I continue to be astounded at the numbers and THANK YOU one and all that read what I write.
When I started this blog on January 7, 2009 I had absolutely no expectations for it other than to let people know what I was using to catch fish.
I don't know what else to say. I am flabbergasted.
Now to ruin your day, I thought I'd put that first post here so you could see how bad my writing was and probably still is.
A New Year
I've lived in Northern California since 1975 and have mainly fished streams and rivers for trout. In 2007 I discovered lakes. OK, I know a lot of you fish streams and lakes and want to know what this guy knows that I don't. For some, probably nothing, for others maybe I can help them catch more fish. I figure if I put out here what I do and how I do it, it will help somebody have a nice trout dinner once in a while.
Last year I had a major surgery at the end of May. Before and after I did as much fishing as I could (I might note that I'm currently retired) until the snow hit in December. So for the time being, I'm doing some other stuff around the house that I've let go, we live on 5 acres in the mountains, but fishing is always on my mind. Did I mention I caught 130 trout and 1 Small Mouth Bass last year? A lot of the trout were catch and release. One can only eat so much fish. The Small Mouth Bass was a quirk. I was fishing for trout and it hit the lure. He got to go home too.
OK, I could go on and on, but then it wouldn't leave anything for another day. Just remember, "A bad day fishing is better than any day at work".
Well, maybe not so bad after all.
I promise to do my best to keep your interest and keep you coming back for more.
Thanks again, 250,000 times.
