 Christmas break was cold and the cabin fever hit hard.  The one day I did get out on the trout stream I took a miss step and went in over my boots before I had a chance to stir something up.
 Now that I've got a new phone, Ryan was able to get a hold of me and we we're able to get together on the ice.
 Ryan had a few tip-ups out with some nice shiners on with no luck.  He did catch one nice bluegill and another small one. 
I broke the 2018 ice with this little pumpkin seed.  Bigger and better things to come in 2018!

A Winter Walk.

Susie laced up her Christmas gift from Beau and we were off on our 23rd  Christmas Eve Hike. 
 We awoke to a dusting of snow, got our chores done and we were off.
Ever since we made the move to the country, to the old school house
We've made it a point to get off our a$$ and do a hike.  No matter what the weather. 
 This year it was just the two of us along with the two dogs.  We're disappointed we can't be with Beau this year and we've already made plans to make sure that we can all hike together next year. 
Merry Christmas!

Out With The Boys In The Woods

 First stop, Wet a line.  One short strike.
 Stop!  Safety first.

 We sat around the fire in Issac's cabin
 We drank a toast to friends.
Another Namaste + Cheers GIVES BACK in the books! Huge thanks to everyone who came out to bend, have a brew and support the Bellevue Bread Basket. Cheers!
We enjoyed a sunset and a latti and drank a toast to loved ones.

 A quick run to the stream before the party
 I set Beau up with a pole with a poor real just to make sure he didn't catch too many
 One and done 
Still better than sitting around watching football.
Post party outing *50 plus and sunny
 Beau had his first native brown within five minutes.
 his second one was much larger.
And number three catch and release.

 I love this.... Just another Thursday night in Jackson Co.
 Three school teachers hanging in the hut.
 Go Hawks!
 After being weaned on kesslers
 you start to appreciate the finer things.
Thank you Clayton!
