Well, our first trip to Broken Bow after the flood produced mixed feelings. Always seeking fish and fishing excitement, we went north to catch the first fish of the year. Accompanied by our dear friends Dawn and Jason, it was FishOn the fly time. Cody likes Broken Bow fishing; I, however, do not fish the area well, and I am not sure why. I stocked up with flies from TailWaters Fly Fishing to add to my trout box and adopted a "can catch fish" attitude.
Not to let the lack of fish deter us, Cody previously made dinner reservations for Abendigo's. We dressed up, enjoyed one another's company, reveled in the delicious six course meal--filet and snow crab legs. Cody Mood even ate the third course's Peach Rum Sorbet; yes, you read that correctly, Cody Mood Bell III ate a fruit! It was back to the cabin for some hot tub, champagne, wine, and ginger ale, and the fishing video EASTERN RISES. Oh, yes, Kamchatka is still on my want list, right behind #1 Mongolia. I would love to spin some deer hair and create some mouse patterns for eastern Russia! With Auld Lang Synes exchanged, it was off to bed for the "first fish of the new year." For us, catching that first fish of the year means good fishing luck for the rest of the year. The pressure was on.
