Monday is for Smoking
We have written nearly 5000 blog entries in the last 11 years. We are 13 short of that number. After this post, we are 1 closer. That is a quite a few.
The reason I mention this is because some yahoo may yell at me for not writing about fishing today. Well, go climb a tree sir.
I was speaking with a new guide on the Mo this fall at Stickney Creek boat ramp. He introduced himself and we began the normal guide to guide small talk. He thanked us for writing daily blog about the Mo along with other topics. He mentioned that we were the only Missouri River players that published daily while the rest may only get one, or fewer posts, out per month. I mentioned that it may be the most updated fly shop blog in the world.
He laughed and stand “Well it can’t be that hard to sit down for a few minutes every morning and scratch something out. Right?” I remarked “Well, it must be pretty f***ing hard, if Headhunters is the only ones doing it.”
True. It is difficult to publish daily. We do miss occasionally. I feel like we will miss once a week this winter. If you need more reading, just look back at the previous couple thousand blogs. There must be a few morsels of interest in there, somewhere.
So here we are post peak season on a Monday morning with air temps cooler than we like, snow on the ground, and yet the Missouri River is still flowing. So, when we aren’t sleeping, drinking, eating more than we should, we are fishing. Swinging is the mode in the late fall early winter. And it isn’t too bad. I’m headed out in a couple hours myself.
With the smoker going…
