Just one little trout would be nice

I can’t remember the last time I had gone fishing. I must’ve been eight or nine. I’ve been dying to go out but didn’t want to embarrass myself by going it along. So yesterday afternoon, a couple of my fishing expert friends and I went out to a nearby State Park and sat by the lake for a few hours with our Ugly Stiks. I was being patient for a trout to take my nice little bait so I could have it for dinner. Well, they definitely enjoyed the tasty goo I stuck at the end of my line but they seem to be a little too smart to stay hooked long enough for me to reel them in. It got a bit frustrating I had to put my pole down at some point and shoot some pictures instead. Overall, it was a nice, quiet and peaceful evening even though we came back home with a box of pizza in tow.

Anyhow, here are some photos I took of the trip…

We arrived at the lake around 5pm. Sweet!

Wait, look what I found…

By crikey! I found me a beauty, mate! Actually, I was kinda freaked out since I came a little too close to get a close-up shot. I’m used to viewing snakes only through very thick windows.

Ok, time to get serious… says George and Mark, my fishing gurus.

It’s getting late and everybody’s leaving so we got this place all to ourselves.

Excuse me, I got distracted by the breathtaking views.

Before you know it, it’s getting dark and it’s time to head on out.

Wait, one last shot before the sun disappears.

Well, no seafood dinner for me… but it was fun, nonetheless.

Until next time…

  1. Those views are spectacular. Completely inspiring. And that snake – yikes!

    I hate snakes too. I could hardly look at the pictures myself without getting goosebumps.
