    Where are the smallstreamers???

    O.K! Guys Time to come out to play some more.

    The site is new hands. SO WHAT!!

    You are still who you were. So come on into the warmth of the camp fire.

    Settle down to a cup of coffee.

    Relax and tell us where you have been.

    What you have been doing.

    Tell us the truth laced with a few lies.

    Knock the dottle from your pipe and muse on.

    Tomorrow may be a day too far. Jack

    Jack,

    A good start to a thread. I've been lurking here for a long time, and like you, recall when there was a lot of activity from active posters. Members have wandered away over time, and I don't know what we have to do to bring in new members. The best advertising is word of mouth.

    We're all busy. I'm still on a deadly long commute to a full time day job, but I hope to do something about that in the next couple of years. I have springtime farm work on the evenings and weekends. One of my horses died in February, and now when I have time I'm training a new horse. I will finally take a part of a day next week to start my stream season on a little creek a half hour north of the house.

    I'm posting a scrap of flash fiction once a month, and reading all new posts. Other than that I have not been too active here.

    Yes, it would be nice to have a group conversation again.

    Ernest, You have made my day! Knew you were out there from your posts and glad you feel as I do and My main hope is some of the other Old Guys who are lurking will join in.

    As with all fishermen. "Hope Springs Eternal"

    Perhaps this small ripple will spread.

    Ofuros. Glad to see you are still active. How are things in your neck of the woods in Aussie?

    I check in mostly every day. Haven't got to fish much since last August--once in Sept. and just a couple of weeks ago. I could whine more about how extra busy I am even though I'm close to retiring. I hope to get some time on the water in a week or so.

    Hi Jax,
    I'm still around..drop by from time to time in the hope the activity has picked up again. I love my smallstreams....

    I work away, so family time & chasing after my 2 & a half year old boy come 1st when i do come home,
    then there's the ageing house that needs some serious loving...seems the more things I touch the bigger the projects get.

    Bushwalking has taken over from chasing trout over the last couple of years...mainly because the mountains are so close, only a short 45mins drive away. I get to spend a night the wilderness and that's enough to recharge my tired soul.
    There's a few pics here in my signature below.....

    Ready & waiting in my car are some printed maps of trout streams & creeks that I plan to hike into & fish...just need a 3 day window
    to make it worthwhile. So the flame hasn't completely died....it's just flickering.
    Should get a session in before the season closes in June...fingers crossed.

    Ooroo,
    ofuros

    Aloha Jax, I chcek in here about once a day or more. Not much action. I post on saltwater, since that is most of the fishing I do now. The ono are starting to show up offshore and I have been guiding a lot lately inshore. I catch bonefish and trevally almost evrery day. My daughter is pregnant and lives in spokane, so I will be over there in september to see the baby and chase some big browns in montana. Other than that I don't have any big trips planned for this summer, but you never know what will pop up. I wish dudes would post more pictures and stories. I went surfing with my son this morning it was 4-6 feet and stayed glassy until noon. I hope every one had a nice Easter, Mems.

    Good on ya! Mems; I see your posts on saltwater and am often green with envy. Like you I could do with a lot of nice photos of the rivers and streams the guts fish. Hope some of them come out to play. Have Fun.

    My wife and I have been doing a bit of traveling of late. One of the best trips was going to Venice, LA and fishing for Yellowfin Tuna. Definitely not small stream fishing, but definitely fun!
