4 in One. Some evenings I just get lucky.

I've got 4 things to accomplish and only one evening in which to accomplish them.

I love riding, photography, fishing and shooting. And I'm gonna pack them all into one evening and see what happens. I'm going to ride my KLR250 to one of my favorite farm ponds where I can shoot and fish (not shoot at fish) and I'm taking pictures along the way. So sit back, if ya like, and watch the show.

After getting home from work I grabbed a quick snack, threw the essentials on the KLR, snagged my fishing backpack and flogged the 250 down the driveway.

I keep all of my fishing gear in that backpack....when I get the urge, it's grab and go.




My POS camera I carry in the tankbag and who knows what's in that camo-wrapped pack on the back.


Living in rurals areas does have it's advantages. SE Ohio isn't the most beautiful area on the planet but it's home for me and I like it here....





Nice little farm ponds full of largemouth bass dot the landscape. See, there's one now....





But that isn't the one we're heading to.


Look........there's another one over there....




But we're not going to that one either. No, the one I'm taking you to is way off the beaten path.

Up this here lane.............




And through this here gate......




Don't forget to lock it back up after going thru........




Boy, do I love small farms like this.......
















So rich in character and history. This one belongs to a good friend of mine who allows me access any time I want. You don't find fiends like that every day.

You betcha.


On past the ol' brick s**t house we go......










Another gate to maneuver through....




And once again, don't forget to lock it after goin through.......




Now on through the field stopping for a photo op now and then.....










"What say there Mr. Hopper, one of your antennae are missing."

"What's that you say? I can't hear too well, I'm missing one of my antennae."





See the KLR?





See Mister Hopper?

The field runs along this ridge for aways before it drops off toward the pond.....
























I had to admire the color of that old pump engine. That shade of green is just beautiful..........





That would make a great color for a 250 dual-sport. Don't ya think?


A little further we find this scene.......




Drop down over the hill and we see this.....




My final destination for the evening.

Nice, huh?

Sure looks green. Beautiful fishing ponds. Our land is brown and our ponds are dry. Send rain our way. Thanks. Great report and photos.

This spot is so quiet you can hear spiders spinning their webs.......










I got my fly rod together and tied on a small popper.





And it wasn't long till it was..................................






................BASS ON!









All of the ones I caught were small but they always put up a good fight. Bass on the fly, baby.........














There be bass here.........

































I caught a few fish then changed gears for the fourth part of my mission tonight.

I unwrapped that camo-clad package that was strapped to the rear rack of the KLR........Wow! Is that cool or what!!??









I loaded a couple mags and proceded to tune 'er in. I wanted to get the laser sight adjusted and that's exactly what I did.




I've been involved with firearms in one form or another for most of my life. Competing, plinking, smithing and collecting........I now have two.

Ringing steel with a .22 semi-auto is as much fun as riding, fishing and photography. Mission accomplished and it's back to the water. Popper frog looks good enough to eat don't it....





Well, big-mouth here thought so anyway.......















The light was starting to fade and it was time to think about packing up and heading home.......

Thanks.

Usually in mid-August I'm mowing dirt. This year I have an over abundance of lawn to mow. We've had a perfect mix of rain and sunshine this summer in our area.

OK, the ones I caught were smaller. But I agree, the fun is in the catchin'. We do grow 'em bigger around here though.

See...




That better?
