Cutting down the holiday tree.

After quasi celebrating Hanukkah we decided to cut down a tree, put lights on it, and call it a holiday tree. I am not religious. Kinda of like Thanksgiving, the actual day of Christmas doesn’t have a lot of significant meaning for me. I do enjoy the day off and if we don’t have any food in the house, you will find us at a Chinese restaurant with our chosen friends.

It was fun in the beginning.

So whatever you celebrate, enjoy the holidays.

Fishing week!

Fishing 5 days a week is fantastic. Especially when it is 5 different environments. This is Kopachuck at low tide fishing for sea run cutthroat trout. That little speck in the water is my buddy James. He took my canoe over to that island in the distance and allegedly caught a big one on his first cast.Screen shot 2013-06-07 at 10.17.13 AM I also got to float the Snoqualmie with Derek and Skip. It was a great day of discussing what is important in life.Screen shot 2013-06-07 at 10.17.21 AM Derek let loose a little secret about the “Upper Deck”. Not the kind where you poop in the reservoir of a toilet. But this place was a beautiful place to fish with nobody around.Screen shot 2013-06-07 at 10.17.48 AM I even got a little bit of steelheading in with a couple of guys from the shop.Screen shot 2013-06-07 at 10.17.31 AM Screen shot 2013-06-07 at 10.17.00 AM5 of 5 will be after work today. It is light until past 9pm these days so us fishing junkies can still scratch the itch after work. We are also putting together an online magazine that will be released soon!
