Fall in Huntingdon

Now that Wendell is now living it up in Montana, I’ve been dreaming about the west more and more. This jealousy has encouraged me to get out and enjoy central Pennsylvania so Wendell doesn’t think he’s the only one having fun. I haven’t gotten out as much as I’d like with Ultimate Frisbee, friends and schoolwork to blame. The mountains are really glowing orange now and it has been a wonderful first couple of months here this year. Enjoy this compilation of photos from my adventures.

After our road trip this past summer where my fly rod was swallowed by the river, I decided to invest in a Tenkara fly rod. This is true simplicity, because it leaves the reel at home and the line is tied onto the end of the 12 foot rod. At first I worried that it would be restrictive on bigger water, but after getting out on the Little Juniata River and Spring Creek, I’m a true believer. I hooked 7 trout on each trip, and each one was super exciting. On my most recent evening trip to the Little Juniata I landed a fat 15 inch Brown Trout.

Where’s the reel?

Tonight is our first night in the 30’s, so the cold is coming. Stay tuned for late fall and early winter adventures of Pennsylvania and Montana!


The Mighty Mississippi

After two days of driving we arrived on the shores of the Mississippi River in Little Falls, Minnesota to do some good ‘ole fashioned river fishing. The fish were abundant and Kenton fulfilled his dreams. After a kind local man took us out fishing on his boat the next day, we are back on the road bound for Missoula Montana.

Passing through Chicago. A man offered to buy our van while waiting in traffic.
