Yesterday we had the privelege of attending the commissioning ceremony for one of our Eagle Scouts and a family friend. This young man recently graduated college and received his commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps. We have watched this young man grow through the years into what he has becomeContinue reading “2nd Lt. Miller…”
I would be remiss if I didn’t say “Congratulations” on a monumental milestone such as this. Hardy has been at the forefront of innovation for decades and decades, and is a household name worldwide. Their name is synonymous with quality. As with any company, they have endured the ups and downs of this industry andContinue reading “Congratulations to Hardy on their 150th Anniversary…”
I have wanted a 4wt fly rod to fill a gap in my fly rod collection. Sometimes a 3wt rod isn’t enough to cast certain flies and a 5wt is too much. I firmly believe in having the right tool for the job. I found this rod and reel on sale over at the LoopContinue reading “Loop Opti K2 9ft 4wt rod and a Loop Opti Creek reel…”
We were awakened last night by a strong thunderstorm and a heavy downpour. We debated about continuing with our plans to fish the river on Sunday. Needless to say, we headed to the river a little later than normal. As much to fish it, as to see how much it had changed from the recentContinue reading “River Trip 15MAY2022…”
I honestly believe that the sentimental aspect of fishing is what keeps me going. Sure, there are social media posts that have the “wow factor” that lights a fire in the imagination, but equally important is the memories of times and places and people I have fished with in the past. Trips with my fatherContinue reading “Sentimentality and Fishing…”
While we were over in Fayetteville last weekend, we stopped into Pack Rat Outdoor Store. While wandering around the store we came upon a Dometic display containing 12VDC refrigerators, chairs, blankets and a water jug. We kind of liked the design philosophy of the water jug. On the ride home we talked in depth aboutContinue reading “Dometic Go Water Jug 11L…”
I have needed a way to carry a full size spare tire on my Subaru for quite awhile and decided on this particular carrier. I chose this model due to the fact that it was constructed of Chrome Alloy steel tubing so in theory should be very durable. I wish I could carry a fullContinue reading “DirtCom Trail Swing Spare Tire Carrier…”
I wanted to take a moment and thank my wife for being an awesome fishing partner and more importantly, for being the backbone of our endeavours. She is the glue that binds the family and keeps things running smoothly. She is a very capable fisherwoman and is not afraid to bait her own hooks, handleContinue reading “Mrs. Velox Seeker…on Mother’s Day”
My local area does not have a fly fishing shop so we decided to drive over to Fayetteville Arkansas on Saturday morning to check out one we found online. With all of the rain we’ve had lately we knew the rivers would be un-fishable so this was our “Plan B.” The name of the establishmentContinue reading “Road Trip 07May2022…”
With all of the recent storms, tornados and rain we’ve had, we’ve been keeping an eye on the river levels. Some parts of the area were receiving 5 inches of rainfall per hour from a slow moving storm system. The pictures below will tell the story better than I can. Fortunately, as fast as thisContinue reading “The River is Rising…”
