2016 In Reflection

2016 In Reflection



Each year, time on the water, friends and events paint a fresco on my mind. 2016 like every year before it followed suite as well. As I look up in my mind it's filled with my family, great fish and friends.  A one-of-a-kind masterpiece that is not only painted forever in my memory, but also carries me through into 2017. 


A great fish landed with the help of good friends. A perfect start. 


Another opening day on Fishing Creek with my youngest. A great time for both, but so much more for Dad.


This year we broke out the tubes


My oldest daughter began fly fishing as well and I was able to be there for her first fly rod fish.


I became an official member of the Windknots and Tangled Lines Prostaff member.  

Thank you Howard!


I not only made a good friend in Chris but I was fortunate enough to witness this smile in person.  



Once again had a chance to share water with old friends.


Another Bow festival with my Son



And hunting partner



Grand Daughters 1st Birthday!



And for the first time in many years all were present and accounted for. 

I was truly blessed.

Add a few fish into the mix and I couldn't ask for more.








And after 20 years since the last, I was able to make what will most likely be my last freefall jump (#128) 



For those who have visited the blog through it all...THANK YOU!

Looking forward to 2017!
