Default Best Day Fishing!!

Well as some of you already know and rest will know now, I've been out of work for the last 5 months. Time spent desperately searching for employment here in Jackson Hole. Having lived here for the last 18yrs the last thing I wanted was to have to leave. Leave I was going to have to do at the end of this month.

So faced with the prospect of leaving this wonderful fishing Paradise I've have been getting all the spring float trips in that I could. Today being one of them. Though the weather did not start out great it was not bad by any means. The fishing was good. We were getting action right from the start on streamers and in several riffles we stopped in on dries.

Just as we pulled into the 3rd run where we spotted fish rising the went from good to great. Anchored up on the bank and Greg hooked a fish, then my iphone beeped. I pulled it out and there in my email was a job offer!! One I've accepted!! The weight lifted from my shoulders was enormous and a huge relief!! I'm staying in the Paradise I call home.

Kind of funny that I did not even get my part time guiding job on the river. But I did get the most needed job of my life in the middle of a the river while experiencing great spring fishing.

I'd like to say to anyone else out there experiencing unemployment troubles, Hang in there!!

Dave, that is awesome to hear, and it sounds like it couldn't have come at a better day. I love those times when the fishing gods smile upon you and the success carries over into other aspects of your life, and this sounds like the perfect example! Congratulations again, buddy, hopefully we can fish together in your paradise in the future.
