Go Navy....Beat Army...

Alicia and I at the tailgate...

My dad and I at the game....


What an awesome field. I was thoroughly impressed with Lincoln Financial.


Not the same Hummer that I use on our guided trip, but sure wish it was....


Mids...


These guys were impressive....



 The first fly over...


Just got back from Philly this weekend and had a great till at the Army - Navy game. This was one of the games that I can cross off my list that I have attended. My parent went last year as well as this year with some close friends. They stayed at the historic district, which was an awesome area in the evening. I must say that I have attended many sporting events, but this is high on my list for sure. I think next year I will goto the game as well in DC. Next stop at the end of this month....Winter Classic in Pittsburgh...

Grip and Grin...





I had these pictures in my possession for a little while and figured it would be a great time to post them. All three of these shots were taking during fishing trips. The top photo is both of the John's (former Orvis School students) and now good friends posing it up. They are not new to the blog some of there previous pics are also archived. The next two are of Mike also a Orvis School Student. He's putting into practice what he learned from the School.
Nice work guys...

Day Off from Work...












Had the day off from work, so Mike and I went to our favorite Brookie stream. The stream was low as we thought, but the fish would still feed on dries all year long. They were super spooky today. One time I got with in 25 feet of a nice plunge, and the fish went into hiding instantly.  All in all a great day. Enjoy the photos from this morning.

This isn't Philly but those are Eagles...





Larry and I decided to do a little fishing after work yesterday. As we were getting to the Yough we noticed a couple of large birds, as it turned out there were 2 Bald Eagles. They also must have decide to do some fishing that day, and I bet they had better luck then we did. The highlight of our little excursion to the river was a 22-24 inch fall spawn great color wild brown trout. The bad news is we only had a cell phone, we did get pics but they do this fish no justice. Larry hit this beast just swinging a size #8 black Wolley Bugger, he was the last fish we expected at this spot. We may head out again tomorrow and see if any other large fish have moved up. If they did we are going to try to stick a hook in there face...

Who Dey....






I know this is not fishing related but....
Had to show the pics from my weekend off, as you can see I spent it in the "nati" watching my boys. This was my 30th b-day present from my wife and it was awesome!( birthday was in sept. ) So I must admit I am the biggest Bengals fan this side of Cincinnati. And even know CP blow another game in the redzone in the 4th quarter I still loved every second. This post is gonna be pic heavy but the wife and I had great seats and got awesome pics! So even if you are not a fan enjoy the great pics...
