Getting the itch.

Between things popping up in my personal life almost non-stop for longer than I care to think about, I haven't been hitting the water much. Since October, to be technical. In fact all things fly fishing (including this blog) have unfortunately been put on the back burner if not placed back in the fridge.

Well, that bug has hit. The past few days have been exceptionally nice here in PA (today we topped at 62) and my skin is a starting to itch. It's been way to long. Past time to clip on that license, blow the dust off of those rod tubes and fill the crisp, Spring-like mornings with curses as I work the rust out.

So hopefully, I will have plenty to write about in the coming weeks.

Honestly, I haven't been writing a lot lately because I don't want to be one of those blogs that rehashes the same topics as every other blog. There's enough of those out there and if I find myself doing that and becoming a hack, I'm going to stop. If I have nothing more to add to the conversation, it's time to stop talking.

But I think that I can scrounge up enough unique content to keep going for some time.

Some of that will hopefully come from both the Easter Sports Show and the Fly Fishing Show in Lancaster. ESS starts tomorrow until the 12th and the FFS is the 18-19th. It's up in the air if I can make it to ESS this year, but I'm not missing the FFS. It's only about 30 minutes from my house, so if I do shame on me!

So until then, tight lines (or hope for a quick thaw for those that actually had a winter this year.)


  1. I know something to use to get rid of that itch, but I'll save it in case fishing or tying doesn't cure it for you.

  2. Thanks Howard. It's nice to know someone has my back. Ha!

  3. I know the feeling....I might be heading out tomorrow down the Cape and a local pond before the Super Bowl.

  4. Fishing and football...not a bad way to spend a day. Tight lines!
