The Longest February

It's going to be a hell of a long month. And for February, that's saying something.

I'm headed to the Bahamas for my first-ever shot at chasing bonefish in early March, and I'm beyond excited. Knowing that I have sit through the cold and the gray of the shortest month of the year is daunting.

When will they invent that time machine? I'm just asking for 28 days. That's all I need. And I'll never ask again. I'll skip right past the slate-gray skies of February. I'll miss all that time at the vise. I'll let everybody else wring their hands over what some groundhog in Pennsylvania has to say.

Just 28 days.

I'm headed to Long Island in the southern Bahamas for a week. I'll be visiting the Long Island Bonefishing Lodge, and taking in all the lodge has to offer. And, of course, I'll share the tales (or should I say tails?) right here on the blog, hopefully as they happen.

Yeah... it's going to be a long month.

  1. So funny you posted this. I was pondering the other day how I have so much fun in the field, but sometimes I feel pretty boring when I put it down into words. Thanks for giving me something to think about.

  2. I'll further aggravate you with reports from Belize in a couple weeks. Also, February has 29 days this year.

  3. Wow, Chris. My bad. I am an avid Google reader user and clicked on a post from another blog and popped over to comment on it and wound up posting the comment here instead. Feel free to delete my non-relavent ramblings. Sorry man, I'm an idiot.

    On a side note, the Bahamas sound like a blast.

  4. Sounds wonderful. It could be a long month for you, unless you throw a few lines in here and there before your departure time! Can't wait to see the pastel shirts and clear, blue water shots (with that silver, fishy friend) when you get back...
