As a self-employed fishing guide, a day at the office when not on the water is just that, a day at the office. It means a day spent returning phone calls/emails, updating your website, editing photos/video, restocking fly boxes and any other mundane tasks that have been neglected because of time spent on the water working. Today was one of those days.
I came across a memorable photo from last month that I never got around to posting. This red was terrorizing mullet with its back out of the water. It looked like a dolphin crashing the shoreline. Robert made a great cast and put his fly exactly where it needed to be. The rest is history.
Robert caught that fish on a perfect (i.e., warm, calm and sunny) winter day in Southern Louisiana in early January. It was also my birthday. I can’t think of anywhere I would have rather been than at the office working. I had a great time fishing with Adam and Robert. I’m glad the Fish Gods smiled down on us that day because much of early January was cold, cloudy and windy.
