I've had some pretty good luck catching trout like this: one salmon egg (pink) and one corn kernal (right out of the veggie can) (yellow) on the hook as bait. Cast it into the water and let it sit. In a short time a trout will bump it but do not try to catch it the first time. In a few seconds the trout will come back again and actually take the hook. Set the hook and bring it in.

What beautiful scenery to fish and read next to! Tough life but someone has to live it!

Hope you get back to feeling 100% soon. Can't wait to see pictures of the Sea Eagle. We think this is what we need for next winter while in FL. Put in a few pictures of blowing it up of you would.

Great blog today. Isn't this lifestyle great. In 1978 I rafted the Grand Canyon with a put in at Lee's Ferry. Now I want to do it again! We are definitely going to camp there. Had thought about Page and doing the Rainbow Arch boat trip bit it is pricey and we saw lots of arches in Arches National Park.have you done Rainbow? If so are we missing a lot? I hate to miss anything.

We used your Howard sent me link to buy a sea eagle 465 this past winter after seeing your pictures. Blew it up when it arrived to make sure there were no leaks. Haven't used it yet but we are looking forward to our first opportunity next weekend on Cape Cod.

We'll have to head that way and stay there. With the water that color, it's a good painting subject.

Sounds like a perfect day for you and for Linda too. Glad you are feeling better. Tomorrow sounds like a winner. We need to get better at arranging drop offs so we don't have to paddle up and back. I think if John & Pam search your site for sea eagle they will find multiple explanations of how to do it in detail. Your blog is great for how tos. I know cause I've used em'. thanks

I wonder why "no campfires"? There doesn't appear to much in the way of combustible ground cover. Fire danger seems negligible.

Love your blog and your photos. One minor picky-picky though, colorado actually translates as "colored". Red is "rojo". We have never considered a full-time lifestyle, but I love to read about yours. We have kids and grandchildren nearby and want to be in their lives so it makes a more settled life the choice for us.
