Bird watchers report the northern migration and so, the Hummingbird feeder has been installed. The magic of the hummers and their territorial dance is just a short time away, for it is the beginning of Spring.
Fishing for trout usually involves beautiful places. Quiet. Peacefulness. Serenity. And just like opportunities in life, sometimes, a second chance is needed. That is what “catch and release” is all about. You catch the fish, and return them to their home for a second chance at growing old.

There is something about a motorcycle ride in Spring when the trees are turning from empty to green with early leaves and buds. The roads with no center line or any paint markings are a joy to ride. To explore. Occassionally, a beautiful red bud tree shows its shade of red among the green giving a wonderful contrast of those country roads.
