Kirk Deeter's New Year's Resolutions

By Tim Romano & Kirk Deeter

Never to early to start thinking about the New Year's Resolutions. The standards, like shedding pounds, watching my foul language, etc., will still apply, just as they have since 1989. However, I have some flyfishing-specific add-ons for 2008.

I resolve:

To catch no fewer than 20 fish species on the fly this year. Branching out is what most anglers (and this sport) need. I'll start with carp.

To fish at least three more days on the lake and/or river with my son than we did last year (which was pretty many, but there should always be more).

To take at least one of the rods and reels gathering dust in my garage, and give them to one or more of the neighbor kids, no strings attached, lessons included upon request.

To leave the river in the middle of the epic evening hatch so I'm home exactly when I told my wife I would be. Strike that ... that ain't ever going to happen.

To finish the book manuscript I've been working on for two years.

To invent a bass fly, and name it the "Kinky Friedman."

To catch at least one trout on a dry fly in every calendar month of the year.

What are yours?

Leaving during an epic hatch is impossible. A hint to those to eliminate the night or nights on the couch. Tell your better halves that you will be home when it is dark. Don't fool yourselves boys. Even though sleeping on the couch is like camping, it nice to climb into your own bed.My New Year's List consists of:1. Matching Deeter's Monthly Dry Fly Challenge.2. Reservoir fishing more often as it is relaxing.3. Catching Carp, Bass, Pike, and Wipers on the fly instead of chasing after Trout all of the time.4. More bird hunting.5. Developing a new streamer. Name to be decided when complete.6. Take a rustic trout fishing trip. Bare essentials!!!

KD-Since it has been on the list since 1989 (the year we were married), I would appreciate losing the foul language to move to the top of the list... especially since I know you won't come home on time during a hatch.SD
