Forgotten but not gone......
I've thought about "pulling the plug" on this blog for quite some time, but haven't been able to muster the strength to press the delete button. Admittedly, this blog thing has been a mediocre effort on my part. It started as a whimsical, just for the hell of it sort of thing, without purpose or direction. It's continued on that path to nowhere. And, while this blog isn't a major contribution to mankind, there's actually a piece or two that I consider passable. Scratching out a post requires some thought and effort. Most bloggers put a little, or maybe a lot of themselves into their blogs. So, it will stay, for a while anyway.
Truthfully, I've started dabbling with Instagram. Yes, late to the party as usual. A different medium for sure, perhaps more photo oriented. Quicker and easier to post? Maybe. Better? Who knows? As if a guy needs another way to screw around and waste time.
Regardless, I'm about to reach the two year mark of this retirement gig. I can unequivocally say that while I've fished a lot, I still haven't fished enough. There's days that I've fished well, while on others I could barely knot a fly to my leader without it breaking off. I've caught more "quality fish" in venues new to me. I've also lost more "quality fish". Again, most likely due to the knot thing or some evil conspiracy. I have spent too much time at home doing maintenance and "projects" or, who knows what. I've concluded that if I'm not out fishing, then I'm probably just wasting time. The solution?
