My favorite time of the year may finally be here.
We’ve had some 75-80 degree days over the last 2 weeks, and I could not be happier. Happier because it’s warming up, which means more fishing and getting outdoors. It also means it’s time to get the garden in shape and start finally growing some grub.
Of course, Spring also means it’s time to put the lawn mower on a 4 day rotation, which is never much fun. Nonetheless, I think Spring may actually be here and I’m pretty stoked for that.
So what’s on tap for Spring? Hopefully a lot of fishing, and fishing some new waters that I haven’t been to in quite a while, or ever.
I have vowed that this Spring will be the one in which I fish more for bass on the fly. I say it almost every year, and every year, it fails to pan out. I usually hate to give up my treasured trout streams in search of other species, but maybe this season will be different.
I’ve also been studying some maps recently and I am on a quest to find a few new runs of water to try out. I’m often surprised at just how many small streams are in nestled in this area if I just spend a few minutes looking for them. I don’t know any fly fishing geeks that will pass up a little blue lining every now and again, and I am certainly in that boat.
Spring also means that the wife and I can get outside with the little one. She is just about to turn 2 years old and it’s pure chaos. One thing is for sure though, she loves to be outside just as much as her daddy, and I can’t wait to finally get a fishing rod in her hand.
So needless to say, I am really looking forward to Spring and what is just around the corner. I hope your neck of the woods is thawing out as well and you’re just as stoked about it as I am.
