Every year we head out as a family on Earth Day and do some streamside garbage cleanup. This year we headed to a local stream that I frequent and decided to hit it hard. I told the kid's for every peice of trash they find, that they would get 5 cents. They each ended up with $5.oo a peice. I guess one man's trash really is someone elses treasure :) They had a great time out there and my wife Bird and baby Finnigan were also able to make the trip. The day was as beautiful as it gets and we all had a fantastic time improving the condition of the stream. The number one item discarded this year were empty bottles of sports drinks. Powerade, Gatorade etc... Appearantly lazy people like their electrolites :)
After cleaning up the roadside and stream, I decided to head upstream to chase a few trout before the day ended. At first nothing was biting then it slowly picked up. Again I tossed the C.R.K. Zonker Minnow at them and after a while they were chasing it all over the holes. Here are a few pics. Hope you enjoy them. :)
Until Next Time ...... Tight Lines to All !!!!!!
