For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form

This is a first. My usual cup of coffee is "Nantucket" blend by Green Mountain, but we had a coupon and the item was on sale so a box of "Eight o Clock" Colombian Blend was purchased. After trying several cups I found it to be quite good. The real test came this morning. I needed to see if it could get the job done, the job of bringing some life to this incoherent being. Well this is my second cup and it has worked fine. Perhaps I can continue this post now.
The William Joseph AMP pack. This is an item I picked up on sale. Its small size and light weight make it perfect for those nasty hikes into those thin blue lines. Its a chest pack, but I carry it as a sling pack. It has ample storage for all the necessities. I've only used this pack twice in actual combat but will test it much more often as the season progresses.
Anyone who follows this blog knows my fondness for the Ausable Bomber. I'll fish this fly at any time, place, weather condition, or season of the year. And while fishing this fly since January first of this year I have not brought a fish to hand yet. The fly did however bring several fish to the surface, something it does well. Yesterday it achieved success. My first fish to hand on the Bomber.

This is a first. I took some red and green peppers and onions, I seasoned them well and fried them 'til tender. I then took some venison, sliced it very thin then cut it into strips, seasoned and fried quickly. Placed the mixture into a soft taco and enjoyed.
