Afternoon Out

I love to FISH!
We were all sitting around the house yesterday, early afternoon, when I decided I wanted to do something, so I suggested we head up to Willow Pond (actually a reservoir) to fish, and eat toasted marshmallows. It was a great idea! Jari stayed home because she was tired, so we took a friend of Kevin's. For some reason DH hasn't got his fishing license yet, so he brought a cigar and sat and listened to his American Right radio while I had the best run of luck fishing that I have ever had! I didn't catch the biggest rainbow trout I've ever landed, but I did catch 17, 4 of them good keepers, and this little guy, that I just had to have a picture of because he was so tiny. It demonstrates my prowess LOL I was having so much fun, I forgot to take other pictures, so this is all you get, the rest is up to your imagination.
I always fish trout with rooster tail trebles, and trim the barbs so they don't do as much damage coming out. The fish apparently really liked yellow yesterday. Every time I cast, I had two or three hits and/or caught something.
There are perch (you never throw those back as the NF&W wants them out; someone planted them and they are so aggressive they are killing the native fish), and bass in Willow, as well as rainbow and German brown trout.
When I woke up this morning, I felt like I had been hit by a train, everything hurt; my hands, elbows, shoulders, knees and feet. But it was a good hurt :)
I don't mind getting older, as long as I don't feel like I am. That really sucks! So it looks like I have chondroitin in my future.

What a nice way to spend the day! Love your chicken post too. I have 3 "Easter Eggers" poults with blue and green legs. Will their eggs match the color of their legs do you think?
