[report]Taking a road trip to another province on my "lunch break" I arrived to a familiar pool and watched as a 79 year old man I know only as "Hoggy" celebrated his birthday and landed a 40+ fish. All I could think is I hope I'm as lucky when that time in life comes for me. I sat for a bit and shot the shit then took my first and only pass through before hitting the road.
Later that night
Fiddleheads means it's springtime in the maritimes
So we get out and enjoy
From the same rock at supper we watched as mom and calf ventured through the muskeg. And I took a shitty picture.
Big or small, I like topwater landing fish.
I like small jaw fish better though.
A few months back she started tying flies and decided she liked the simple old school trout and salmon flys best. She picked a plain pattern (bill's streamer) from a book and gave it a go.
last week she caught her first fish on fly gear on her first tie
We went to a wedding, stayed up too late , and drank too much. The next day she took me to a river from her childhood and told me to enjoy it.
Here's hoping that we teach our children well...
And just maybe...to give those responsible a good kick in the fuck...
