Some of you may remember that the wife and I purchased a $60 permit so we could fish a local trout pond and extend our fishing season. After 6 outings to that area and only seeing one trout, we became fed up and started looking elsewhere. I could post a long rant but I won’t.Continue reading “Finally!…”
So a few months back I wrote a blog post about the Varivas line issues I was having. Upon reflection, shortly after posting I opted to delete that blog post. I decided that further testing was in order before laying all of the blame squarely at the feet of the line I was using. FastContinue reading “2022 Shimano Stella C2000SHG reel…”
I hope everyone had a great holiday and was able to spend time with family. We have a lot to be thankful for. We’ve been really busy with trying to get ready for winter. Bringing in hay, stocking up on horse and chicken feed, as well as filling the bird feeders. It has already snowedContinue reading “Happy Thanksgiving!”
Happy belated Veterans Day to all who served. Time is getting away from me, that’s for sure. Fall is upon us which means we will probably switch to trout fishing instead of fishing for river smallmouth. We have visited the local trout pond twice so far but haven’t caught anything as of yet. I’ve beenContinue reading “Still Kicking….”
After receiving some much needed rain Friday and most of Saturday, we awoke to a very light breeze and partly sunny skies. We decided to hit a local lake and fish for a bit. Last outing I was using Varivas Bush Trail VEP Nylon line with my Stella and was having some issues. My wifeContinue reading “Outing to Local Lake 30OCT2022…”
Back in early January, I set an arbitrary goal of 35 fishing trips for 2022. Looking back through my notes I met and exceeded that goal on Friday with 36 outings for the year. For me, that was quite an accomplishment with our busy schedules as well as the weather working against us. We hadContinue reading “Goal Met…”
I have a few days of vacation that I need to use before the end of the year so I decided that today was as good as any other day. The morning started off colder than I expected with it being 34F when I stepped into the river at 0730. I was wearing my usualContinue reading “River Outing 21 OCT 2022…”
The alarm went off at 0345 and I wasn’t having any of it. I ended up hitting snooze twice. We were out the door by 0515 and stepped into the river at 0720. The starting temperature of the air was 48F while the stream temp was 72F. Needless to say, we both wore hoodies thisContinue reading “A Much Needed Outing…”
It has been a hectic 2 weeks. The Mother-in-Law is back in the hospital so we are taking care of two households. Last weekend we completely revamped the wifes home office. Workloads have been steadily increasing for both of us as well. On a positive note, the weather has finally cooled off so I thinkContinue reading “Spinning Reels…”
The wife and I had been looking for a more compact stove. We didn’t want a backpacking stove per se, just something smaller than what we had been using. We came across a YouTube video about this type of stove so we decided to try it. We like the concept as well as the size.Continue reading “Gas One Spyder Stove…”
