As this year comes to a close I can say for the most part it was a good year. I had a profound change happen to me in early November. In a short few minutes I experienced the bad and the very good in our society. And it changed the way I now look at my life.
My fishing outings have been great, lots of new flies used, but I seem to stay with the old familiar patterns. I found myself fishing dry flies, more and more, where in the past almost alway's the streamer was tied on first.
So as I close out 2010, my wife Jeanette and I are looking foward to a tradition of ours that go's back many years. Every New Years Eve we select a restaurant and go out and to enjoy a "Burger", with all the trimmings. We will arrive at around 5pm, place our order and enjoy this special Burger. We come home and have a beverage of choice, watch the TV for a while and turn in for the night. Jeanette has to be at work at 4am so there are not to many late nights. This has worked for us so very well.
As for the fishing report for the last outing of 2010, I would love to show a photo of a beautiful wild trout. That did not happen. I had only one hookup on that day, and the fish never came to hand. It was still a special and memorable day.
