Fishin' & Wishin'
As promised, here are a few shots from my recent fishing trip to Lake Buchanan down in the Texas Hill Country.
The Bluebonnets were in full bloom.
At 2 miles, Lake Buchanan's dam is the longest multi-arch dam in the United States.
Fishing was tough this year. Matter of fact I did not catch a single striper that met the required 18 inch minimum length. I caught a few white bass or sand bass as we call them in my area and several undersized stripers and largemouth bass.
I've made this same trek three years in a row now and while this was the worst year for fishing, I had never seen so many wildflowers in bloom.
I could identify the bluebonnets and Indian Paints ...
but others I'm not sure of. Like these ...
No doubt some of you can name it.
And for those who emailed or left comments asking about the Amazon contest, I'm sad to report my entry got sacked like yesterday's groceries. I'll share my Publishers Weekly review once it is released in a few days. I'm proud to have made it as far as I did, yet bummed to be ousted. Now I've got to get on the ball and try to find a home for the novel as I truly do believe in the story.
