Happy Easter! We've had a nice weekend- went to church Saturday night and had an interesting breakfast casserole attempt today by yours truly. Well, in a show of Easter family togetherness, Powers & I accompanied Adam on our first flyfishing expedition. The ole pro, Adam, was an excellent teacher in the ways of casting and teasing the fish with the fly. Adam said I was a natural although I'm not sure how much of that is true & how much was said so that I wouldn't storm off in frustration (He knows me well). Regardless, when we drove to NorthEast, I caught a fish! Yes, it was a tiny steelhead who was hungry but still. Then Adam gently removed the fly from Cletus's mouth (Yes, I named him) and Little Cletus swam away.
I had on a cute flyfishing outfit but I had to cover it with my fleece, sadly. I'm pretty sure that's the main point of flyfishing, right? Cute outfits and arts and crafts... err, I mean fly-tying. I will say this: I think that I'll enjoy fllyfishing a lot more when it's above 32 degrees. Maybe I'll even bring a lawn chair and a book! But it was beautiful out there and I loved spending time with my fish-loving husband and fish-smelling dog.
