That's a little more ambitious than my goal; I want to catch my first brown trout on the Meduxnekeag river near my hometown. (On a fly of course)

Just to enjoy another year's fishing.

I'm getting to the age where every day above the ground is appreciated.

Mike: I'm there also and couldn't agree more! Just enjoy the time on the water that we have left in the tank!

My goal for 2012 would have to be spend some more time on the water. Luckily I believe that work has slowed down enough that I will be able to Get down to the Coast a few times, possibly take a trip to Colorado, and sometime between September and October, I will be moving back to Michigan for good, at least for a while!
