You are looking very relaxed and WARM sitting on your balcony in the Philippines. For most of our friends living in N. America and Northern Europe it is still Winter time with a lot of snow on the ground. The warm sunshine should thaw out the old bones and provide some positive energy for you body and mind. A very nice holiday indeed!
As usual the Forum does go a little quiet after two weeks of intense competition. Your Tharthart Lake outing was a thing of beauty and everyone enjoyed fishing it, myself included.
Keep those great outings coming.
