Happy Thanksgiving!!

The above picture is a couple of years old (and a reprint) but it still makes me smile. Nothing says Thanksgiving like pumpkin pie and family.
I don't know about you but this holiday season has crept up on me and I'm still struggling with the idea that it's already Thanksgiving. It seems like just yesterday that I was floating down my favorite stream in shorts and a pair of sandals flinging streamers for smallies. Now we're already moving into the season of Christmas lights , snow shovels and my favorite pasttime this time of year...chunking meat for big brown trout. Between work projects , weather and the Holidays I havn't been out near as much as I'd like but I have high hopes of sitting at the tying bench, filling the streamer box and then getting back out on the water after the holiday.
On top of wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving , I'd like to take a minute to thank all of you who follow the blog and take the time out of your busy schedule to see what Joe and I are up to. This year I surpassed 100,000 views, something I would have never believed possible when I started this whole thing. With so many blogs out there it amazes me that folks wade through all of those choices and a few still end up here at HighPlainsFlyFisher.
When I sit back and look at this crazy , messed up world we live in I realize just how much I have to be thankful for and how lucky I am. Here's hoping that each of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving...eat too much , re-connect with family and friends and then take a long overdue nap on the couch. Joe and I will catch you on the water after the tryptophan wears off....
