2015 Season Review

Travis Frank

2015 came and went like a flash.  I find that life moves so fast these days that I hardly have time to sit back and enjoy the moments that make this fisherman's life so special.  Years ago I would finish each fishing trip by plopping down on my computer and recapping the day with a story.  I'm glad for those times because I still go back through the archives and relive those moments.  I've made quite a few memories with quite a few friends and I'm thankful for being a fishing guide.  2015 was no exception to the fish tales and stories.  It's just that I didn't have the time after each trip to write about them.  I did, however, take hundreds of photos and I'm glad to be able to post some of them here.  Hopefully these pictures tell a story that inspires you to want to hit the water.  The tug from a fish is good for the soul.  Not only because of the fish itself, but what it took to get you to the point of setting the hook, the place you caught it, and the people you enjoyed it with.  I like to call it, livin' the dream.
