Wow today is the 22nd I think I have been a very busy guy. I been putting 16 hr days in for quite some time. When the wind blows here even with such little snow it just adds tons of work with moving snow away from house's . At this time the snow is just clipping us. Now for the ugly news. After california did so well last week I moved arizona and minnesota just to the east for the weekend. Florida and montana were set up on a nice edge of broken ice and I also had high hopes for that spot. The fishing for my houses just plain stunk. Yesterday I moved california to 11 feet to the north. A couple of the guys rode it the house and said it was a hoot. All the house have marked fish all weekend but getting them to bite is a whole new ball game . Maybe when I go out this morning things will have changed a guy can hope. The whole fleet will be on the move again this week with florida being the first to move with peggy coming tuesaday morning. Dave and Sarha rolled in last night for there third year and first in old minnesota. Sarha was not in the house more then a minute when she said we will be requesting this house from now on. Two years ago they arrived in a brutal snow storm and the greek and I shuttled them out to montana on the sled as there was no way you could drive in the white out and drifting conditions. That was when all my house's flooded from the weight of the snow drifts. Time we were able to get to the houses the temps and plummetted adn all seven house's were flooded and frozen into the lake bed. It took the greek and I 5 days to chip and break them loose. If that ever happens again I'm not sure what I will do. I will have to hire some one to help me thats for sure. I may also move minnesota tomorrow if dave and sarha do poorly. The red Baron is in the process of replacing a axel and bearring . Phil has been up since last week repairing everything I have broken over the course of a year. I hope to have the vplow on by tomorrow. i guess its time to hit the lake and say are goodbyes lets hope everyone started catching some fish last night.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
