Default soon won't be around much

Even though the trout fishing should be getting nothing but better for a while now I need to change gears. I am starting my competitive bass fishing season with my first event March 20th. It is now time for me to get out on the water and start patterning my fish. Shame to have this conflict as I love my flyfishing. I just cannot seem to moderate myself enough to enjoy both at the same time.

I will pop in from time to time to check on yall. PM me anytime if any of you want to chat.

Here is my boat

Good luck with the coming bass season--- as long as you share the season with us through your amazing photography-- I think most here won't shun you for too long.

Hey Dave,
Have fun on the circuit!

Edit: If you want to combine your bass and fly fishing passions, why don't you compete in the Bass-n-Fly competion in the California Delta on May 21?

thanks guys. I will keep you posted as the season goes on.
Luked- I certainly am familiar with the burn out syndrome. Last time I sold my bass boat I gave the guy every rod/reel/lure, etc. Took ten years off.

And here I thought you were just a young fella Dave

I wish you well and have to say that your boat would get me to Hewitt Creek in about one hour flat!
