Gratitude

Post by Deadwestern » Sun Aug 24, 2014 11:30 am

[report]My wife’s fascination with fishing is, while similar to mine, laced with a sometimes deeper sense of gratitude. I spend my time off the water, tying (shitty) flies, and planning our next trip, while she reminisces of the time we have spent, and the fish she has caught. She has been particularly smitten with a certain trout she caught a few years ago, her first on a dry fly.

Despite a new job keeping her busy, she finally had time to finish this. The first in a series on reclaimed wood.

That's really cool.
I usually drop em in the grass and then fish out another cast or two while I wait for them to get tired enough to hold still - that way you can actually tell how long they are against the rod. - JT

[report]Number 2. Her long awaited speckled trout, after a few nearly fishless days in the lagoon.

[report]I love the isolation winter brings. For the next few months the lake is calm, the crowds are non-existant, and the striper is king. They keep me out late at night as often as not drinking by my self in hopes to landing one of these oversized landlocked salt fish . The dichotomous Lu Lu Lady cares not about the large fish of winter, but rather sunshine and the Great American Panfish. They don't need to be chased down, overanalyzed, or searched for. Sunfish are where you are, at the dock drinking a beer, swimming with friends just off the point, in casting distance from the beach bonfire.

Great use of color. Really like the contrast against the board.
