On and on...

Tying new patterns, stockpiling gear, marking up maps and countless nights staring at satellite images. Campfires, marathon floats, roadtrips, rope swings and leaky tents. PBR, PBJ and gas station sandwiches. Chasing new fish, hitting new water and making new friends. Busted rods, blown out lines, peeled back felt and pinholes. Early morning topwater explosions, late night spinner sips, mud clouds and crushing streamer grabs. Long weekends, day trips, marathon floats and after work carp sessions.

Though it's only a short list, writing it all down is really all I can do to sum up what the past few months have been full of for myself and several others around me. I've been putting things off here lately in favor of trying to get on the water whenever the opportunity presents itself and if you can't understand that...well, then you probably shouldn't be reading this stuff.

To keep it short, fishing has been up and down much like the weather. Some days have been better than others, but nearly all have been memorable. We've been scouting new water and hitting the familiar stuff pretty regularly as well. Hopefully, you have found some time to get on the water recently and if you haven't, then you shouldn't be reading this stuff right now, you should be fishing. Get out, find some new water, remember some old water. It won't be long before we are dusting off the snow shovels, so get while the gettin' is good!
