I was out and about on Saturday, stopped in at the Ski & Tennis station to buy a facemask for my lazy son who snagged a three day pass to Showshoe, only problem is the weather, -9! But warming later in the week... Stopped in at the fly shop, checked the supply of Mexico Returns... they're not exactly flying off the shelf, despite inquires and promises of "I'll pick up three copies for my son's and myself." Checked the river flow and thought, "Wow, I could be there in an hour and fish 'till dark, throwing streamers for big browns!"
I geared up and headed on down to the river, "Whoa, she's flowing mighty hard!, what the fuk!"

When we got to the spot, I stepped on down, saw the fly, and then proceeded to take a leak. Stripped off the jacket, un-fastened the waders, and then the reverse process. Took a look at the river in the fading light, checked the camera, looked through the photos, and watched the Sally video as I hiked back up the trail to the field and we began our hike out. I was all the way at the end of the field when I realized that I didn't pick up the fly, "What a fuckin dumbass," I exclaimed! The god looked at me like I was stupid as I turned around and started the walk back down to the river. Third time is a charm, as they say and I retrieved the fly! It was getting dark when we go back to the car.
I hope the next trip is better....
Damn bru, you is a cheapskate. I woulda left that fly for some fukkin heron to choke on.
Well, on the bright side, now you know she can go on point to either side. Your dog swings both ways. -0-
The release should have been over and down by 11ish. That's what the USGS site says. WTF?Nice try.
Just don't want ya'll to think I'm a slackered or anything, after getting my Sunday chores done while I was waiting for the weatherman's prediction of clearing weather in the afternoon, I took the god out and we headed back up to the river hoping to catch the low water and toss some streamers till dark.
There wasn't any improvement in the weather on the drive up.
