What has reflections been up to...

As you can see I have been off line for a few days... I was taking a little down time and trying some new things...
First off I went salmon fishing for the first time ever... I have gone with DH before today but, I always sat on the bank and read a book... This was the chance of a life time for me... We got a call around seven Wed. night with the offer to take a guided fishing trip for four, for free... It was all paid for and my sis and her DH could not make the trip and they handed it to DH and myself... We called DH's brother and wife and they could not go with us (bummer)... The trip has for Thursday morning at 6 a.m. over on the coast... DH got home around 10p.m. that night and we packed lunch and extra clothes as that was all we needed to take along... We went to bed around 11:45p.m. and the alarm went off at 2:30a.m. so, we could make the drive to be on time... It was a short nights sleep...

We happen to have been the first ones at the dock at 5:22 a.m....:0) We both like to be on time for everything and that means 15 minutes early around here....:0) So, we got out stretched and used the potty and thought we may have to check the other end of town just in case there where more boat docks, we where told to met the guide at the docks but, we wanted to make sure these are the only docks...:0) LOL

Okay, so, I caught my very first salmon and it was the only one caught on our boat all day...:0)

We had bites but, nothing that we could set the hook on.... Our boat was the first out there and the first fish caught...:0)

The day started off over cast then cleared off and other than a bit of wind it was sunny and a ton of fun...

I am eating it...:0) Salmon are really not that good for skin mounting... The head has to become a cast they have to much oil in them... The skins can be cleaned and mounted but, you still run the risk of it not being clean enough... But, we did get good photos and the lenght and girth of it, for a reproduction fish... r:0)
