2012 By The Numbers

If you’ve noticed the long delay between posts, you’re not the only one.  We haven’t forgotten about the blog, but Carrie and I have been very busy settling back into our winter jobs.  Contrary to popular belief, we don’t spend our winters relaxing on the beach enjoying drinks.  We will soon begin looking forward to the 2013 season, but before we do we thought it would be fun to reflect a bit on the 2012 season.  In case you didn’t make the trip this past summer here’s what you missed:

side note:  
That picture was taken this past spring on our way up to Canada at Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis, MN.  We didn’t want you guys to think there was an incredible waterfall out at the lodge that we hadn’t told you about!


  1. Thanks for the numbers update. I enjoyed reading the list! Can’t wait for 2013 to get here!

  2. I liked this style very much. More fish than any other year? Bigger fish? Let me guess – more later. Also, this update showed up on my facebook home page. Sweet!
