Writing things down all the time, going on for years, can be tough. A lot of guys have disappeared that I thought were good writers. I much prefer the observations over the technical details. I know how to fish and what to use, but there might be something I didn't notice and you did and it might help. Don't make it a chore, write it down like you talk and it just becomes part of the conversation. For me, I have to edit out all the swearing
I cringe when I read my stuff from 1998-99. I'll probably cringe when I read the current stuff 10 years from now. I still keep hacking away.
When my daughters were young, I'd be out before sunrise and home by the time they were stirring out of bed, usually late. Then I'd spend the day with them.
Now, who needs dad around.
Besides, I'm much more alert at the end of the day.
Next full moon, get out there before daylight and fish by the light of the moon. Used to do that up from the mouths of creeks using topwaters. About as good as it gets.
