A few years back, I used to get bummed, and maybe even a little resentful if I couldn't get outside and enjoy the first truly beautful day of the year.
And there I was, on the first day of Spring, with bluebird skies and temps well into the 70's, sitting indoors all day at a fishing Expo.
I couldn't have been happier.
First of all, I now realize that the "first" nice day of the year is indeed not the "last" one. And furthermore, if I get all of my stuff taken care of regardless of how nice it is outside, then I can truly enjoy the rest of the Spring with a clear head.
Which brings me to now.
After two of the craziest months of my life (good crazy), with not an hour to spare between a full-time job, part time writing, working Saturdays, three fishing Expos and all the other blessings in my life...it is all over.
Don't get me wrong, I still have a job, I still have writing, but the Expos are finished, I won't be working any more Saturdays and it's time to do some serious fishing.
Next stop: Lake Hopatcong, Sunday March 28th.
