Boating with the younger son.

Took my younger son out to DaeHoMan for some bass fishing and boating.  We cruised around in the small rental boat with the trolling motor and talked some.  We did find some bass but really small ones but that was enough for Jay to have fun.  It will soon be good bass fishing and when it is, I'll be there with my sons.


Want to go to the motherland?

A number of people I've met since coming to Asia have voiced wanting to fish in the States, but the planning of the whole thing seems really daunting. If you'r looking to go to Montana this service looks really killer. Probably doesn't translate to cheap. But on the bright side it looks like it's for those that want more of an adventure focus than the rich guy lodge experience. pretty cool.


Catskills exploration

Patty spent more time fishing in NJ than any other places.  However, she always enjoyed fishing in Catskills.  After our last trip to our favorite NJ creek, she wanted to fish in the Catskills, she also wanted to try a place she hasn't fished before.  I thought neversink gorge will be a perfect place to reintroduce her to what the Catskills has to offer to an angler. 
 Her footstep looks more like marching.

 We had the river to ourselves as we haven't seen anyone on the trail nor on the river.

 Her first catch of the day.
 She thoroughly enjoyed what the unique area had to offer.
 I've always wanted to try out this small brook that feeds into the river which is known to be the habitat for brook trouts.  I've packed 6 feet 1wt rod for the occasion and I was glad that I did as the brook contained many eager trouts.

 Since the brook is situated in the gorge, water ran fast on steep terrain.
 Patty had no problem hiking through rough terrain and rewarded with many beautiful colored brookies.

I am very proud of Patty's ability to learn the sport and also feel very lucky to have a wife who can enjoy my passion along side of me.
