    Yellow flags out for mixing business with fishing... and goofy little coporisim's like this one. It's bad enough we have to deal with these at work... is nothing sacred? :D

    My goals:
    • Complete the 6th annual MT trip w/big brother (started when he retired)
    • Ruby (our Yellow Lab) achieves Jr. Hunter and goes on her first hunt
    • Fish more than I talk about it
    • See 2015

    Some goals, in no specific order:
    1. Fish east of the divide.
    2. Don't buy a fly rod or reel.
    3. Get my girlfriend into camping (told her there are no grizzlies in the Bitterroots and probably none in the Sapphires).
    4. Catch a big bull trout (don't tell FWP I said that).
    5. Fish the backcountry more/less time on the big rivers.

    I don’t know if you would really call it a goal, but one thing that I had been hoping to do for the past couple of years was to go river snorkeling in the presence of adult steelhead. With a little help from the Wild Steelhead Coalition, I was finally able to make this happen this past September. To say the least, swimming with wild steelhead and observing them in their natural environment was probably one of the coolest river experiences that I have ever had.

    Fixed it for you, unless you planned on living an awfully long time. Since your #4 is also one of mine, this is a no excuse year for us to fish. I think I hear Teal calling my name.

    Bring some old school friends together again and get them "back into fly fishing" in central Oregon. Already planning a trip.
    Fish Rufus and Omack , already have two different trips planned with two different people.

    I've never been much of a goal setter (hence the "underachiever" moniker), but I guess these are the things I hope to accomplish in the coming year.

    1. Learn to tie some of the basic patterns I like to fish for summer/low water steelhead. To name a few...
    - green butt skunk
    - blue charm
    - cosseboom

    2. Catch a steelhead on a fly I tied.
    3. Fish the north umpqua more.
