Another great day of casting



After a very long hiatus and the long awaited arrival of spring my inner demons have started to have their bi-annual conversations in my head. Pretty sure Dejon from Chrome on Chrome is responsible having reported a 30+ fish day to me but I'm not one to lay blame. ;0) Once awoken there is no stopping them. They start discussing the cons. Then they weigh their options. They begin to deliberate short term vs long term forecasts. They start justifying fuel costs, and on and on until logical reason has no chance of prevailing. The resultant was a mid-week vacation day and a road trip north. Lets just say it was another great day of casting ;0)
Glad to get a decent drift in and nice to be on the water again. I don't think it hit the +10C temps the weatherman was bragging about. I think it was more like -10C. I actually had to de-ice every 10th drift. Oh ya, have I ever mentioned how much I love wind and slush? But doesn't everyone? Funny thing is the demons are quiet. For now...

That's a bummer. But until last weekend that pretty much summed up my last 2 months of fishing:)

I guess that's why it's fishing and not catching :0)
I do indeed look forward to the catching however ;0)
Soon enough I guess. I also look forward to reading your next blog entry Dejon...Hint Hint Hint

Ah well...I have been there ...
Sometimes you just got to burn a vac day and see for yourself.
Could've been worse.
I spent the day ,half dead with a case of the walking crud, searching 60+ trucks.....most of whick smelled rather distinctly of A$$.
Woe is me.

Gene,
Good perspective :0)
Do you go to work or are you paying some twisted retrobution to the devil for a sinful past ;0)
"And you shall be smote and smittem by the A$$ of 60 men" Geesh that sounds like a biblical punishment. I'll take casting anyday.

P.S. for Christ's sake take an tylenol and get better so we can go a castin.
