Taxes, spring cleaning, garage cleaning, lawn care and the spring season….

30 Apr

After what seems to be a never ending winter to spring transition, I can’t wait to hit the water and do some real fishing.  Then life happens.

Captain and crew.  Yup. She's the captain.

I have a family, who love to be outdoors.  Well the little one doesn’t know it yet.  But I am sure she will like it when she gets out of the stroller. The rest of us love to be outdoors.  I consider it a privilege to teach my kids how to fish, mess with worms, be patient and set the hook.  I am sure casting practice will be a treat but we aren’t there yet. Right now we are busy targeting perch, and crappies. Doing a lot of shore fishing until I get the boat closer to the water.

It is tough to find the time to really fly fish when there are all the responsibilities of life.  So I make the time.  I have found a time slot that no one can touch.  Early mornings.  5 am to 7 am, at a local stream.  The fishing has been tough, but I figure this week will be perfect, temps over 10 degrees Celsius, even at night. Tomorrow morning will be perfect.

I know some folks don’t fish at 5 am.  And to those folks I say thanks, because I am going to have the river all to myself tomorrow morning.
