June 12th

I turned nineteen today. I also graduated from high school. The Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup. And I even managed to sneak a couple hours of night fishing in. I caught a dozen nice rainbows on the Waller Waker, and even caught a big brown, which you see me holding in this photo:

OK fine, that last part is BS, but I did have a pretty good night outing, probably one of my best. And it was a pretty crazy birthday. I had an idea at graduation though. Tomorrow I am going to bike 40 miles and fish every body of water I come across, carrying only my nymph box. I'm only going to spend the time it takes to catch one fish, than I'm moving on. I figure that ought to make a good post!

  1. Happy Birthday, congrats on graduating high school.
    Put a sail on your bike and you won't have to pedal.

    1. Ha! It'd be a pain any time I have to go up wind. I don't think tacking works as well with bikes as it does with boats.
