It's like clockwork. My neighbor planted this Redbud tree about 15 years ago. It never fails to put on a show. It also buds out in red at the same time the bass are waking up from their winter sleep, and start to bite!
Two things I keep in the back of my truck in spring... mud boots and fishing pole. Although 'calendar' spring does not begin until March 20th, 'meteorological' spring begins today on March 1st.
I hit the neighborhood pond on my way to work. I've only got time for a cast or two.
On cast number two I hooked one! I must need a sharper hook though. I reeled him in close, he was a small one, but flipped off the hook just before I landed him. Oh man!!! Just another fish story for now. What a great way to start my workday.
