I've tried to keep a log a few times in the past. Lasts about 3 trips and I forget about it.

i didnt read this whole thing, just skimmed through it so sorry if this has been asked. but...

is there something similar to a log for an iphone/droid app? i cant ever find any good fly fishing apps and it would be sweet to be able to take a pic of my fish, log everything and then continue.

I went the digital route. I just use a word document and record a few things about the outing. Weather, time of day, stream conditions and what worked. When visiting a new spot I put directions, access and where to park. When I find a new spot I want to try I put a note to self and highlight it. I can insert a map, photos etc. When researching a new purchase I paste links or spec sheets from the company website. Scanned copies of warranty cards go in there. Everything fishing goes in there. I like the ability to use a search function so I don't have to skim the whole document when looking for something. In the winter when it is too cold to fish I read over the last season's notes and it gets me stoked for spring.

ard,
i have recently purchased, or i should say my wife purchased, a small portable sized log book for myself.
one of my new years resolutions is going to be a daily log into my journal regardless of what else may be going on.
i used to write in logs/journals pretty much all my jr. high/high school days and well into my college years as well. (just takes a few minutes).
so i say fire up the quill again and get to it!

some of my old scribbles

Casey,

Any and all are of value, I would expect that with your interest and work with & in art that the drawings are quite special. All of my notes are made either during or immediately following an adventure whether it was a day trip or an extended outing. You'll be glad to have the memories as the years roll on............

Ard

Actually I enjoy archiving threads, I even found JP's introduction thread and bumped it onto the current board This is a reasonable topic and I hope a few of our new members will consider taking time to keep a few notes.

I have tens of thousands of words stored in document files, Word - Adobe PDF's - on flash drives and backup drives and the pictures, God do I have a bunch of pictures. However, those old journals, the misspelled words, the scribbled lines, dog eared pages and water stains; yeah, now that's a record. The field journal speaks of history, the old school way of making a record. Think of it this way, can you imagine your children after you are gone, handing your grandchildren a 'flash drive' saying this was your Grandfathers
