Playing with the Locals...A (very) Short Weekend TR
My to-do list around home has been getting longer instead of shorter here recently. It seems that everytime I accomplish something and scratch it off the old list , there are three more things waiting to take their place in line. This isn't anything new to me , I've been there before and will likely be there again. Hell , what am I saying , I'm gonna be there for the rest of my god-given life at the rate I'm getting things accomplished these days!
So needless to say I was more or less forced into servitude around the house this past weekend instead of doing what I really wanted to do , which we all know is fish.
I did manage to make it out to the water twice while I was off , one trip over to a local lake not far from the house (what was supposed to be a run to QT for some gas for the weedeater turned into a two hour fishing expedition) and a nice Sunday drive with the better half that just happened to put us in the vicinity of a body of water I'd been wanting to check out...and yes , it was a total coincidence that I'd packed two flyrods and a bag of tackle along!
Both places showed me a little love and I was able to play around with a few of my favorite warmwater residents. While it wasn't non-stop fishing action by any means , when you know the rest of your day is going to be spent trimming ornamental grasses and spreading mulch in flower beds you tend to be ecstatic over the little things like a few minutes of fishing.
Here's to less lists and more time on the water.........
