The Promised Land

The Promised Land

First off I’d like to apologize to the dozen people that probably read my blog for being such a slacker as of late. Or maybe as of the last couple months is more suitable? I find it hard to spend time indoors during the summer let alone at a computer and away from the water. If I am indoors it’s probably to tie flies or do something responsible. This summer has been down right amazing to say the least and I plan on getting caught up with my blog posts. So, let me tell you about a little trip to Wisco… It was the first of June and I got a call from B-Rad… “How was the opener” I asked. “We’ve got a lot of attention trying avoiding them before the opener” he replied. “Well… And since it’s opened?”. “It’s gonna be good! You got some time in a couple weeks”. “I’m not sure? Fuck it, I’ll make it happen!” I replied. A couple days later I had a ticket and thing were a go… I was heading to the mecca, the promised land, the indigenous water that esox prowl, I was Wisconsota bound! Always travel as light as possible… Not too bad for 2 reels, 1 extra spool, 2 rods, 2 meat lockers, waders, boots, wading jacket, 2 cameras and some other essentials. Ok maybe anglers don’t really travel that light but it all fits nicely.

Unfortunately ┬áthe day of my arrival was also the same day as a series of drought breaking thunder storms… It rained the majority of the time I was there and we watched the rivers swell. Fishing was rough but I got my shots and my eats. There weren’t many, a few I blew and a few were tough luck. I landed a smaller male and a few small mouth. I’d do it again in a heart beat, the place gets in your blood, it makes you earn it. Brad was a killer host and so were the rest of the Musky Country crew. I can’t wait to get back to the mystery water.
