(Possibly) The Start of Something Beautiful

This is my first free weekend since I left for China and, with work dragging through the week, I set out today to make the most of it. In my world, an easy way to make the most of anything is to visit the Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World in Vaughn. I've been planning for some time to learn fly fishing and I took the first step by acquiring a 9-foot 6-weight rod and reel combo. To the satisfaction of the family comptroller, this package was less than half the price of my last acquisition - a $400 catfishing outfit. I'll try and keep track of my progress in this hobby over the summer. It should be hilarious.
