Big thank you to my little girl for reminding me so. I have a tendency to get a little serious over fishing, and carp, and all that goes with it. I think about how, tie flies, plan, and agonize over fished missed and stalks blow, but the bottom line is that it should be fun. Today was fun.
Elia and I stomped through muddy water full of spawning carp. I carried and old fiberglass rod, but the plan was to find some shallow fish, and chase them down with the net. She managed to net four fish...laughing, smiling and getting dirty and wet in the process. It was glorious.
Thanks Elia...I love that you are always up for an adventure!
