I could take you on a trip down memory lane of all that was 2012 at Troutrageous!, but I wrote a post about not writing long year end recaps so I won’t. Quite honestly, I didn’t feel like it was a banner year around here anyway, so there’s not a great reason to re-live it all. I wrote one relatively viral entry about holy livestock (that I thought was just going to be a “throwaway” post) and that was pretty much it.
Not quite. I caught some native & stocked brook trout with Owl Jones in the Smokies back in May that started the year off in the right direction, but that was about it. Not a single brookie afterwards. Boo.
|Owl with Brookie. I caught some too, I swear…|
#2. Fish New (or Different) Water
The afforementioned Smoky Mountains in North Carolina, Salt in Islamorada, Florida, Wyoming with RD, Tenkara in Salt Lake City, Utah, a heck of a lot more warmwater than usual, and all capped off with a return trip to Central, NY. Heck, hardly fished ol’ reliable at all. Big win.

#3. Lose A Few More Pounds
Um…let’s move on…
|My soundtrack for the year|
#4. Get This Crappy Blog (Just A Little) More Organized
Put together the advertising rate card & surpassed the social media milestones…the rest, not so much.

#5. Give Back
Ugh, don’t go there…
|I’ve got nothing here…so instead I present Psy….everybody loved Psy in 2012.|
With that, let’s put 2012 in the rear view…and bring on 2013.
