Monday Morning Coffee- November 21

Aaaaauuuugghhhh!!!!!  Yawn, stretch, scratch, repeat.  Monday morning again- it must be time for coffee.  I'm going with the Sanders mug today, and some Komodo Dragon blend.  It's a cold morning out there and that warm mug feels good in my hands.  Here, let me take a sip... mmmm that's good.

Ok, well, not a lot to report.  I only fished once this last week, a very enjoyable outing on Thursday morning with Koz (our outgoing local TU chapter president) , throwing streamers for browns.  It was cold and windy but somehow it was still very pleasant.  We couldn't turn a fish to save our lives, but I guess you get days like that.  The wind was driving hard out of the north, which I think had put the fish down.  I'm going to try to get out a few times this week, being that it's a holiday week and I don't have a lot of work scheduled.

As you know, the One Bug Is Fake- 30 Days of Fishing contest is over but we haven't announced a winner yet, so look for that post tomorrow.  Long drum roll.  Did Brandon succeed, or did equipment breakage, car troubles, a hostage crisis and a dead cat prevent him from completing his quest?  Find out tomorrow.

As far as what else to expect from me here?  With several pieces of writing in the works for various outlets it has been difficult to generate much here at FR.  I do have about 30 different drafts in various stages, so maybe I can finish one and post it.  I haven't fished enough, or successfully enough, to post much.  I was too busy processing venison and finishing squaring my affairs here before the snow flies and winter gets serious.   This coming week looks fairly pleasant for November.  Hopefully I can find some fish and have something to share.

I tell you what- I'll sit down and make myself write at least a short creative piece and post it before the end of the week.  It will do me some good.

Well, I do have a little bit of work to do today, so I'm going to get to it.  Have a great week.

casting practice with Koz


  1. Processing venison isn't a bad substitute for not writing...your freezer thanks you.

    I'm looking forward to the results from Brandon's adventure, pretty cool.

    Hope you have a great Thanksgiving!

  2. Thanks Sanders. I'll try to get some writing done so you've more to read than the mundane details of my life.
