Forget Shark Week…When is Grouper Week?

This Grouper clearly does not give a damn….

Fly Fishing Film Tour – That was AWESOME, Man

Last night, my wife and I attended the Drake Magazine Fly Fishing Film Tour.

We had a blast and I will do a longer write-up when I get a little break from travel.

In the meantime…take a look at the trailer from one of the videos they showed last night.

 

The Waters of Greenstone – Bailey description:
A couple of best friends in New Zealand. Fly fishing, shearing sheep, eating pie, and talking to cows

I will probably front the 20 bucks to buy it.

I Said I Was Stopping These Late Night Friday Updates…

Not happening this week I guess.

I am sitting here with a muddled old fashioned made with Van Winkle 12 year old Bourbon.
Had a nice small plate dinner at Muss and Turners. Finally got the mussels I was craving.

Listening to The Farewell Drifters.
They are growing on me fast.

Only thing that could make this better....
Oh yeah. I am missing this porch

Today was a tough day at the office. I have some stuff I need to talk over with my boss. Nothing that would be a deal breaker, but just some stuff to address.
We had a nice annual meeting this week. It was a couple of days of hard work, but very rewarding.
This was my first chance to meet many of these farmers that work every day to produce the best milk they can send to your homes.  It was nice to get to put a face with all the folks that I have talked to on the phone for so long.

Just as a side thought…Friday nights are crappy TV nights. I think right now I love the ’80s is on VH1. I do like the show about Alaska bush pilots that comes on later.
Other than that…nothing.

My uncle sent me a facebook message today telling me that he used to fish in Michigan with Steven Rinella‘s father. He is going to the event that Steven is holding back in Michigan soon. I think that is really cool. This is my second family tie to a sportsman that I have discovered recently. My cousin Tammy is married to the brother of Flip Pallot, a legendary fly fisherman, and host of the Walker’s Cay Chronicles. Scott (Tammy’s husband) is a grammy-nominated artist who also did the music for the Walker’s Cay show. Check out Flip’s casting form…totally effortless.

Linds and I had a rare night out last weekend when our friend Susan got married. It was nice to hang out with everyone. Linds got to have more than one cold adult beverage (I drove). Sarah Kate stayed with her Nan. Everyone was happy. Congrats to Susan and Craig Behan. We have another adult night coming up in May. An Old Rip Van Winkle Dinner and bourbon pairng at H. Harper Station. I also want to get a Pimm’s cup.

I thought this would be worse since I was under the influence of Bourbon.  Alas no.  It is pretty calm.
