I had a pleasant surprise this year when I ran into Marty and Mia Sheppard in the line for the Pirates of the Carribean ride. Knowing of the Sheppards through their reputations as talented steelhead guides, Mia's championship casting, thier articles in Swing the Fly, and through mutual friends, I decided to introduce myself. Of course we got to chatting about fishing and I enjoyed visiting with them very much.
Since returning home, I've been coming down from the trauma of being in the midst of the mind numbing crowds:
|I don't belong here|
|Not my Happy Place|
|Get me outta here!!|
|Harmony (21 months)|
Gotta admit, I've been glad to come back to this:
|Home sweet home|
|Gotta be a steelhead out there somewhere|
May His Grace and Peace be with you and wishing you all a Happy New Year!
