Nearly perfect trip!

Today I fished with a friend from Maryland and his family. He and I fished together until 10 Am and then were joined by his wife daughter and son. The fishing first thing was excellent breaking fish everywhere and we caught a bunch. My only regret was leader material that broke on a couple of big fish. It would have been nice if he had landed a great big fish. After all Maryland gives most of these stripers there start in life it seems only fitting that someone from their home state should get their very best showing.

Stood up

It happens once or twice a season. Someone makes a reservation and then does not show up. Today is one of those days for me. It was to be the first nature watching trip of the summer. Luckily I have a ton of work that needs to be done in the office and around the house. Still; I always wonder what the person that asked me to be ready for them and then simply does not show up is thinking, do they think that I do not notice that they are not here? The answer is to make sure that I get a deposit but most of my clients become friends and I am sometimes lulled by that friendship.

The new LL Bean hunting catalog arrived in today's mail and there on page 99 as promised is my smiling face. I’m quoted about how swell a pair of boots is but they changed my words some. At any rate I’m sure that it will bring comments over the next few weeks and I am enjoying my 15 minutes of fame. You can order a catalog of your very own at
