Another year bites the dust

2013 was one heck of year. Lots of things went on my life but I came out of it stronger for it. Did not fish as much as I would have liked this year but still more than a lot of people so I can’t complain. Lots of day trips this year. My year started off with taking 4 of middle school kids on an overnight camping/fishing trip. The guys had a blast and a few fish were caught. Did a couple trips in the Williams area┬áto a few small ponds that hold some nice fish. Spent a couple days fishing for pike at Upper Lake Mary. In June I spent 5 days in Colorado mainly fishing the Roaring Fork but spent some time on the Pan and the Colorado as well. This fall I did a couple one day trips to Silver Creek up by Show Low which was a nice change of pace. My wife Beth and I also spent a week in Canada which was amazing. 2014 is already looking better as I have a trip planned to Pyramid Lake up by Reno with some great friends, hopefully some time up in Yellowstone and several trips to the white mountains. I also want to check out some of the small streams in AZ as well. Lake Pleasant is calling my name for striper action also. Let’s hope we can get a good snow pack this year to recharge our streams and lakes. Fly tying was up this year as well, as the economy seems to be improving slightly, so spent more time at the vice this year, which is a good thing. My fly boxes are bulging and lots of orders went out this year. Here are some pics from this year. Thank you all for your support.
