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.
