Out With The Old And In With The New

Here we are again... New Years Day.  Resolutions? Oh, those things.  Well, this year, I am just going a day at a time and will be grateful for everything I have.  My biggest resolution if I had one, would be to remain positive and cheerful.  We have enough negativity in the world.  And forget about those senseless grudges.  There isn't time for that!  It just drains the person who has the grudge.  Let it roll off your back and move forward.  Be the one who takes the high road.  Make every day count.  And treat those around you like you would want to be treated. These are the things that I want to do better this year.  Yes, I will work hard at my job and help bring food to the table.  Hey, it's part of the American dream, isn't it?  Honestly, if I see that my children are happy, my grandchildren are giving me hugs, the household bills are being paid, and I'm getting in a fishing day every now and then, nothing else matters.  These are the things that make me happy.  I hope that you have a great  2016.  May you and yours experience peace and happiness and pass these on to those around you.



I put together a little wrap up of the fishing adventures that I had in 2015.  There were so many good times on the water last year.  New friendships were made.  And old friends were revisited.  It was a very good year.  Enjoy this two minute vid.  And thanks for stopping by!

  2. I think I hit sign out instead of publish. Oh well. The ways of an old man. Looks like you had a stellar year judging by the very nice video you made without my help! It was nice to see you hook up with Patti, Aileen and Rachel again. Where is that darned Rebecca? What happened to our little girl that now now makes her own videos and ties her own flies? Happy New year my friend, maybe this year.

    1. Howard ~ Welcome, back! Haha. Thanks, I don't think that I actually went on as many trips, but it looks like I did! Lol. I love those Idaho fly girls. They always are so much fun to fish with. I was glad to finally hear from Rebecca before Christmas. Now, I know she is good, just not doing much social media anymore. Have a healthy New Year!!!

    1. Drew ~ Thanks! It has gotten off to a slow start, as my annual New Years Day fishing was just too cold, as it didn't get above 10 degrees at the river. Haha. But, I will be out there soon enough. Happy 2016!

  4. Happy New Year Emily,
    Health, kids, grand kids and a time or two on the water. That pretty much sums it up.

  7. Happy New Year to you, RD! Great video! Lots of fishy times and trips with friends and family. Good times are what life's all about, and you're so right about just staying positive. There's definitely too much negativity in the world.

    1. Thanks, Justin, for stopping by! Thank heavens for fly fishing. Yes, negativity won't get you anywhere. I had a friend who told me that they would get up everyday out of bed and say "Today's going to be a great day!" It made sense. If you get up thinking the opposite, you are already battling yourself.
