A day on the water with Bill .
An escape from the office to enjoy all that is spring. Temperatures in the mid 50's with sunshine. You just cant go wrong.

The fishing was slow with few signs of life but I was in my glory just being there. As I said before, it has been a long winter and today did all I had hoped it would.
I am a rejuvenated man.

And of course the opportunity to share a day with a friend made it all the better. Bill allowed me an opportunity to test run a CTS and I was not disappointed.
Very nice. Very very nice.

We ended the day promising to make a date for a follow up visit to the streams and expressing our thoughts on the quality of the outing and the weather.
Until later and keep Japan in your thoughts...............

The longest winter ever...................

Well today the tributaries both big and small are up high and moving fast with all this rain and melt. I am hoping for a few opportunities to get out this month with some old friends in hopes of getting some of the rust off my game.

This winter has been mentally punishing to me for some reason which I can't explain.
It just has a done a number on me. I spent an hour or so this afternoon sitting in the truck just staring away at the muddy Catt attempting to recount the sounds,sights, and smells of spring.

I miss birds chirping and fresh spring air but what I miss most is bullshitting with the guys on the stream. You can't buy that camaraderie.

That shared excitement of catching fish that brings us all back to being little boys filled with adventure and wonderment.

Looking forward to a little steelhead therapy.

until later my friends.............
