How to increase fishing time with your wife and family

It was my anniversary this past weekend. We had a fabulous weekend. After the weekend, my wife said to me, well for pulling this off you have earned more fishing time. So for you fellas, wanting to earn some extra points with your wife and family and earn some extra needed fishing time. Do what I did. Surprise her with a quick over night stay at a bed n breakfast joint.

I knew our anniversary was coming up and instead of buying something for her, I went out side the box and arranged for some friends to watch our children for a night and took her down to a beautiful mountain bed n breakfast. The weather was absolutely perfect for end of October.

I had a dozen roses and a nice box of chocolates waiting. My boss gave us a really nice bottle of wine. So we were able to relax and enjoy our selves for a day and night. It was perfect. After the weekend, my wife told me that I have earned a ton of extra fishing time for pulling this one off.

So for you fellas, in need of some extra fishing time. Think out side the box, do something lovely for the wife and you to should earn extra time on the river!!1

Rising Cost

If you are a flytyer and enjoy the materials you get... Now would be a good time to stock up on your hackles, fur, feathers and hooks. We plan to see our favorite materials double in price come Jan 1. With the price of corn going up, you can expect to see the cost of hackles and feathers rise sharply. I know of 3 hook manufactures that will be raising prices as well Jan 1 due to manufacturing cost, steel, and oil. So, now would be a good time to stock up on your favorite materials before the prices raise.

Fall and a little new river

Woke up at 5ish on Saturday morning. Headed out the door to pick Todd up.

Got to Todd's and he was ready to go at planned time about 6:00 ish. Threw his gear in the truck and we were on our way headed west to a little new stream to both of us. About an hour and some later we arrived at the first pull out that looked liked the parking lot. But I was convinced this was not, so we decided to head further up the road. Next we came to an area we knew was the parking lot. So we jumped out and strung up the rods, waders and gear ready to go.

After we got ready and headed down to the river. Nice little river. I sat down to rebuild my leader and just kinda of listened to the river sing. Todd got him self all ready and headed up stream to where I was sitting. It took me a little bit to build my leader, but as soon as I was finished I got flies tied on and I was ready to go. I moved up stream just a tad about 100 or so hards away from Todd. Made my first cast and I moved a pretty nice sized trout. Worked up stream a bit and caught a few browns nothing of great size. I deciced that I wanted to head down stream and try some different areas.

As I walked down stream found some nice holes that held some very nice browns and bows. I was very surprised by some of the fish in this river. As we worked our way down river, we both manged to catch some nice fish. We fished here until about 2:30 before we decided to move to a different body of water to end the day.
