Sunday-January 1-2017-It's coming! Bigsur's New Year's Day Karma Tradition
However.... the big news today is this is the first official announcement for 2017:
Bigsur's New Year's Day Karma Tradition!
Yes, the new year is just around the corner and the passing of another year! Once again I have maintained my youthful appearance and physique while the rest of my friends and cohorts have deteriorated and aged terribly.
Hard to believe, it's that time again! The last few years my New Year's Day tradition for the next year's fishing karma is to go fish on the first day of the year. The amount of time fishing or number of casts does not matter, it's simply getting a line wet at least once on New Year's Day, Sunday January 1st, 2017 and setting the tone for the coming year!
This is the fifth year officially for Big Sur's New Year's Day Tradition and I invite everyone to stop by Metcalf Bottoms picnic area off Little River Rd between 12:00 and 4:00 pm New Year's Day, throw a line and get your fishing karma on for 2017. This is the very description of unorganized and unsponsored by any group, just fishin fanatics gathering for a minute of casting, telling tall tales, outright lies and recounting the last year's escapades.
Just like last year in addition to hot dog's on the grill with fixin's, and hot coffee, Santa may even bring a 10 x 10 pop up canopy for those of a weaker nature to huddle under again! Why even the Mr. Buddy heater may make an appearance again like last year.
Bring your drinks, cigars, family or dog and stop by for a minute, throw a line (bring a fishing license, we may even have an extra Martin rod or reel with orange line to make your New Year's cast if you forget your gear). If you wear waders you will be automatically entered in the "That Fool Gonna Drown Pool", where wagering is allowed on who goes under first! Rain or shine it's on like donkey kong, only snow and closed park gates will change the location.
As usual no event would be complete without a competition, as tradition demands, we will be competing for whoever catches the largest fish, uhh...make that any fish! Once again the winner will receive the coveted Herb's Welding Shop hat and braggin rights for a year, where he or she will than have their picture taken in the hat, which we immediately take back cause it's the only hat we have!
This past year was the 100th year old birthday of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park; join us as we welcome the next 100 years and celebrate the coming year on New Year’s Day, Sunday January 1st, 2017 at Metcalf Bottoms off Little River Rd.
This hat has never been officially worn by Lefty Kreh, Robert Clouser, or any respectable angler! "You could be next!"
