What a year 2021 was. I started with thumb surgery and ended with "frozen shoulders". But, in between, it was pretty darn good year with my fishies. I was able to go all over the West and catch some amazing fish. Great memories with special friends that make the adventure even more fun. My bonus this year was getting out on the water with my two sons. Seeing them with a fly rod, even though it might not be a regular thing, was super gratifying and special to me. Thanks for following along and sharing my passion of fly fishing. =)

As Holly and Jared bounced around from spot to spot, I finally settled into a comfortable run that delivered for several hours. I don't usually stay put that long, but it was hard to say goodbye to fish that were sipping emergers in front of me!

My last adventure with my friend, Clairey, was before the pandemic of 2020 that started in 2019. Good grief. Well, I ended up driving to Wyoming to spend a post birthday trip weekend with her and her family in August. They really showed this girl a good time. Great friends, fish and food always make a good trip. I do not like hot summer weather. So, I headed out to find some cooler fishing days that the Jackson Hole area has. The frost on my car the next day told me that I was in the right place!
I love Wyoming. I think that most of my best friends know that. Well, here's another reason.

So often times, we find ourselves sifting through a mess to find one little thing. It could be that size AAA battery that you thought was in the junk drawer or that one size 18 pheasant tail that you know is in the bottom of your pack somewhere. Why do we lose these little things? Because we didn't put them in the right spot in the first place. They should have gone into a container or box. Not loose with everything else. I have found myself in this situation way too often. So, it is time to declutter and simplify again. When it is too hot to go outside and fish, I often opt for cleaning out my fly fishing pack and organizing things. That way, I am ready to go out next time. I just hate it when I cannot find something and waste time looking for it. Same goes with my closet. I just have too much of everything! Here is what I propose. And you can join me if you wish...
(Or 10 bags in 30 days...
A couple bags a week)
When you declutter and simplify your belongings, you have more space. You also have more peace of mind and less anxiety about where things are. You can now organize the more important things that remain.
Take a breath and look around. It will feel great. I promise.
Have a great week!
