MORE PICS ADDED FROM 2006


 


Special thanks to my good fishin' buddy, Bob Pooner, for sharing his little slice of heaven with me throughout the summer of 2003. I have thoroughly enjoyed being an eager student to his continued lessons in the Zen of finesse bass fishing. I can think of no greater gift than to be given the opportunity to become reacquainted with my inner child, and at the same time, actually get some use out of my BS in Zoology. Although I wasnt paid to be an amateur naturalist all summer long, I gained more wealth in the form of learning patience than any salaried job could ever pay me. You cannot put a pricetag on good company and inner peace.

Growing up on the east coast, the bulk of my fishing experiences have been in salt water, and i would use fish the size of those in the pics below for bait. Being landlocked in Colorado, I found fly fishing too complicated since you have to think like a bug AND a fish! I couldnt really enjoy lake fishing either, having no boat, and was limited to how far out i could cast from shore. Having the attention span of a gnat, I go batshit waiting for my rod to go ding-a-ling.

So the HoneyHole was just my speed. This tiny pond along the S. Platte northeast of Denver is making a remarkable comeback after years of neglect. Bordered by an old landfill to the south and a sewer treatment plant to the west, it really isnt even recognized as a body of water with a name on every map Ive studied so far. Im certain in the past it has merely served as overflow during the years the S. Platte swells beyond its banks. No permanent structures can be built on this property, as it sits in the 50 year flood plain. But it is an ornithologists wet dream, being one of the super highways for migrating birds out west.

Some of the birds seen so far at the HoneyHole include: American White Pelican, Double Crested Cormorant, Great Blue Heron, Great Egret, Little Egret, Snowy Egret, Little Blue Heron, Black Crowned Night Heron, Yellow Crowned Night Heron, Cannada Goose, Mallards, Pintails, Cinnamon Teal, Canvasback, Bufflehead, Ruddy Duck, Turkey Vulture, Osprey, Bald Eagle, Cooper's Hawk, Swainsons Hawk, Red-Tailed Hawk, Golden Eagle, American kestrel, Peregrine falcon, American Coot, Sandhill Crane, Killdeer, American Avocet, Mourning Dove, Barn Owls, Great Horned Owl, Great grey Owl, Common Poorwill, Ruby Throated Hummingbird, Broad Tailed Humming Bird, Rufous Hummingbird, Belted Kingfisher, Red-Headed Woodpecker, Downy Woodpecker, Northern Flicker, Barn Swallows, Stellar's jay, Grey Jays, Black Billed Magpies, American Crow, Common Raven, Tufted Titmouse, American Dippper, European Starling, Red-Winged Blackbird, Yellow-Headed Blackbird, Great Tailed Grackle & Common Grackle.

The HoneyHole is also home to beaver, fox, coyote, snapping turtles, crawfish, mule deer, bullfrogs, raccoon, muskrat, and naked cam hos, such as myself, just to name a few. Oh....... and BooBoo, of course. Although the largemouth bass Ive caught so far are small in comparisom with the hawgs you guys catch, what I lack in size, I more than make up for in enthusiasm. And I love to fish naked! Do you like to fish naked too?
