It’s been a tough year for me. Along with a divorce, an illness and a job layoff, I needed something much more uplifting to end the year on. My son was going to be with my ex this year (which was tough too, first year without him) for Christmas so my girlfriend and I decided to go to New Orleans for the holiday. I haven’t been post K and she’s a photographer (awesome btw – deeallinson.com) and was interested in photographing the city and cemeteries using an infrared ip camera. When I asked if she minded going on a fly fishing outing with me, she said “sure!”. I think I’ll keep her.
We stayed at the Woodland Plantation for a couple of nights as our base for the fly fishing trip. We had the whole building to ourselves as we were there at a pretty off time. Foster, the owner, was awesome and welcomed us with some wine and conversation about the history of the plantation and about the fishing.
Instead of yapping about the trip as I’m not yet back into the blogging mode, I’m just going to drop some pictures in here and let them talk for themselves. I’m hoping to start the new year with maybe a recap of last year’s fishing (which I completely kept to myself), a new site/design, a giveaway and some regular posts. Hope your fishing is taking you to some astonishing places. Happy New Year!
