OK, not really, but here I sit waiting for my fight back from Los Angeles. We have just been notified that our plane has hit a bird and therefore has to be taken in for repairs. My flight has been delayed 5 hours or more, and there are no other options other than just sitting here watching other fights come and go. So I guess, if you want to get technical, I am being held captive -- by a dead bird!
While sitting here, I did an Internet search for fly fishing near LA. Although not a fly fishing destination, I read where there are some reasonable streams within an hour or two of Beverly Hills, where I was this weekend for a conference. I wish I would have known that before I came, as I would have brought one of my tenkara rods. After the conference let out yesterday afternoon, I did go up into the local hills and did some hiking, but I would have loved to try my hand at catching some wild trout in Southern California.
Anyway, not to bore you too much, but I just wanted you to know that could have fished this weekend but didn't because I didn't do my homework. Bummer!
Not my plane, unfortunately.
