It’s been quiet here on the the Tasty Takes front. Part of that was due to a long winter, part due to recent high water, and part to a new development on the life front: Mike and I welcomed George Emmons Eaton on May 10. Despite all this, we’re still fishing, Aimee is still writing, and Mike and Chris are still drinking beer.
Adding George into the mix has changed our fishing habits a bit, though we did take him out on his one week birthday and have continued to do so at least once a week every week since. He does great in the pack and just a few days ago he spent six hours on the water with us. That being said it can be tricky to really get after it, and make sure George has everything he needs/isn’t exposed to the sun/getting eaten by mosquitoes/hungry/wet/etc.
When our friend Mandy offered to watch George for a few hours so we could have a date night, we threw the rods and waders in the car and hightailed it for nearby waters.
Turns out date night in our household equals Sessions Lager, chubby chernobyls, size 12 hares ears and a handful of trout a piece.
