Haunted By Waters

Just returned from my father-in-law’s service in Oregon.  Whew, glad that’s over.  Maybe it’s just a mental thing, but it seems like we are free to move on.  I won’t lie, the whole experience over the last few months has taken a toll.  I’m worn out, a little depressed and don’t really feel like doing much.

However, I know from experience that when you feel that way getting out and doing something is exactly what you need.  For me water, especially moving water, has a soothing, cleansing effect.  The line, “I am haunted by waters,” from “A River Runs Through It” really resonates with me.  I am haunted by waters.

I honestly can’t walk by the irrigation canal down the road (officially Desert Creek, but several miles downstream of the fishable section) without peering in and feeling the urge.  So, I am going fishing.  I’m not sure where, but I need to feel a living thing tugging at my line.  I need to feel the cool waters on my legs and hear the gurgling riffles or the sound of a trout rising.  It’s time to move on.

New Additions, More Coming

Wow, I’m amazed at the number of hits I have gotten already.  Mostly people redirected from the flyfishnevada.com URL looking for general information on the web about fishing the area and my site comes up, or rather the old site.  Sorry, I haven’t got all the stuff transferred, but most of the popular stuff is here now (the Journal, Waters and the East Walker River).  I will get more transferred soon.

For those of you looking for my pages about building the Otter (D4 Dingy), I will get something up soon.  Not sure how it will work in the blog format, but something will be up.  Unfortunately, the otter is no more.  The wood I used was not up to snuff and she cracked badly.  She now provides a home for my cats. :(

Thanks for visiting!
