A fly fishing primer

After a whirlwind trip to Indianapolis for Caleb's high school graduation (which included a 24-hour stop in St. Louis because it was so much cheaper to fly through the Lou), we landed in Connecticut for a little vacation time with Josh's family.

The trip originally began as a fly fishing trip between Josh's brother Nick and his step-dad, Eddie... then Nate wanted in on the action... then we decided to throw our hats in the ring as well.

The weather wasn't exactly warm... but pleasant enough. The guys spent two days out fishing and the rest of our week was spent simply relaxing. We managed to escape with only one day of rain and ample enough sunshine on a few days to give one or two of us a slight toasting.

We also took a side trip up to Providence, RI to see one of Josh's best friends from college and his wife. Michael and Onalee had a baby girl, Alia, who we had never met and we couldn't pass up the opportunity to see her while we were so close. They surprised us with a delicious surf and turf meal... the lobster and steak definitely made our trip to see them worth the drive!!

Here is the Lauer/Glowacki clan on the beach during the last morning of the trip...
