Spring Break 2016

I took my annual March vacation last week, my own personal Spring Break so to speak. Nine days without the headaches of the normal 9:00 - 5:00 grind is always a welcome thing, but even more so if at least some of that time is spent on the water. I was fortunate enough to spend most of the week hanging out in a rented cabin with a small group of family and friends doing what guys normally do on extended fishing trips...eat, sleep, fish...repeat the process.
The weather was nicer than average for early March, the streams I floated all fished exceptionally well and my evenings were spent hanging out with folks I enjoy sitting around a fire with...what else could a guy ask for??

  2. Thanks Jim...it was a very enjoyable week spent floating and fishing. Usually early March feels more like Winter than Spring but this year it was practically early Summer out there!!

  3. Jeff, I'm not getting enough High Plains Fly Fisher. The water looks great, the fish healthy and the bbq yummy. You live in heaven don't you?

    1. I here ya Howard. Just the other day I was telling the wife that I just wasn't getting enough time to go fishing. Between a job, work around the house and spending some free time with the wife it's just not working out...we need more days in the week or something.
      This was an enjoyable trip for sure, all the locals wanted to come out and play.

    1. It is Ben. There are a lot of different boats on the market that will suit about any need, they are a great tool for getting away from the popular accesses and getting into some better fishing.

  5. Beautiful trip. "That River", if my guess is accurate, is a real gem when it's not crowded. Planning to hit it this spring with my new kayak.

    1. I totally agree Dave., if only it would stay that serene all year long. Give me a shout if you need a floating partner...my arm can generally be twisted into another fishing trip!

    1. Thanks. You hit the nail on the head with that statement, after a long Winter it was just nice to enjoy some good weather with good friends and get a little fishing in.
