Man… my trip is sneaking up on me and I have to say, I’ve hardly had a chance to think about it. Normally at this time I would have tied up about 3 dozen flies and this time I’ve only tied about 6. Now, there is almost no room in my boxes for new flies since I tied so many for Andros, so maybe that is playing in.
I’m getting gear together (including a demo rod from Redington, a pack from Fishpond and a fly line from Rio). Might have some gear coming from Orvis.
I have a new tent (one that can withstand the rain, which seems like a 100% chance of falling) and a pad that will pack down tight.
Childcare is sorted (thank you to my ex for picking up a couple of days) and the trip is totally clear on the home front (thanks to my ex for being my ex and making me not have to beg for this opportunity to go).
Soon… soon I’ll be on the plane and on my way and I’m very much looking forward to a little time in the salt.
