I got to go camping with my girl again last weekend. We met up with an old college friend of mine up at Pinecrest. It was a lot of fun and the girl enjoyed herself. I wanted to get camping twice this summer and I did. When you have split custody, your summer is only half as long and it can be hard to fit everything in. You blink and it is gone. Glad I got this on the books and glad my wife was OK with me taking off and leaving her alone with the 7 month old.
There was, of course, a little fishing, this time on the South Fork of the Stanislaus River. As with most kinds of fishing, we just had to get away from all the people and then got into the fish. They weren’t big, but they were pretty. Most were 5″ to 9″, but I lost one at the very end that was maybe 15″. They were pretty fish with vivid coloration. It was a great little river and perfect for the 4 wt.
Toward the end of the trip I started having some tooth pain (not my favorite kind of pain) and by the time I got home, I was pretty miserable. Things went from bad to worse and now I pretty much look like I lost a boxing match. I’m about to turn the corner on this little abscess, which is good… because I’m not a fan.
So, the blog as has been a little light lately due to the camping and the tooth, but I’ll get things back going. Not to worry.

Bjorn – get better – enjoy your daughter – mine fished at that age, she is now 16 and I get to trailer her horse off to shows – fishing is on hold for now
