"One Bug" Fly Fishing Torunament

It's that time of year again when the Fly Fishing Club has their High School Scholarship fund raiser. This is "The Man" getting ready to take his pontoon boat down to the water at White Pines Lake.


And, here we have some of the other anglers and their boats. Women, too!


The concept of the tournament is that the fishermen may use only one fly, chosen before they hit the water, and fish it for the duration of the tournament which is usually about a half day. Once the fly is lost or damaged beyond repair, the fisherman is done fishing for the day. The fishermen fish in two person teams with each measured fish over 12 inches adding points to their team total.

This is "My Guy" on his way out to the other side of the lake. These pontoon boats seem like a lot of fun. Along with the use of the oars, the feet with flippers are used to pedal the boat which works well especially when moving only small distances. A day on the lake can give the legs a "super workout". No fitness center needed for leg strength is you are a "pontooner".


Following the tournament, a nice lunch is served and the awards are presented.  The weather and the lake were beautifully perfect.  It was a nice day for all.

Get out and Play!

Playing Hooky

What a beautiful day to skip church/choir and get out on the lake. That is exactly what my gentleman friend is doing today. Bass fishing on M-24 Ranch Lake is on the agenda. It is a private lake and the Fly Fishing Club is having a "play day". At least, that is what I call it. Pontoon boats, rods and reels along with all sorts of stuff will be coming out from winter storage. The event was originally scheduled a couple Saturdays ago but was rained out. So, today is the day! I certainly can not fault him for playing hooky because he has been one of the most consistent, regular members of the church choir for many years!


And, I am here at home, just where I want to be. After yesterdays activities with lots of walking, I need to be right here with no scheduled activities. My favorite kind of day. Tomorrow will be one week since I received treatment for my spinal issues. It is still too early to tell what the results will demonstrate. There has not been any consistent pattern to the discomfort. Sometimes there is pain and sometimes there is no pain. I am still optimistic!


A good time was had by "The Fisherman".  I don't know where he gets all of his energy! Yes, the pontoon boats are relatively lightweight, but he continues to impress me with his abilities to get everything loaded on the vehicle by himself!

We went out and enjoyed a nice Chinese Dinner this evening. It was a very warm day and the sunset was lovely. 

I hope Your Weekend was Enjoyable.
