Well, it’s Memorial Day 2011. Not only a day to remember the men and women who have served and sacrificed for this nation’s freedom, this weekend marks the unofficial beginning of summer for most of the nation, but for Nevada and the Sierra’s summer isn’t quite here yet. It may be a few more weeks, yet.
Ah, springtime in Nevada.
It snowed around these parts just the other night, the mountains covered with a fresh dusting of the white stuff. Where I live it has yet to hit 80 degrees this year. We had nicer weather in February (more…)

As I sit here over the Memorial Day weekend, not fishing but suffering from shingles, I have found a few new sites of interest to Nevada and Eastern Sierra fly fishermen. They are High Noon Trout, Wanders with Trout and The High Sierra Fly Fisherman. I also added The Trout Underground last week. Not all of these are professional quality, but who cares. Lots of fishing stories and pictures, what more could you want?
Oh, what are shingles you ask? Well, Shingles (herpes zoster) is a painful, blistering skin rash due to the varicella-zoster virus, the virus that causes chickenpox. What fun! I went to the doctor early on and they gave me Valtrex, an anti-viral drug that helps keep it in check. I have a few areas of the rash on my head, tongue and lips. It is quite painful, especially my teeth. It is getting better. Hope you are enjoying your Memorial Day weekend, cause I’m not.
