    To catch a wild skagit river steelhead on a Tenkara rod in december 2014 & to have Kerry S. take the pictures of w.w. tailing the fish.

    Or in april 2015 be fishing white creek drift on the sauk behind Kerry S. & W.W. and hook a 20 pounder

    Well, first of all there's the Spring Fling an annual ritual.
    Next is to fish the St. Joe with Ivan.
    Then maybe some rod time in the fall along with upland birds in Montana.
    Lastly to pull some browns out of Pass Lake.

    And if things go right, retire.

    Realistic?
    To further my beginner fly casting so I only pile up the line 1/4 times instead of 1/2 the time.
    Try for the IGFA trout royal slam. We're one of the few states it's possible to do it all in. I plan on doing it all in high mountain lakes as well, been doing a lot of research.
    Catch a Tiger Musky on a fly.

    Rivers on my agenda for 2014: Flathead, Swan, Blackfoot, Rock Creek, Madison, Yellowstone, Beaverhead, a couple of local secrets and a week with the horses in the Bob somewhere for some remote angling......
    Much more time on the water than I managed in 2013.

    Killing as many hatchery fish as I possibly can on whatever gear it takes to kill them.

    Refine my spey casting abilities and technique. Catch and release on my own (without hubby's help). Fly fish as often as possible!
