Default Summer 2010 Best Photos!

The snow is flying and time on the water is getting limited by ole 'Mother Nature'! The computer gives my back and my sanity a break from the monotony of tying flies for my accounts and my clients for the next year. I need some encouragement from the rest of the board to keep my spirits up and there is nothing like photo's for uplifting my spirit and getting me motivated to head back into the tying room.

Here are a few highlight photos from my summer on the water, let's see what everyone else has to share!

All great photos but I gotta love your fishing wagon! I have felt funny about what I drive ever since I sold my 1987 full size Bronco almost two years ago. I have always used old trucks that were not worth as much as the rods & reels I carried (not implying low value to your ride) and now I have a new truck and feel outta place.

Love the fishing wagon!

Those are impressive pics Biggie. What a camera too. You're in a beautiful spot.
Got no pictures to motivate you back to the tying desk (cause I'm not very good at it yet). Maybe next year.

May I ask what kind of rod cases you have on top of your Wagoneer? I've been looking for something like that and would appreciate any info you could pass along. Thanks!

Hi kstump,

Here is a good one but not cheap. Feather-Craft sells them.

There was a lot more, but I think you get the flavor of what our year has been like.

Thanks for letting us participate. Fun thread.
