Tying flies

   So I've picked up this hobby.... I'm learning to tie flys for fishing
It really is relaxing and engage's the mind. The creation is fun. There are so many patterns and different styles of the same bug. 
Here's a couple flys I've tied that are decent.  They need work but will catch fish.
Be safe friends.

Chatting w/ Mom

   I was chatting with my Mom this afternoon. She is going to South Africa on a mission trip at the end of the month.  Im pretty proud of her for going, its really stepping out of her comfort zone. She's never been out of the country.  Well my parent's did drive to Alaska for their honeymoon.
   She was ssy that they were having some communication troubles with the hosts in S. Africa. Them not calling back in what we consider a timing manner. Then it was explained to the church that the African people don't use watches or really use clocks.
   They live in the moment. I really like that.  We are always rushing here or there. Saying well we have 3 hrs to have fun then its time for dinner or whatever. Where as them is living in the moment.  If your having fun then stay and have fun. No time limits.
Be safe and live in the moment.

Date night

   My bride and had date night last night after a day at the lake. So nice to just sit down over dinner and relax, talk. The couple sitting next to us at the restaurant was celebrating 64 years of marriage.  Thats pretty darn amazing!
     We spent the afternoon at the lake playing around. Ruby and Sharon stacked rocks and Ruby practiced back floats, and throwing rocks into the water.
I got to do some flyfishing.  So that was fun. I caught a little yellow Perch. Ruby thought that was cool and wanted to pet it. 
It was a really good day spent with my girls.

Long time posting

So its been a looong time since I've posted anything. I don't know what to write. So I guess I'll give an update on the most important people in my life. Sharon and I went fishing/picnicking at the local lake. Ruby had a blast! We are learning how to fish together. I've only fished mountain streams so lake fishing is totally different. I got this great picture of my girls. I love Ruby's confidence that we were gonna catch something.

Just to give an idea of how strong willed and fun Ruby is. We told her she could not go swimming, we have a little kiddy pool that she splashes around in. This is how we found her 2 minutes later.

Yes, thats the dogs water bowl. Lol
Me standing in front of my work truck. I call her Big Nose K.

We had a great family reunion in July. Lots of fun! Sure great to catch up and get the kids together. We bbq'ed and lit fireworks over the river at my Uncles river shack.

The view from the shack.

Well I'm going to get back to work.
Take care until next time.

I enjoy fishing. It's a great way to relax. I'm learning to flyfish. I've only caught 2 fish this way but it's fun. Now that we live so close to the North Platte river. I want to really get into it. It's a great way for us as a family to do something together. The other day we went to Casper and bought Ruby a fishing pole. It's a little kids one. It's character is Toystory.
We stopped by the river this morning and Sharon got to fish for the first time. She didn't catch anything or get a nibble. But she had fun and wants to go more. She really enjoyed casting and trying to do better on every cast. I'm really happy she enjoyed it so much. It's gonna be so much fun taking my girl's fishing and picnicking. Here's my bride fishing.

It really was fun watching her. She got to fish I got to wrangle Ruby. Lol I know who got the better end of that deal.
There is a fly fishing club in Casper. I think I'm gonna join. They sound like a really good group. Sharon might be interested in fly fishing. So it would be a great family outing.
Until next time take care
