After the deception, lies, and fleecing of America by that little rodent who goes by the name of Punxsutawney Phil (I'll call him Punky for short). It seems that Punky has finally unleashed Spring upon us after all his tom-foolery and media shenanigans. That rodent really needs a new agent, anyways I am watching the feet of snow melt down to inches and walking around creeks of snow-melt in the street and driveway to get the mail while wondering if I should take my motorcycle out of storage this week. Spring is here.
I will not be joining my buddies this Spring for the annual Big Horn river midge trip due to conflicts with school. However, that does not mean that the Big Horn river or the infamous Cottonwood Camp will elude me. Nope, it just means that I jump on an alternative opportunity that should be just as fun and adventurous.
This year, over my summer break I'll be heading out on a trip with the guys from The Fly Angler to Montana to fish the Hopper Hatch (or whatever else the trout may be feasting on at the time). Plans are loose at the moment, but that will remedy itself as we get closer to August. So far, I know I am going, I have the vacation approved by the bosses, and I'll be floating with Peter and Doug. Heck, that's a pretty good "plan b" for me. :)
Now, where did I put my cigar lighters, wading boots, turkey calls, motorcycle helmets, homework notes, and........or maybe I'll jus take a quick nap.
Wishing you a genuinely Happy Easter weekend.
