So... as I write this I am 'at the cabin'! I was able to leave, with permission from the local government, Sunday, returning to Slate Run for some projects I want to complete and to do some fishing. I headed down to the local metropolis to pick up some materials. Masked up, and with my … Continue reading Covid-19 Getaway
Finally I can give you some information about what is happening up in one of the runs at least! I am fortunate to be friends with someone that frequents the area and he got to fish Cedar Run this past weekend. With air and water temperatures falling from the previous week, the water temperature must … Continue reading 4-16-2020: Report from Cedar Run

Forsythia outta control!Shiver me blooms!The forsythia must be thinking: "Is spring ever really going to arrive?" I saw it snowing when I woke up this morning and said ".. it looks pretty."

First of all, Happy Easter! Well, the past few weeks have been interesting to say the least. The 'Stay at Home' orders across the states vary a bit I think.

We've all heard 'What a difference 24 hours makes", as the weather has played this stunt on us before. Yesterday and today was no exception. I took a walk up our little hill we own yesterday. When I say that, I just don't feel quite right inside. I think I have more of a belief … Continue reading 3-23-2020: 24 Hours, Rock Piles, Oak Trees and a Fun Guy
It has taken me a while to get back here to the website - many apologies. There's something about gaining a 'Certificate of Occupancy' that just seemed to preoccupy me and as a result - I simply have not been adding content. I am still seeking content from our members and this plea has been … Continue reading 6-18-2019: My June Trip to the Cabin
Great Picture Casting on Slate Run
We woke up this morning and it was somewhat 'white' around here. Yes, hopefully the LAST reminder that Winter occurred this past season - happened again last night. Yep, it snowed! At least it was just a trace of the white stuff that blanketed the ground. The driveway must have been too warm as it … Continue reading 4-15-2019: Spring Has Sprung Right?!
This entry comes to us from SRS member Dan Helm. The Incredible Mickey Fin Fish! How many of us have been in this situation? It’s late afternoon and the air is starting to cool. The wind has died down and the sun is slowly sinking in the western sky. You’ve got the stream to yourself … Continue reading 4-16-2018: What Am I Doing Wrong?
