Three days off, hotdogs and hamburgers on the grill, lakes, rivers, friends, family and a cold beverage or two. Not sure what your plans are for Memorial Day but, my guess is, those thoughts might have crossed your mind? If you live in Central Virginia it seems Mother Nature has other ideas for us.
If you’ve been reading my blogs you might have picked up that I have no problem being honest. So, the honest truth is, the first thought that went through my head with all this rain and weather forecast for the weekend was, oh crap. This sucks, I really wanted to float and fish this weekend, my plans are all messed up. Well, not those exact words, trying to keep it pg13. The second thought that came to mind was, I am a self-centered ass. It’s Memorial Day. Yes. It bothers me that my first thought was about not being able to fish versus the men, women and their families that sacrificed everything to give me the freedom to go fishing. My deepest and most sincere THANK YOU.
With that being said, does that mean I’m not fishing this weekend? Not at all. It means that while I’m fishing this weekend I’ll be thinking of our fallen heroes that have made it possible. If you are thinking the same thing here’s some info that will hopefully help you enjoy your time on the water this weekend and be safe. The James and Shenandoah are very big and my guess is, will only get bigger this weekend. Please, check the links before heading out. If you’re thinking trout, most of the larger trout streams/rivers are going to be big as well. I would recommend spring creeks or brookie streams. If you’d like to give us a call before heading out please, don’t hesitate. (434) 977-6882.
Thank you to all our service men and women.
We hope everyone has a happy and safe Memorial Day.
