Ugh...awful right? Just when you didn't think there was anything more awkward than Charlie Sheen on the Today Show...but more on that in a bit...
The Fly Fishing Show's in town this weekend...holla!...at the Valley Forge Convention Center like 15 minutes from my house. Will I be there? Probably not. Lilly's 5th birthday party is on Saturday, so I will be knee deep in pink & princesses. Actually, that's not a bad place to be. I swing a mean Wiffle ball bat and we've got a piñata on tap. Sunday? Nope, have to hit the airport in the afternoon for a business trip.
Oh well, I don't need to look at all that shiny new gear anyway (or at least that's what I'm trying to convince myself)...but my lack of attendance shouldn't dissuade you if you live in the Philadelphia metro area. I know...it will be tough to go on without me. But if you're brave enough, check out the website HERE for more information.

Have you seen that the new wave of camping upon us? Bubble tents. Yup. I'm ditching that Wal-Mart special I bought last year and getting one of these bad boys for the summer. I guess sleeping in the nude isn't an option in these things...but then again, perhaps that's the whole point. Either way, kinda reminds me of an awful Travolta movie I saw once....or the equally awfully awesome Gyllenhaal remake.
This probably will get lost in all this randomness, but the 2011 Perkiomen Watershed Clean Up will be held on Saturday, April 16th from 9 AM to 12 PM. This is a nice event for those that are local, and is also being supported by Perkiomen Valley Trout Unlimited (my chapter, that I'm also pretty much an absentee member of).
Registration is open now by following THIS LINK. Or you can visit the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy's website HERE for more information.
As I mentioned above, Charlie Sheen is everywhere these days. I don't get it. Can't a guy drink a bathtub full of Jack Daniels' for breakfast, snort coke off multiple prostitutes' body parts for lunch, and then show up on every "serious" TV news show rambling nonsense these days without losing his #1 sitcom?
I'm telling you, we live in a world information overload. I'm sure Mr. Stratton of Silver Spoons fame had his demons...they just didn't have the internet and shows like Access Hollywood back in the early '80s to blow them up to extreme proportions.
|Nice "Pennsylvania Tuxedo" Mr. Stratton|
In any event, Charlie set up a Twitter account yesterday and started making indecipherable posts (with pictures) about "Winning!" Going viral is not the word to describe how apesh*t this has become. Go Charlie! P.S., your porn star girlfriend(?) has a nice rack.
|Winning! is so awesome.|
Finally, blog love this week will be short and sweet, especially since I gave out more than my share of hugs & kisses yesterday. This week's suggestion to go visit all that good stuff is Fontinalis Rising. Good writing, great pictures, a solid all around fly fishing blog. At the time of writing this FR had 25 Google Followers, I know we can do better than that for him. Plus you can find Jason over on OBN & Facebook, so those are two more things in his favor. We like those places here.
