1.) I apologize for the lack of posting over the last few days. Essays and book reports have kept me preoccupied. I tell you what, I'm ready for a long Summer break out of school which equals fishing, fishing, fishing. I've got to get over to the Little River in Townsend, TN sometime before the Summer drought brings the water levels down to a trickle. I guess I'll bring my fly rod with me when I go to Troutfest. The Little River was BLOWN OUT Tuesday and yesterday. The river reached a height of 6,000 cfs. Average is 444, and right now the river has drastically decreased it's water level....1,120 cfs. I would say streams that aren't on a generation schedule will be "fishable" by Sunday or Monday. Still, be VERY careful when around the rivers, as they have a mind of their own, and can knock you off your feet before you say...Fish on. If you go, use a girdle bug or a black Pat's Rubber Legs in #6-10. Streamers will be very effective for a while with all of the high water. Stop by a fly shop and ask about the stream/river and get some guidance and tips.

2.) Yellowstone has calmed down in terms of earthquakes, but I can't tell whether or not it's a good thing or a bad thing. It's just unusual that the swarm of quakes under Yellowstone Lake stopped abruptly. I hope Yellowstone won't erupt for a long time. I would like to move out there and open up a fly shop close to the park.

How are you, Tyler? Here in Spain now the weather's horrible. There is a lot of snow and even Madrid is in a chaos. I cannot remember a thing like this happening all over Spain. It is bad for cars and trucks, but very good for us, because we have been fighting with snow balls all rhe evening and, obviusly for all our rivers that need the water a lot. I suppose there will be no drught here but a flood in melting times in my town.

On the other hand, I didn't know about earthquakes in Yellowstone. If the great volcano erupted there would be a global catastrophe, so, please, keep us informed about this issue, because in the Spnish news no one has said anithing yet.
Easy come back to school. Take care. Fernando.

I'm doing good, how about yourself? Of course I could be better with a fly rod in my hand, but it's the FINES DE SEMANA, and I'm glad. Snow, over in Spain, didn't know you guys recieved a lot of snow. Madrid's supposed to be warm and sunny this time of year isn't it?!?! Weird year in terms of weather. Here in North Carolina, the low temps may get down to zero w/ highs in the upper teens next week. Anywho, yeah Yellowstone is WAS moving, not at the moment, but it'll probably start up again...Will keep you guys posted.

Take Care,
Tyler, THFF
