So very sorry to hear of your loss, Steve. You and your family are in my thoughts.

In Topic: The meaning of. Mother's day

15 May 2019 - 08:12 AM

In Michigan, Mother's Day means that trout fishing has officially taken over top billing in most anglers' minds, over the steelhead fishing that has dominated since the previous November. 8-weights, and chuck-and-duck rigs have been put away for another year, and the 4- and 5-weights are the order of the day. Depending on what the weather's been like, the Dark Hendrickson mayflies are usually either done or almost done hatching. (This year has been cold and wet, so they're just now hitting their stride.) The Light Hendricksons and Sulphurs are on deck. Caddis and stoneflies are filling in the gaps; more and bigger ones in evidence every day as the weather warms. With another couple of weeks of decent weather, we'll be seeing Gray Drakes, then later Brown Drakes and finally the much-ballyhooed Hexagenia hatch to round out June and take us into the dog days. At that point, some switch to terrestrials, some wait for high water and throw streamers, and still others--like me--turn their attention to smallmouth bass.

It's a wonderful time to be alive! :)

So sorry to hear you're laid up and hurting, Nick, that is a rough way to go. Wishing you the speediest and most effective possible recovery. 

Not to get all corny about it, but sometimes the universe sends us a not-so-subtle message that it's time to make a change. We know you're up to it and will be pulling for you.

That's about as good as it gets right there--thanks for sharing Flytire. 

In Topic: Father's day wish list

On Father's Day I just like it if my sons (now 17) consent to spend some time with me, maybe go out to breakfast with my wife and I. Sometimes I can get one of them to go fishing with me, which is about the best gift I could ask for.
