When you come home after an awful day of work...

And your three year old asks you to go fishing, it instantly makes everything better again. He set the hook and landed it.

It's been a while

I feel like it's been ages since I actually posted something. The truth is, I've just been busy with life. Been working a lot, and spending a lot of time with the kids. I haven't even sat down at the vise in about two weeks. I've also been busting my ass with the exercise and I've managed to take off 43 lbs since March. I've even got my 5K time down to 33 minutes (I know that still sucks, but I'm trying!)

That's not to say I haven't been fishing. The smallmouth fishing in the creek behind my house has pretty much been spectacular. I've pulled in quite a few hogs in the past few weeks, almost all of them on big foam dry flies, which makes it more fun. I haven't gone to an actual trout stream in over a month, and to be honest, I don't really miss it. Smallmouths and big panfish have been more than enough fun for me.

So yeah, maybe I did miss some nice hatches, but I don't mind. I'm heading out for father's day to try and hit a sulphur hatch, and maybe I'll bring along my new Go Pro which hasn't even made it out of the box. I'll try to get a post-trip report together Sunday night.

Until then, feel free to jam out on this.
