Let's get one thing clear. I'm not complaining about the weather. Despite the fact that it was mostly nice out, it did cloud up and rain this weekend. The fact is, we need the rain. I just couldn't get motivated. I've got some things on my mind besides fishing or writing. My self-imposed boundaries as unlimited as they are, forbid me to say any more. Nothing for anyone but me to lose sleep over.
An article I read in the paper this morning said the run-off this year will probably come early and fast. I don't know if that's good or bad environment-wise, but I'm all for it. Whatever gets me out on the water most often before July is welcome.
I posted the cartoon above as kind of jab at someone I know. This person doesn't believe dogs belong on a fishing stream. I agree that if the dog is noisy, nosy and untrained, it probably doesn't. But I've seen too many fishermen with their dogs along who were well trained to get too excited about it. As long as the dog doesn't point or bite, I'm good.
I did get something accomplished today. I finally decided to go ahead and put the Net Clip on my new net. I was really more afraid of bungling up the job than anything else. I don't know anyone else that has even the slightest skill with a drill and a screwdriver could mess things up. Did I ever mention that I have three thumbs? Anyway, I took my time drilling the two holes and it turned out well. I can now clip the net to my Sling Pack or the back of my shorts or can leave it in the car like I usually do.
I'm now going to pop open my once a year beer and try to think of something useful to do.
