Anticipation 03.15.12

I haven’t swung a fly in weeks, and the anticipation of this weekend’s fishing trip has been compounding exponentially. The boat and truck are organized, fly rods are packed, fly boxes are overflowing, yet I still tie more each night as Scott Howell’s Skagit Master II DVD spins indefinitely. I drive to work and wonder what the water levels will reside to, between meetings I finalize my gear list, and during lunch I check a half dozen weather reports…just to be sure.  This is my obsession; I wouldn't have it any other way.
Packing Up The Essentials


  1. All this anticipation talk and I forget my best streamer box...go figure.

  2. A steelhead guide friend of mine told me the fish are already spawning because of this crazy warm spell. Good luck this weekend...I'm waiting for the water levels to drop back a bit...Anticipation!
