a good sign

Two days left at Orvis and I used my last-gasp chance at our 50% off discount to buy a rod, reel, line, and some flies. I finally have time to fish. Next week, If the weather and time grants it, I will be in a river casting for native trout and telling you all about it. I now have the tools.

I've missed fly fishing so much...

You know how to do SO MANY THINGS! That's one I have no interest in learning. I will participate in the meal afterwards. You aren't one of those who does catch and release, are you?

Hey that's cool... Good thinkin grabbing it while ya still have the discount~

So, do you keep n eat, or release? If you eat, how do you prepare your fish?

With your carpel tunnel issues, make sure you score yourself a wrist strap (to avoid wristiness in your casting). Made a world of difference to my casting technique, and it might help with your wrist issues.

Oh, fly fishing is a great way to spend an afternoon. What a great way to celebrate your new lifestyle. Let us know what you catch. I think the wrist strap is a good idea too.

One of my childhood memories is of my grandfather fly-fishing for lake or brook trout and my grandmother pan frying them for lunch. Tasted like heaven and I have found fish that has come close but never the same. Enjoy!!

You're livin' the dream. Nevermind that I don't know how to fish or to cook what I catch... Can't wait to fish vicariously. :)

When we lived in New Mexico, we saw so many people in fly fishing. Would really love to live where I could learn.
