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.
