Well, here's hoping everyone had pleasant memories of 2011. I'm looking forward to 2012.
...Christmas ice-skating, some played hockey, on an unnamed lake with family in northern California, to be specific Weed CA. This actually is a video wishing everyone Merry Christmas & Happy New Year..but I'm so techno-challenged I can't get it to download & play via the blog.
Fall of 2012 awarded us with great fly fishing...thanks to the previous year's tremendous snowfall. There were other non-ffing events I didn't report. Here are some...
Truckee River Day*, Ocober 16...the Little Truckee's Meadow section; one of the day's varied volunteer water-related projects throughout the Truckee area that day....
Planting willows for bank stabilization at the tail-out of Papa's Pool
The 3rd annual Gilligan's Rib BBQ competition; October 15. This year's winner was from Texas! In 2012 it will probably go international...good-time had by all.
The first annual "give us back our rivers" Tahoe-Truckee Fly Fishers' FISH-IN...mid-November
Early November....pursuing Steelhead on the Trinity.
....and visiting friends in Redding
Splitting Firewood for the winter...which hasn't arrived yet!!
*A personal gauge to see who helps out with "hands-on" projects on the local waters One of the three (3) prerequistes for being a fully commited GIVER...as opposed to being a total TAKER
