Some of my Favorite Post From 2016

As I sit here today and scan through some of my blog posts from this past year, they make realize why I love to fish so much. I still remember every detail from the trips, the other fly fishermen I encountered and fishing with individuals who love fly fishing as much as I do. I thought I would share with you guys what I think was my top five outings for 2016; some you may have viewed and some posts you may have missed. I have to admit some of my 2016 outings may be hard to top for 2017 starting with a memorable trip with the grandchildren and my daughter in June 2016:
Grandkids + Mom Fishing with Pops
What made this trip special was lots of fish landed that day both from the boat and from the bank. My daughter grew fishing with me at the same age her children are fishing with me now. I'm glad the tradition will continue.
Putting a Dent in my Bluegill Quest
I’m sure I will find lakes here that will match the bluegills that Walker County Lake had swimming in it. I still remember the spots where I landed these bulls and of course, talking with the gentleman fishing for catfish.
This is one fishing trip I will never forget, mainly because I was able to do something I’d never accomplish on the Sipsey, land numbers of quality rainbow. The video footage link above sums up the trip!!
This post carried me back to my childhood and the fond memories I had of my younger brother, Mom , and Dad. The only brother left out of five is my older brother Bobby.
A memorable trip for sure landing this huge Spotted Bass with my 8 ½ ft. 3weight; I think I may better this fish when I visit Laura Hill Lake come spring.

The Pond and anything relating to your bluegill quest is always enjoyed Bill. It was nice to go back a revisit your trip with your family. Thanks for the suggestion on favorite posts!

Always nice, Bill, to look back at our experiences from previous fishing trips. That is why our blogs are such great tools for doing just that. I know I have read these all previously, but again, nice to look back through them with you. Hope you have a magnificent 2017 on the water.

I've found that looking back on old blog post is an aid in determining when some of the bluegill spawns takes place each year. Thanks for the comment

All fishing memories are beautiful, but the one's that are of family are the best.

Thanks Bill. Lots of good memories here. Especially like that first one which seems to hold the essence of what it's all about! All the best for a new collection this year!
