|So Bass Pro has been good and bad, I have a list a mile long of fishing gear I want but on the plus side I have been getting ideas for new fly patterns to tie.|
|So after my first week was over a storm rolled in and they closed the store.|
|This is what we thought was the reasons we had no power for a week.|
|It turns out it was not the reason but did I mention we had no power for a week (okay a work week '5 days')|
|So I bought some materials I have never worked with and some that I just didn't want to send money on before and started tying flies by candle light.|
|While I was at work(with electricity) and it was slow I was leaning about some new fishing spots near where we live.|
|Then on about day 3 or 4 of no power Sarah was so sick of hearing out neighbors generators that she came to work and shopped in Patriot place, and we went out for dinner. I had a beer and felt smelly and stinky but refreshed.|
|There is my wife in front of Gillette stadium.|
|I found another pattern that I wanted to tie.|
|Then in the candle light I tied a couple along with another bass bug.|
|This is the other bass bug. It latched onto this candle (Oh and check out Sarah''s puzzle in the background it's the Atlanta skyline)|
|Then we got new furniture (because what else do you do with no power but move furniture).|
Somewhere around here we got power back and I finally unpacked my glass collection into our new hutch. This was rounding out the second week of my new job and I had remembered how hard it was to fish when you have a full time job. It is a funny trade working somewhere that I enjoy what I am doing versus actually fishing. So Sunday after church I borrowed John's kayak and hit the pond to chase bass.
|I did okay scoring two large mouths on a home made foam popper.|
|This was my good one. I caught it while standing on a rock near an island. It was really windy and with no anchor I was having a hard time setting up on fish.|
|Proof that it was a good fish.|
Another short coming from working a full time job again is that fact that I now see my wife even less then when I was home all day. Our lives do not match up any more so Monday we both had a day off and jumped at the opportunity to see some more sites we live near. So this past Monday we when to Plymouth to hang out and sight see a little.
|Thought this was cool.|
|We walked out on a jetty.|
|Saw lots of people using their boats|
|Walked in a cool historic section of town (by historic I am talking 1600's).|
|Sarah took a lot of great pictures and some of them can be seen on her blog (The Strength of Faith).|
Well that is what I have been up too these couple weeks. Sorry it was a lot of pictures but I thought that would be better then me babbling on for a couple internet pages. So I am going to try to be better about writing on my blog, and about fishing a little more. Lastly look for a give away very soon.
Thanks for reading
