It's been over a month since my last entry. To be quite honest this winter has really put a damper on both ambition and opportunity. I got out this weekend for a few drifts. Friday's positive temps were a blessing. It was nice to finally fish without the threat of frozen fingers and iced up guides. With the warm temps came the front end of the spring fishing crowds but a little leg work afforded me some solitude. It wasn't without effort but what started out as a bust turned into a refreshing day on the river with some very interesting critters to hand. I'm hoping the changing of the weather guard will muster up some inspiration but to be quite honest it's been a challenge lately to find the gumption to put pen to paper. I think it's a natural progression and I have certainly been here before but each time this funk arises I seem to dive a little deeper into the abyss. I liberated once of my collectables recently and the possibility of replacing it has ignited a small flame. My Instagram account has taken off and also fueled some ambition to get out there and capture some images. I have obtained some amazing new sponsors over the winter season that like my others I can stand behind without compromise. The Alaska trip is looming on the horizon and will certainly finish off the season on a high note before my Summer hiatus. Piscatorially I'm blessed but getting tired. Hoping a few well timed trips, some new acquaintances, and some old will get it all going again...
