Fulfilling a Request

I enjoy looking at outdoor pictures, especially those posted by fellow bloggers. Howard at Windknots and Tangled Lines has shared some great blog images from his recent post. In his response to my comment about the post, he suggested that everyone should do a post like his image post. So I’m going to be the first blogger to fulfill his suggestion. I hope the rest of you guys will submit an “image post” in the coming days as well.

Beautiful rainbow taken from the crystal clear waters of the Sipsey, I will miss fishing this outstanding tailrace.

Overcast Days

For the past couple of weeks we have had overcast skies with periods of rain, which pretty much covers the forecast for the region here. These kind of days usually have me at the computer reading blogs, watching fly fishing videos, working on my ancestry tree or watching some of my favorite western movies.


Reading fly fishing blogs has become one of my go to activities just about every morning after breakfast. I am one of those guys who gravitates towards people who have things in common with me. That is why I like blogging so much because it gives me chance to converse with other fly fishermen who love the sport as much as me.  

I really enjoy watching fly fishing videos, especially the ones that pass along bits of information that will help me land more fish. I think one of the best fly fishing videos series for the beginner and the seasoned angler is The New Fly Fisher with Bill Spicer.

How could I go through the winter without working on my Ancestry tree? I sign up for the three month stay the first of November and leave the site the end of January. During those months I catch up on all the information that has been submitted concerning my ancestries. Ancestry recently added DNA testing and that is something I may consider while on the site this time.

As most of you know I am an avid western movie fan. If I could have lived another life it would have been during the 1800’s. I know times were tuff back then but my love of the outdoors and the adventure that period offered would have made it perfect for me.
I am more of a fan of the 70’s through present day westerns as opposed to the earlier westerns. The earlier westerns were not as realistic as the Eastwood era and Duvall era movies. Any western with Robert Duvall in it is considered a classic in my book. Three of his best were Lonesome Dove, Open Range and Broken Trail. 

So I will end this rambling episode by saying if you guys haven’t tried some of these overcast day activities, then I highly recommend you give one a try.
