for a "tie-off" of shit........ we all got to draw thread, hooks, and then five random picks.

Something to do in the depths of winter and to say farewell to a good friend.



This past week has been rather hard for the Young Lass since her grandmother's passing. They were very close, so I thought I should make a run down to help her get out of a funk.

One way to cheer one up is through food. The first morning I whipped up a batch of breakfast burritos that would make Joe [color=#00BF00]green[/color] with envy.

I needed to run by the summer gig's shop to see if I could find a wire harness for the Carp Slut. While in the kingdom, the Young Lass and I ran into the head groundskeeper and a local kid. They were off to the lake to punch some holes in the ice and drink some beers. We joined them after looking for the wire harness.........didn't find it, by the way. The Young Lass showed us what a fish looked like, we drank, and worked hard on figuring out life's questions.

It turns out the kid is sick of school and is dropping out to do some traveling. He is heading to Australia and will end his journey in Perth, right before his sister's wedding. He needs a place to park his rig for a week-I will be giving him your information, Mitch.



The light went down and we headed out. On our way through town we stopped at the Legion. This ended up to be a mistake. The drink special for the night was a 32 oz mug of IPA for $2.

Now some might think that this was a blessing and not a mistake, but when one had plans to visit some miraculous stretch of river early the next morning, it surely is a mistake. Twenty dollars later, we made our way back to the Young Lass's place to dine on some Trout Piccata. Needless to say, the next morning was a bit rough and I wasn't looking forward to a two plus hour drive to fish a crowded stretch of water. It was easy to convince the Young Lass to sleep in, hit the ice again, and go to the Play-off Party. It was a great call..........good food, good people, and some fish slime is always a hangover helper.

The Lass had some skirt steak marinating for the day and cheffed up some killer fajitas that would make anyone [color=#00BF00]green[/color] with envy, not just Joe.

I had to hit the road before it got dark......but my drive home got me to thinking. It seems as if a bunch of folks have been pissed off with me of late, so it was quite nice to get around the people that really matter. Love me or hate me........I don't give a fuck. However, I will be out there limiting out on smiles.

When did you turn so philosophical and get so literate. Nice turn of phrase there.

Always a pleasure. The fact that you have not really stepped into that other internet mess speaks volumes. Silently.

That pic of the long defunct Annalope Café strikes a cord with me. I've driven by there a number of times and always have the same thoughts when I do:

"I'm hungry, this would be a great spot for a Café or Diner".

"I need to take a dump, this would be a great spot for a Diner or Café to take a dump and maybe grab a slice of coconut cream pie".

"I'm low on fuel, this would be a great spot for a gas station, maybe pick up a bag of corn nuts".

"I'm hungry, need to take a shit, bored out of my fucking skull from driving and low on fuel. This would be a great place for a Café or Diner or, better yet, a combo fuel and food stop where I could eat, shit, fill up the tank and be entertained by the local meth head/waitress while doing so. Maybe even buy a 'Annalope Cafe' bumper sticker or T-shirt".

I always wonder what the fuck went wrong there.

Having met him and fished with him on more than one occasion, it baffles me as well.

My guess is because he's pulling some hot ass half his age and limiting out on smiles every day.

Either that or the Trump neck tattoo.
