6/27 - 6/28...."Summertime Weekend Slumming"
Nothing too exciting over the past weekend for me , I'm so far behind on chores around home that I still have camping equipment piled up in my garage from the last trip to the Current River. That being said, most of my time the last two days was spent playing catch-up and taking care of those everyday things that get neglected while we try to make a dime. It's not good for my sanity (or the well being of those around me!) to go too long without a fishing fix so I managed to get away a couple of times over the two days and throw a little line around. No exotic locales or fish laden destinations this week, just a morning of carping on the community mudhole with minimal success and some pond hopping to play with a few gills and largemouth. Summer time looks like it's here to stay for a while which for me means trading in the flyrod for a swimsuit and a cooler of beer and hanging at the lake on some weekends. As I sit here and look at the outdoor thermometer which reads 97 degrees in the shade that doesn't sound like such a bad thing actually. Not enough time spent on the water the last couple days for much of a report so here's a little montage of pics from the weekend to tell the story...kind of an ode to Summer.
Hope everyone has a safe and fish filled 4th of July....me , the swimsuits packed and the beers on ice!
