Default what a boring day!

I woke up early with a backache, neckache and headache, it looked like rain so i just stuck to home.

So i worked on some tying, trying to get the hang of things.

Now the aroma of my wifes delicious meatloaf is filling the air, and beginning to drool on my shirt! A nice relaxing day all-n-all, just befor the crazy weeks/s ahead at work. Sorry for all the pics.....but i was bored

Yeah caught a couple the other day. had to swap out the line though, it was a little too light for my rod, especially if it is a 4wt floater.

I know the feeling. It's warm (102°) here and I was not in the mood to go outside. I read a couple dozen fly forums and tied a few flies. I wanted to take a nap, but it did not happen.
You where much more productive than me.

Also, if you get the chance to read that book in the pic, do it. Its a great read, has some great pics in it, and really sort of nails the concept of why we all Fly Fish.

Default Re: what a boring day!

As usual, up before 0400 (Sandy my Yellow Lab can read a clock, I kid you not!) to give him/Husky their 'Breakfast.' Played on the laptop for a couple of hours and BOARD-BOARD-BOARD to pieces!

Rogue's running to high to use a 2-hander, save for bike chain for a sink tip, so why waste the Petrol $$.

Mowed the back lawn and went back to bed and slept for another three plus hours. Since then? Flaked out and watched a couple of movies on the 'big screen.'

BOOOOOAAARRRRIIIIINNNNNGGGGGGG.

It's good to see I'm not alone spending a couple of hours on The Computer,or even Flaking out in The Chair,as the last few days have been Boooring!!!!
I don't have any animals to feed,occassionally a visitor turns up.
Can't do anything in The Workshop as there's junk everywhere which needs cleaning out,however I haven't felt like it,perhaps tomorrow ???
Brian.
