almost perfect

Over Easter weekend, I had a chance to fish the Catskills, New York area with my friend Fishfinder. There's been heavy rain the past few days and we knew there was a good chance that the rivers would be blown out. The weather was still chilly and we could see the last bits of ice on the shaded areas of the banks. The water was running angry in many of the rivers we wanted to fish, so Fishfinder took us to a few of his favorite spots in the upper reaches where the water would be more tame. Upstate New York is scenic in every way possible, and the rivers have the characteristics that make it an instant favorite for me. We did not catch much fish, but the joy of being out in this beautiful place made up for most of that. We wandered from river to river, checking out spots where we would return in better conditions. We had enough beers at night to get stupid, but sometimes that's exactly what we need to get mind off the work and other things in life that can weigh one's spirit down. Being in the right company when fishing is good is nice, but being in the right company when you're not catching fish is downright critical. Thanks for the trip Fishfinder, see you again real soon.

Since we wern't busy catching fish, we have a bunch of photos.

낚시가서 고기가 않잡힐때, 그 상황을 괜찮게 해주는것은 좋은 친구다. 정말 재미 있었다 현철아, 곧 또 만나자. 그리고 그때는 다 잡아 버리자.


  1. Thought of the trip still brings a smile to my face. Yes, we shall do it again.

  2. looks real good. like the look of the cabin. some of those pictures look like you might run into Saint Joan Wulff around the next bend.

  3. so you like my new fancy Scottish fisherman look? I think Fishfinder was embarrassed to be seen with me, so he took us to some really remote spots where he knew no other angler would be.

  4. Both of you guys look good out there. On that Scottish hat, I have to see myself to approve: Maybe because it is too drastic change of appearance. Too bad that water wasn't so helping. I am certain that both of you still had a great time being out there.

  5. wow 그곳이 너무 멋지게 보이는데
    trout은 그리 많지 않은가봅니다.
