Fishing Log and Rainy Days

Rain and more rain. A lot can probably be learned with the water up and muddy. I'd love to be out right now in some of my favorite spots just to see what the rivers look like right now. Where the slow water is. Problem is, I'd like to see any of a thousand spots right now. My brain wants knowledge to sift through. At the same time, that is a lot of effort for no physical reward. So instead, I stay home. If someone wants to pay me to do this, get in touch.

Been trying to be more creative in how I look at river smallmouth fishing, setting goals on new things to try, etc. In the rain induced boredom, I found myself drifting through my fishing logs, looking for a pattern in the numbers. Sometimes this becomes an activity more like looking at the back of baseball cards. I compare years and streams over those years for some nugget of information to enjoy.

I am making this a best and worst type post, if only to throw up something to surpass in the future.
