When Nothing Is All I've Got.....





Most intelligent people of some means who dwell in northerly latitudes find respite by leaving.  You know who you are.  I won't mention names.  Dummy me, I retired with the intention of passing a peaceful winter by exercising my three weight.  Instead, the wife and I spent the last six weeks rearranging the snow around the house.  Is it possible to wear out a snow shovel?  Yes it is.  We wore out two.  And, how much gas can one burn up in a snow blower?  Stayed tuned for the answer, corporate oil company accountants are feverishly tallying the total on their respective abacuses.

So, this cartoon is all that I've got to offer.  Pretty feeble.  But, what can one expect after six weeks of no fishing?

  1. This cartoon hung on a wall at work for years. I liberated it on my last day. Don't know the cartoonist, but I appreciate the humor. Some days I think that the fish really do get together and conspire against us anglers. One can easily substitute any commonly used trout fly for the bait depicted in the cartoon.

  2. Great old cartoon, Les, with a silver lining: you'll have plenty of water for the summer.

    1. Hopefully plenty of water this summer Walt. Probably plenty by next week too when the temps hit fifty!

  3. I resemble that remark. It is coming though. Mud season. Fishing. The high sun season. You're almost there.

    1. Jim, not looking forward to the mud. Best thing about snow in the yard is that the dogs stay clean. Unfortunately, cold and snow means they're indoors, occupying furniture, shedding, mooching, etc. It's a no-win, except for the critters.

      Happily, next weeks forecast should get the midges going!
