I'm Back!!!!!!

 

...well working on it!!

 

 

Had to get back here or go nuts........I truly missed this place.

 

Unlike some folks I know here at home. I have never been one for "over emtionalizing" my illnesses or injuries. That said..I want to thank all of you for your prayers... and especailly my good friend Pat Carrol for all of the support.

 

It has been a long road and I still have a alot of therapy yet ahead.

 

Will ........get better soon too buddy!!

 

Fishing season is on!!!

 

Maine opened up almost two weeks early...........thanks to Gov. Baldacci!!

 

It's 55 to 60 degrees here...summer is on!!!

 

I am staying out of the swaps ...accept for the Mystery boxes...for a little while yet. Still having trouble getting comfortable at the bench.

 

 

THANK ALL OF YOU.......God Bless

good having you back, brent. hope you and will are able to get back to good health.

 

not sure what is happening with the 'mystery boxes", news and updates have been scarce!!

 

mother nature threw a little scare into this neck of the woods last sunday.a 7.2 earthquake can sure get one's attention.my wife and I happened to be on the highhway , and didn't feel a thing!!! most people said it seemed to rock and roll for a good 45 seconds or so , that will cause the tummy to swirl !! it was centered about 100 miles from here, which really isn't very far.]

 

have a good one

Glad to see you back Brent :clapping: .

 

Hey Pat, Up at Huntington 2ft of snow fell on Easter and 2 more last Sunday/Monday. They've had over 360 inches of snow this year. That's more than 30-feet. Sierra at Tahoe has had about 40-feet as well as Mammoth. Yosemite is getting about the same amount. The Merced River has gone from about 750cfs to 2500cfs in the past couple of weeks. The snow pack is going to provide for some good run-off. That should really make the falls spectacular. Fall fishing should be great this year :yahoo: . Don't know if you're familiar with this web site, http://www.yosemite.org/vryos/, but they have live web cams of Yosemite Vally and other parts of the Park. I'm always checking it out.

had a message from AFtier today, "mystery box 3" is making its way across the country, heading for missouri!!

c.teeter will get his first chance to check out a nice selection of flies. I would venture to say, he will be pleasantly surprised!!

Planted a few tomatoes last weekend, so that means spring is here!! Have you been able to get any fishing in, hopefully the weather is starting to cooperate?

 

have a good one

Did a little fishing yesterday, for about twenty minutes during lunch. Other than a tree branch I didn't catch a thing.
