Elsewhere in cyberspace...

I've had to take a few weeks off from blogging to get caught up with other real life responsibilities... and now is the time of that year that the fishing starts to heat up and the snakes begin crawling out of hibernation- two things that are serious distractions for the fishing snake guy.

I've had a guest blog post appear on the Pelican Products blog. It's all about snake safety in the outdoors. It's got a few of the same highlights as my popular "Springtime is Snake Time" post... but I toned it down a bit for a more general audience. Here is a link to the post- "The Return of the Snakes: Common Sense and Safety." Please go check it out, and leave your comments while you're there.

If any of you follow the Fly Fishing Ventures blog, you may have recognized a familiar face featured in the latest installment of "Women in Fly Fishing." Kelly is really the first of the WIFF who is a warmwater fly fisher. I just want to say "Thanks" to Rebecca for featuring my favorite fishing partner and showing some love for the dark warmwater side of our sport.

Big fish of the day... and the one that got away

Today it was my turn to catch the big fish of the day...

while Kelly actually got skunked for the first time in a long time.

Sadly, the real big fish of the day broke my line and swam away with the lure pictured above in its mouth. Based on the three seconds that I was hooked up, I think it would have challenged Kelly's rainy day bass for the biggest we've ever caught from the creek...

but I guess we'll never know.
