 Just a shout out to all my old Lee's fishing page buds . Its been a while since I've posted looks like its been some time since others posted as well.  

 Well here is a short update on things out here in the Hills of South Dakota . Weather this year much cooler and wetter than normal.  Large amounts of snow late into the spring brought flooding and to date or streams coming out of the lakes are well above normal.  Some still over thier banks.  

 So as you can imagine fly fishing has been tough if not near impossible.  Although I did find a ton of nice bows above the lakes . I was able to catch several beautiful Bows averaging 16 inches.  Also caught a few small Brookies . Was a beautiful day other then 40 MPH winds.  

  Now a little about me and the family.  The grandson is growing like a weed . Smart as all can be . Hes quite a hoot. The Mrs is doing well . I've been trying to get her back into fly fishing but she seems to lack interest.  Myself I've been fighting the gout and a few other ailments but still above ground and trudging along . I am now part of the Rapid  City project healing waters group.  I've tied a few flies with the group.  The mrs bakes cookies and muffins for them which they are all grateful.  Jay has been doing a rod building class with them. Pretty awesome.  

 Well that's a quick update I hope someone will stop in and find this post and chime in with comments and a update about themselves.  Tight lines.  Dave V

Hello to you as well.  Things are some what slow for me at this time.  My fishing bud from Alabama is not up at this time and should be here around mid July.  He had a case of pneumonia.  I have ventured out at this time.  I don't have the energy I used too so I am getting a little laze in my old age.  Will be 77 in July.  Taking all kinds of meds and I am not sure some of them are making my muscles ack.  My afib seems to be OK at this time and I get a cancer check in Sept for my prostate. I as well hope others see this and reply.

Thanks
Lee

Good hearing from you Lee.  Sorry to hear about your health issues.  Hopefully they get those meds correct.  Side effects can be bad for sure . Double 7s coming up in July.   That's pretty cool.  Hopefully your friend from  Alabama can make it up your way so you both can wet a line . How's the streams out your way  ? Was your winter long like Maine  ? It was a long cold one here . Farmers are way behind planting crops.  Some might not even get one in because thier fields are still under water.  Well like you said I hope more will post . It would be nice to hear from everyone
