New Camera

I got a new waterproof camera for Christmas (Olympus TG-1) so I'll be doing a small review on this within the next week or so. Stay tuned.

Snow Fishing

A friend and I fished Spring Creek Wednesday. The fishing was slow, and the snow was fast. It was still a good time, but Turkey is a good dude, so I always seem to have a good time when we fish together. Those are our tracks. By the time I got home there was 8 inches of snow. It was interesting.

First IPA

I brewed my first IPA. Here it is...... Still green. Posting from the iPad sucks as far as sharing images. So I have to break this into a few different posts.

Update: After letting it sit an extra week, I tried it again last night and it was much better. I still have half a keg of it on tap so I'll know better after new years eve.

Too Long

Well it has been too long since my last post. I'm not sure if it's because I've been too lazy or just haven't had time, or a little of both but I'm going to try to get back into this.

I'm not going to write too much because there is too much to cover, so I'm just going to post some pic's, and give a brief summary. Since my last post I've:

Gone on a family vacation
Photo My Daughter Took

My Daughter and I Cruising Through OCMD

Done lots of fishing both warm and cold water

Nice Smallie Taken On Top

Beautiful Brookie In Fall Colors

Went to Montana and Wyoming where I fished, hiked, and camped. That trip was amazing, and deserves a few words.

We drove nonstop (never do that again) to get to The Bighorn River. There is nothing like this in the East, maybe the world. I had the most amazing fishing of my life there. I only took a dryfly off of my line twice and that was just to try something different. Caught the biggest fish of my life here within half an hour of being there. Then, it was, that a game of top that. Truly amazing....

The Take Out

Facing Down A Nice Bow

Fell For The Caddis
We left The Big Horn and headed to meet a friend in Yellowstone. On the way we stopped at a small brewery in Red Lodge. Good beer. I even brought some home.

Good Stuff

Last stop was Slough Creek. All I can say is wow. Just Wow!

We hiked into the third meadow (which is a pretty good hike), and on the way saw a grizzly mom and cub in this field.

Set up camp....
My Tent

And set to fishing....

Nothing Like This  Back Home
The Original Native.
After that we headed home. What a great trip.

I'll try to update more frequently, but I can't promise anything.
