Such a grand view

Standing at the edge of amazingnes 

 I have spent most of my life in Arizona and had never made it to the Grand Canyon. In the past 30 days or so I was lucky enough to have gone there twice and I plan to make more trips in the future. My family lives up in Flagstaff now so we have been making the trip up when we can to visit and escape the heat. One of the trips was in my fishing post with a couple photos but I saved the Grand Canyon photos from that trip to write this entry.

I'd rather be fishing...

Common Carp close up. 

 Since I was a kid I can remember a lot of good times staring into the water with a rod in my hand waiting for the next state record to bite my bait. Now that still hasn't happened but I haven't given up. through out my life I have usually walked away with some sort of catch wether it was a small blue gill, catfish or a carp. Recently I watched my friend KC Badger's love for fishing grow dramatically as he got more into fly fishing and has become pretty successful with it. Seeing all his adventures over social media motivated me to get a fly rod and give it a shot and I have been hooked ever since.
