The other day I hit the stream to test out the Umpqua Toketee Vest and Surveyor Pack. I was excited to get into some fish. Well, as luck would have it, I got skunked. This is becoming a very familiar theme in my life. I have yet to hook into a fish for 2014. Sucks! It looks like I am going to have to go after some bluegills to get the monkey off my back.
I must say though that the Umpqua stuff worked great together. Very positive review coming soon. I also must admit that I am in love with this Redington Butterstick. Soooo fun to cast. I can't wait to get a healthy smallmouth on the end of it and watch it bend! Good stuff.
Here are some instagram photos for your enjoyment. You will probably see a few of these again in the Umpqua post. I am not going to lie. Fishing has not been a priority though for me. I started working out and trying not to be fat anymore. That has taken up a bulk of my time. I have just been way long overdue on a post for this site. Seriously....this has been the only time I have been out fishing since my last post. The weather is warm so I suspect that the bass are going to be getting very active very soon in the local streams around me. This is going to make fishing so much easier for me since I won't have to drive an hour or more to get into some trout...and I mean TROUT. Not the hatchery raised idiot fish they put in the local streams to die.
