Hmm. I go to work at about 5 a.m. and I am back home at about 4:00 p.m.
I live within walking distance of a large lake and about 6 minutes down the road to another lake by car. I try to handle my fly rod every single day at one of these locations.
If the fishing is good, I stay till I don't catch anymore fish.
If the fishing is slow, I stay till I figure it out and catch fish
I usually fish from say 4 p.m. till about 7 p.m. now cause it's quite dark
and cold and windy, plus there's a highway well within my backcast ...
...no matter how hard I've tried, I've never been able to
turn a car...maybe if I had a bigger rod ...
On my days off, I'm up at 5 a.m. and on the water by say 5:30 a.m.
I don't come home until about 7 p.m.
I guess I'm somewhat obsessive. There's so much to enjoy with a fly rod.
Everyday either I figure something out or my muscles do. Or, I learn a new
'read' on the water that reveals the 'behemouth' I've seen...
