I was puttering around on the blog wondering what's missing. Then it struck me: what's missing is trout.
It's still cold, my wood pile is dangerously low, but the snow that was forecast has been light or nonexistent. Spring is still in the air. In less than a month one of the local lakes will open up for trout fishing, and in less than two months my lake will open, and another season will have begun.
That's why I do this blog, and photos like these are its heart and soul. They've been missing for too long. But a whole new batch will soon be on the way.
