Well I am back home from the trip.  It was a great trip.
This trip was more than just about fishing. It was a chance for me to be alone with my thoughts and try to come to terms with losing my Sister Tracy this spring. It's amazing how you can really deal with your thoughts when alone on a river or in the woods without another person in sight. For the past few months since losing her I have been thinking about how terrible I have it for losing my Dad at only 52 yrs old, and now losing my Sister at only 51 yrs old. And I have been thinking how much I wish I could go back and relive the time we had together so I could make the most of it.
But I realized something while being alone the past few weeks. Even if I could go back and relive times with her and Dad, I couldn't make the time together any better than it already was. Because we were as tight and loving as a family can possibly be. So there would be no way to make our time together any better, because we already DID make the most of it when it happened.
So I have come to realize, I'm not unlucky for losing them so early in their lives. I'm actually an extremely lucky man to have been able to share such love with them to the fullest every time we were together. And I am very lucky to still have a wonderful Mother, great brother in law, and my Niece & Nephew. Whom I am glad to still call Family and look forward to many more years together with them all.
I still and always will have a huge hole in my heart where Tracy should be, but she will always be with me in one way or another till I myself am gone.

Nothing big at all but decided to spend the last evening on the river in a relaxing way and rather than pulling streamers just cast some dry flies and played with some pretty little trout.

Yeah it's always funny when a trout eats a streamer half its body size laugh.png
