I was reminded by Troutrageous that it was time for me to look back at 2012.
What a year, eh? I had highlights in my personal and fishing lives. It will be a hard year to surpass, really. So many wonderful things happened. I can’t help but feel like a very lucky guy.
Here is what 2012 held for me.
I welcomed 2012 in at the Yaak Tavern in MT where I had the very strong suspicion I had met my future wife.
I got a chance to go to Cuba with Jim Klug and a bunch of writers. Amazing experience that included my magazine worthy Tarpon shot.
My divorce got finalized.
I got engaged.
I discovered the joys of pier fishing with my girl who loves sharks and loves being my fishing buddy.
I got married.
The honeymoon brought me back to El Pescador in Belize.
I got two saltwater trips in, which for me, being fully employed and having split custody of a 5 year old, is a pretty good trick. Cuba and Belize are kind of choice locations and I feel very fortunate to have been able to visit both in 2012.
It has been a very, very good year. I’m looking forward to what 2013 will bring.
I have one trip lined up already. This is to Grand Bahama for Spring Break. It will be my intro to the Bahamas for my little girl and my new wife. I’m thinking this could be a good thing.
All the best to you in 2013 and thanks for reading and taking part in the blog.
