St. Paddy's Fishing Day ~ Sunday Tippets, Damsel Style



On the road at 5:30 a.m. to head to some trout waters.  St. Patrick's Day... A day that we are all Irish!  Haha


Now, come on!!! 30% of snow means that the weather has a chance to mess with your day.  But, on the bright side, it's warmer when its snowing.  Right?  


Ok!  Let's do this!


I'm happier now...


My buddy's turn for a nice catch.


And a little chromer wannabe for the Damsel!


So glad that I stayed up late to tie some flies...


A cold, windchill of a day.  But, it was a good day catching.  Maybe it had something to do with having the luck of the Irish...  I did wear my four leaf clover hat...

A few fun facts about St. Paddy's Day.

It's my oldest daughter's birthday!  She just wanted a birthday cake each year with a leprechaun and a pot of gold on it!

The shamrock was originally a three leaf clover and according to legend, was used by St. Patrick to explain the Trinity.

In 1962, city officials of Chicago decided to dye a portion of the Chicago river green as a yearly tradition.  They did it again this year.  40 lbs of green dye in a quarter mile stretch of the river.  (We have a Green River in Utah that we don't need to dye... )


Corned beef and cabbage is an Irish American dish.
Irish Americans who immigrated from Ireland were very poor and this was a meal that was the most affordable at the time.  It has become a staple for the holiday ever since.  (If they could only see the price per lb. now!!)


So, St. Patrick's day has come and gone.  But, not without a crock pot meal of corned beef and cabbage.  Darn, it was so good that there are not any leftovers to make corned beef hash.  I guess it's the protein shake again for breakfast.  = )  That is a serving plate to feed 4 by the way. Hahahaha

Enjoy your week.

  1. Don't know if you've come across the Instant Pot yet, but Corned Beef in less than an hour and done to perfection, plus set the numbers and it does everything by itself from pressure up to pressure down. Check it out. Watched the SF/Athletics game and they had great green hats with the usual SF on it. Might have to get me one.

    1. Yes.... The sow bug is usually my top fly and I change out the end fly with something smaller like a midge or an RS2. The black wooley bugger did quite well too!
