That's a proper send off, surrounded by good company and released into the current. The wife has promised to make marbles out of my ashes. A jetsam destiny awaits us all

Been getting out some since we relocated back to Michigan. Lot of excuses for lack of regular reportage, none of which are unique or interesting. The land is really fucking flat here, the people are rounder, and you can drive everywhere. But some of the rivers actually have trout, and none of them are closed for lack of migratory rainbow trout returnage (yet).

Bear dog found employment keeping the neighbor's spey hackle off the property.


6lbs of do not fuck with. Critters and panfish are of importance
Image
Image
So are trout, though there's a fair amount of asking why the fishing is so slow. Attention span and size are the same.
Image
Because they are a thinking man's fish, I say.
Image
Image
Image

Earlier there was some salt stuff.
Image
Image
Image
Beach poons fuck off, hard.
Image
So do beach sharks
Image

Even before that, back in WA, there was coasting.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Surf tacos and a dry woodstove cabin are luxuries.
Image
Image
Image

Then it happens, right where it should. You try not to say damn when it doesn't run like it ought to. YP is stoked on anything and everything.
Image
But then, in the most glorious moss-draped green water trib creek run you can imagine...
Image
It happens, and the fish runs.
Image

I miss the place. As one does. It is magnificent.
Image

But there are other places.
Image
Image
Image
People to see.
Image
Image
Image
Fish to catch.
Image
Image
Snads to snad.
Image
Not bad.
