Shopping, Cookie Monster, and Trout

I know, random blog title, right? I also know that I owe you guys one more contest. I will get it online tomorrow, I swear. It was just a busy day.

I started off with some Christmas shopping and that meant stopping by The Classic Fly Fisherman to get a gift card for my stepdad. That also meant buying a ton of fly tying stuff at a bargain.

Then, despite my oldest having a little vomiting problem this morning, we ventured to Sesame Place. It was insanely packed with people, but the kids had fun. They had a holiday parade and tons of Christmas lights. After all the CT tragedy stuff, I really needed some time with my kids today.

After changing diapers, wiping runny noses, dodging strollers, and fighting traffic, I was kidded out. I needed a release. I grabbed the 5 weight and darted to the stream around 9pm. No carp, but a trout was willing to cooperate.


  1. Keep the kids close. A great way to spend the day!

    1. Definitely. Dude, I loved the pen and ink trout with the colored streamer in it's mouth. beautiful piece.
