Healthy Regenerative Lifestyle
The Boys Weekend Out
You owe it to yourself to get away from time to time. This year I went with my son in law; John, to Bennett Springs Missouri, to go fly fishing for trout. Everyone else caught some fish, I didn’t do as well but still had a great time.
We may not live on a farm, but we can grow where we live.
Fly Fishing At Bennett Springs State Park

One way to have a healthy sustainable lifestyle is to take a break from your routine and just get away. I don’t do this as often as I would like, but each year I try to go back to Missouri to see old friends and do some fishing.

Bennett Spring State Park is managed by the Missouri Conservation Department. They bring in fish to stock the river for all the fisherman that come to the park. This was the third week that the park had been open and our tag numbers were almost eleven thousand.
Years ago, when I worked back around that area I use to go down for opening week. You would see people fishing almost shoulder to shoulder.
By the third week the fishing is not that intense and you can get out and have part of the river to yourself.
In between being on the river, we would gather to eat and tell fish stories or talk about hunting. Almost all the food we ate had been shot or caught by one of the guys attending our little get together.
As expected, the time went too quick and we were back on the road to catch a flight back east. Even though I am a little tired from the travel, all went great and came back relaxed and ready to try and remember what it was I did for a living before I left.
Now that is when you know you have taken your mind off things!
