I'm referring to my mini fishing outing on Sunday afternoon. Before even stepping foot in the water I could tell it just wasn't going to be a great day...it just had that vibe.
I tried to compensate for this ominous feeling by heading over to my "Not So Secret Water." While it doesn't have the biggest fish in it (or even the mediumest fish), the inhabitants are typically eager to please.
Unfortunately, on this day they weren't. Much like the dreary weather, I pretty much came up zeroes on this trip. Heck, I didn't even see a single fish scatter from beneath my wading boots as I stumbled through their creek in my typical unstealthy Tenkara ninja fashion.

Oh well. Some days you can't have your cake and eat it too. Yesterday, I didn't even get cake. But I'm not complaining, even if the stream was lifeless. The 3 hours on the water was just enough to recharge the batteries for the work week ahead.
Okay...maybe more like enough to get me through Tuesday...
