We fished on the Umpqua river and put in at a boat ramp past Elkton. We are hoping to get a huge Chinook Salmon!
My job was to HOLD ON TO THE ROPE while Eric parked the truck. He said with both hands, but you can see that I'm rebellious and only held on with one hand and took a picture with the other! I simply HAD to get a picture of my cute leopard print rubber boots! hee hee!
Yea! We're on the river!
This is our home sweet home for the next 24 hours! We are camping right here in the very middle of the river! You can see where Eric put the anchor out.
Here's the view from the port side.
Here's the view from the starboard side. Haha, aren't you impressed with my boat lingo?
The first thing Eric did was bait up the poles.
He's using anchovies for bait.
At times like this I'm glad I"m a girl and I don't have to put the bait on!
Then he put the poles in and we waited.
He's still the one after 33 years!
Just waiting to catch a fish!
Waiting and waiting!
It's starting to rain, but never fear, we are all zipped up in here!
Just hanging out with my man!
Eric eating and watching the poles!
More wine madam? Eric braved the rain and refilled my glass!
We were as snug as a bug in a rug!
Time for a movie! Eric just plugged in our little portable DVD playing to the battery and we were in business!
Yup, we're really roughing it! haha!
Now if I knew that this is what goes on when they go fishing, I would have gone a long time ago! It was raining out, but we were inside all warm and cozy watching movies! We watched four movies!
Time for a nap!
Waiting and waiting for a fish! We still have not had one bite!
Eric called one of his buddies up river to see if they've had any luck.
More waiting and relaxing.
I am loving spending all this time with my husband! Night is really starting to fall now.
Did I mention how cozy this was???
It's getting really dark now I think it's almost time for bed!
Good morning! Look at this gorgeous view!
I forgot my mirror! Augh!!!!
Pretty inventive idea don't ya think?
Eric tying knots in the lines.
We read a morning devotional together.
He's really good at all of this fishing stuff!
Tying the lures.
Time for breakfast! Eric made hash browns....
Eggs and sausage.
Eric got a call from one of the guys in one of the other boats downstream.
More of the same.
I am loving this!
