In search of the God particle
I read last week that scientists are close to discovering the God particle. The European Organization for Nuclear Research is using a massive Hadron Collider to smash atoms together in search of the subatomic God Particle. According to the article, they are smashing this stuff together at 99.9 percent of the speed of light and think that this collision will release the information they believe will reveal this particle. No doubt they feel that all the answers will be found when this occurs.
I am not an anti science guy, so don't take my comments as such...but I have to ask myself why? On a purely personal level, I think that they, as do all of us on some level perhaps, long to nail down the existance of the Devine.
I also wonder if they have ever caught a native brook trout and looked closely at the amazing handiwork that went into creating such a creature? The lines, the colors, and to think that there are a bazillion other things within eyeshot at any given nanosecond that proclaim the same amazing results. Is it all a grand accident? I think not.
They can spend all the money they want to try and derive a conclusion that is just as easily found by stepping outside and taking a good look around. I wish them luck, but will be less amazed at their findings than I was when being right there when my children were born. Seeing my four kids take their first breath was far more profound.

Hooking up with old friends
This weekend we are having a summer get together with all our fishing buddies. Usually we see each other two times a year, winter and fall, but this year we are having a good old fasioned southern get together. A big meal at an amazing restaurant that specializes in southern cooking, and afterwords a casting contest which is a fly anglers version of pitching horseshoes. Should be a grand time and I am looking forward to reporting the events.
Fishing new waters
Another thing that is happening this weekend is a trip to some new water. Not exactly sure which location, but with over 800 miles of fishable water within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the choices are limitless.
We have some things in the works here at The Perfect Drift that I think you will find interesting. There is a very unique rod builder we are working with to review, and another gentleman with an amazing story that links him directly to one of the greates bamboo rod builders of all time. If we can get everything together, the information is gonna be amazing.
Have a great week everyone.
Here is a cool tune to start your week:
