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.

Spring Fishing

The other morning I was gearing up for the spring steelhead fishing.

I am not sure how much fishing I will be able to do this spring...or even want to for that matter...

...At least on the rivers.

We have pretty much decided to get a dog and I am thinking Apr/May. I have quite a bit of time off then to train the thing.
My wife is not to cool with the idea ...or my youngest.
..But it has been a constant campaign with Ella and I just can't come up with enough reasons to deny her this.
I am sure it will all fall on me...but I accept that....I'd do anything for that kid.

She had a project at school recently where she was tasked with building a car.
Here is what she came up with. lol

If/When we get a dog I don't think I will let it drive the car.


Gerry is all ramped up about the salmon Derby and so is Owen. That should be fun.

Ella and Avery asked if they could help me tie up some spawn sacs. Saved me a ton of time and they get a real kick out of it.

Owen Not so much.

The weather has had a real spring feel to it lately and Brian and I have managed to plan a fishing trip...just in time for the temps to plummet.


Oh well there is always the wood stove and Creemore...and the pizza ...and the Venison morel sausage..and the fresh air and the peace and quiet...etc...



  1. That roe pic is awesome. That's a framer!

    Tell your workers to tie up more pink bags though. At least for your trips over here ;)

  2. A little late on this as I know you are already at the cabin however..... that is quite a roe bag production.

    Get the dog! I was the only one that did not want to add to the family via a dog 9 months ago and now he comes to me first. LOL

  3. Funny you should say that JB as "salmon dink pink" saved my ass today at tippy...story to follow.

    Gil...The dog is my next thing. Gonna start looking hard over the next few weeks. I am really looking forward to it.

  4. I can't wait until you call me bitchin about all the hot steamers your dog is dropping on the rug!
