Fishing Five-Life Four


  • Attended Fly-fishing U and learned a great deal. So many basic things I had no idea about. Better prepared now!
  • Somerset Salt Water Show was a fun day. Knowledgeable Vendors, great clinics, lots of purchasing going on. I still see room for  improvement in one area I’ll touch upon in  the next blog.
  • The water is still cold. I did  get out last weekend for some FW fishing. Big zero but beautiful day.
  • Something exciting in the works – I will write about once details are worked out!!

2 quotes, one song, brief reflective thoughts

There are two types of waiting. There’s the waiting you do for something you know is coming, sooner or later like the 6:28 train, or a school bus, or a party were a certain handsome boy may be. And then there is waiting for something you don’t know that’s coming. You don’t even know what it exactly is but you’re waiting for it. You’re imagining it and living your life for it. That’s the kind of waiting that leaves a fist in your heart. ♥ Matine Murray

How delicate is life? How many times do we say we will not take things for granted?

I have made it a habit lately to really take notice of happy people.  Everyone gets so weighed down by all of life’s challenges.   Wherever I go I  am an observer. At the gym I see the most beautiful displays of love between elderly couples beside each other on treadmills and working machines. So gentle and loving.

And how do we treat each other everyday?

I viewed this blog recently and it brought me to that place of wonder and tears. That admiration some couples live up to in relationships.

Love is such a beautiful part of life if we just let it in … and extended it out. And remember it.

As the water warms up and the sky stays blue I hope you all have someone by your side to share a great fishing story, a starry night,  the gift of life. If it means something to you to have that kind of deep friendship and respect for someone, cherish it. Alone or searching… holding the tight fist in your heart. Waiting.  Life happens.

Patience …. like fishing.
