Instagram Killed My Blog

I finally figured out one of the big reasons I blog less. Instagram. I really enjoy sharing the photos from different blog-worthy events, and the convenience and instant gratification of Instagram has wedged itself between me and this blog. Just like the remote control killed the TV dial, Instagram has taken a big bite out of my blog. That being said, minidiscs destroyed my CD collection for a mere winter and spring before I saw the light. (That is until Apple came along. But hey, I still buy CDs from time to time).

No skipping unlike your pesky, portable CD player with the 10-sec anti-sock.
They both have their rolls (blogging and Instagram). Now that I’ve identified the competition between the two I think I can make sure they are both getting the attention they deserve. 
To that end, here are some (blog exclusive) photos from a short trip to the cabin this weekend. 
Highlights include a hefty bass hitch David described as “very smooth.” David’s first Kayak ride (he liked it a lot, no tears despite the uneasy look on his face in the photo). More fishing shots with the three David’s (grandpa, daddy, and little David. 
Caught off the dock, and not in season. So we threw it back.

He had fun, trust me. 
My son is the coolest. 

Short Video: Standing on Water, Fly Rod in Hand

Here is a quick video of the new kayak/paddle board in action. Hopefully, there is much more to come.

It was a quick outing. I wanted to take out the new toy and see she performed. The Nalu is a kayak/SUP hybrid from Ocean Kayak and I was hoping it would open up a buttload of fishing spots. I’ve felt handcuffed by the waters around me until now. No longer. 
I didn’t get any shots from a distance of me on the board-yak, so for that, I’m sorry. I also caught about the smallest fish I could have, but it doesn’t matter, I’m ready to go.
