Well with Christmas, New years and the BCS bowl game all mixed in a month span I have been stuck at work since late Dec... Watching the calendar days zip by with only my thought and memories of 2012 to hold me through the long days. I finally got a chance to hit the water and do what I know how to do best… disconnect and get some fishing in.
Here were i left off for 2012 my last trip...

    Nice.

    It's great to see some art brought to the usual grip-n-grin shot. My friends always complain when I take pictures, but I think the photos are priceless. Each one brings back the memory of a great day, or experience.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Great photos. Wish my first outing of 2013 was as eventful. I had 1 redfish take a swipe at my fly and miss and then never saw him again.

    Here’s to long life and a merry one.
    A quick death and an easy one.

    A cold pint and another one.
