Step two...

The next phase of online self indulgence.
I made the mistake of monkeying around with my original BLOG located here and ruining it.
I am useless.
I am starting over..and here we go.

Thar She Blows

It was like a hurricane in there..

The only thing that can really shut the float fisherman down is wind...and it almost did today.

Well to be fair...a VETO from the warden can be a deciding factor as well.

Morin slammed em yesterday but I had commitments... Tis the season.

Owen had a Christmas play at school and he would've been really bummed if I'd missed it.

 I love fishing and I don't know if we'll have many more days like yesterday.

By the sounds of it the water was prime and the unseasonably warm temps had the fish all worked up.
I kept getting text messages from dipshit as the day went on...sigh...

Oh well, family first and I was really glad I got to see Owen perform.

He was amazing. The kid loves drama and volunteers for every part that comes along. I hope he never loses his enthusiasm.

So I was left to pick up the scraps today.

...and I struggled.

It was almost impossible to get a decent drift today because of the wind.

Add to that some fast dropping crystal clear water and it made for a pretty grim morning at times.

The fish I did get were fantastic however. Some real brutes kicking around this time of year.

There are also some real shitheads kicking around judging by all the Busch Lite beer cans and other garbage lying on the ground.

Morin gave me a heads up with that catastrophe and I picked up some and hiked it out but the real kicker was a beautiful dime bright hen that had been gutted for skeins then left on the bank.

What a waste...really wtf is wrong with people?

The older I get the more I realize there is no fighting this type of shit...its sad..but this is the world we live in.

...right up there with me trying to explain to my 8 yr old daughter why somebody would walk into a school and shoot  a bunch of innocent children..

Whatever....I refuse to let it ruin my mood.

It was a great day...cleared my head and recharged the batteries.

The Big fella in the red suit will be here in just a matter of days and the kids are all fired up.

I can't wait.


  1. Looks like you had a great day. I got the law handed to me or I would have been out today. Instead, the kitchen is painted a nice warm "chocolate smoothie" just in time for the big gathering.

    Right on Gene! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

    1. Merry Christmas to you too Gil. Hope the family has a great holiday and good luck in the new year.

  2. Well you found some and some nice ones at that...and more than anyone should need!
    Good day in my books. Nice to see you are keeping the "I take shit pictures" theme alive. Christ, tell that woman you need a camera for
    I had typed up a huge rant about the human garbage that exists in this world today and how they deem in necessary to shit on everything that is entirely pure and whole and how they would rue the day they did so in my presence blah blah blah blah blah...I figured it would only serve as evidence in court later on so I deleted it. One thing though...
    When I imagine them on fire it makes me feel good...Does that make me a bad person?

  3. No means you have found my god.

  4. BTW...these pics are better are they not??...I even tried to gay up some shots with some different angles just like you... I had to stop though because my anus was starting to lube up and I began whistling show tunes..

  5. Self lubing...hmmmmm...and when you say whistling show mean out your ass right? You are almost there young Jedi, you are almost there.

    Oh yeah and our God need to man the f*ck up and start getting old Testament on these Pariah!

  6. Good post. I especially enjoyed the "dipshit" comment. Hahaha.
