I are one of those people....I can tell everything is starting to bloom...grass, flowers of course, and even a few trees down here near Atlanta are already spewing nasty-nose-cloggin'-ick. Everyone calls it that, right? LOL

I'll just be glad to be able to wet wade again! My waders have just been shrinkin' and shrinkin' lately! LOL

Fishlicker,

I am really enjoying the new pics of you, especially the one on the bench.

There is pollen in the air here in Indiana today also, lots of white stuff being driven by a blistering wind! It won't make your eyes water but it will make your cheeks red and your nose run.

You guys with the good weather keep us posted on the fishing. At least I can enjoy knowing someone is having a great time.

Wishin' I wuz fisahin', g <*))))><

Well I guess I'll just sit home today. I had hoped to squeeze in a Smokies trip, but the high water and dropping water temp will make catching a fish nearly impossible. Reckon I'll change the oil in my car and hope the HI cooperates tomorrow... Are you going Trevor? Did you want to ride with me?

thanks!

That's me sleeping (ok, not really asleep) on a bench near Coburn, PA on the ..uhmmm..I can't remember the name of the river...sorry. Anyway, I just thought it was a good photo op. I have goofier pictures I promise ya. the folks in PA are very liberal when it comes to stream access...either by law or by nature, I don't know. but anyway....you can walk along private property where there's a trout river or stream, and alot of people that own land along the rivers have benches or chairs set out - even though they are mostly vacation type homes (although usually the homes are nothing too fancy). You can see where anglers have used the benches for years and years. PA is a totally different experience, and everyone should go to State College or Carlisle at least once in their lives!

Sounds like a good day to put on the backpack,enjoy the mountains and scout out some new water! Wish I lived closer, I would do just that. It won't be long and the board will light up with daily FF posts and pics! Looking forward to it...
