Another May

Looking back I realized that I started this blog eleven years ago this month.

.

During that time, many of my favorite blogs have disappeared. Their authors have gotten busy or moved on to more current social media platforms, but about once a month I still sit down and post something. I don’t use “hashtags” (formerly known as pound signs) and I typically write more than 140 characters. I rarely include links anymore because I have found that most of them end up with a 404 error after a couple of years.

I started keeping a blog because it was the only form of journal I seemed to be able to stick with. Mostly, it continues to fill this purpose for me, a record of my fishing experiences, but I am pleased to see that other people occasionally stop by and read a post, and hopefully they find something useful to take with them.

The past few months have felt very busy, with hardly any time to get out and fish. I did spend one day fishing Lake Wilson with Kirk. Lake Wilson is a unique and peculiar place and I plan to write a bit more about that trip soon.

I also caught a ride on Makani’s boat one morning. I hooked one bonefish but it got away. Makani managed to pick a stray fish from a huge school of oio circling the flat. We also spotted some giant trevally and a pretty big blacktip shark cruising around.

In other news, we are taking a short trip to Oregon, where I am hoping to hook a couple of hungry Springtime carp on the Columbia. Later in the month we are heading to French Polynesia to sail for a couple of weeks. Hopefully that will be a productive fishing trip too!

  1. I’m on the north shore. If you are in the area and want to fly fish, give me a call (808 four nine two two 6 five 9). Have a SUP and will travel.
