We hopped in our trailer beginning of Feb. Me and the Missus both survived a nasty bout with Covid and figured we might as well take advantage of a little immunity.

We started down in Texas and got caught up in that miserable deep freeze they had. Before it hit, though, I put my paddle board to good use in the marshes surrounding our campsite.

From Texas, we found our way to Florida. Fishing was slow, but what an amazing place to paddle around.

Headed up to Mississippi to visit my aunt and uncle. We love them, but they know I’m really there to play on their lake. Throwing a 1wt at greedy bluegill is a blast. And, my uncle knows how to grow them right. The little bass were a fun as well.

From there, we visited the Smokies. Nice Brookies all day long, though the waterfalls were really the stars. It was great to fish in so much green.

And, finally, back to the Land of Enchantment and my local waters. They’re in run off right now, but the fish are still hungry.

And, we got our Covid shots on the road, so I’ll be in the Eastern Sierra in a couple of weeks to see what’s lurking in the creeks and rivers. Can’t wait.
