High Park Fire

I was able to get out and do a little fishing.

Our dog Pixie has started to heal and is keeping food down for the first time in almost 2 weeks.  It took having her to go back the vets office for another Barium swallow and some IV meds.  She is currently taking small bits of slurry gruel like food and continues to receive IV meds and fluids.  Being a nurse is really paying off there as she would have to stay in the hospital to receive these meds. I am able to administer her meds and IV fluids.

I was able to get a few hours on the lake.  I loaded up the Fish Cat 4, the waders and my 4 weight.  Overall it was a great few hours on the boat.  What joy.
I managed to land several small Largemouth Bass on a small yellow popper.

This blue gill must have run into some trouble down there.

Ok this has nothing to do with fishing.  I saw this on youtube one night.  
Point the camera at a nice color background, aka flowers.  Push your ISO to 100 and the F-Stop to 20 while in Aperture Priority mode.  Let the camera choose your speed and then shoot and move your camera in a small circle.  Cool effect!


  1. Glad to hear Pixie is improving...and glad you got out on the water!

  2. Thank you e.m.b.. They key seems to be holding like a little newborn to keep her head elevated so the GERD wont bother her. Lets hope this keeps up a winning streak for her. Thank you for the kind words.
