I see how y'all Californ High-A bruthaz roll. So segregated it'll be, just like in South Africa... :wink

Valuable lessons learned. Don't fly stand by across the country, don't fly via Philthydelphia, don't party like you won the lottery the night before and don't EVER fuck with Israel
I arrived at LAX at 2:30AM to an awaiting LE bloke called The Wandering Blues. We made haste to the land of the trouts

Looks like a fun trip, Mike.  I'm glad you caught a golden trout.........but I thought you once told me that you caught one in Courthouse Creek and another in Thompson Creek in Transylvania County several years ago?   :o

Dude, that was a banana troot, the type you are finding in PC in Meth Country.

These goldens are native, California's state fish and were the Little Kern River variety. I had words with about 20 or so of them and they all told me the same thing..GTFO of Cali. I am still on cloud nine and yes, the hike in will about hurt us flat landers to the point where you need several days to really acclamate.

RBC - I could never bring myself to eat a libtard fish. It's sacriledge. I ate brookies with Franzen in CO a few years ago and I thought they tasted like shit. In all honesty, trout are shit tasting fish (all fresh water fish for that matter, except Walleye). I prefer Mahi Mahi, Halibut or Orange Roughy to be honest.

Doug, might as well buy a 10ft werner ladder and jack up a 28" Lahontan on Pyramid. At least that's what I am doing next year. That lake is stupid with big LC's

My bud caught this earlier this year: https://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?fbid=10201907091258724&set=a.3285668860375.2122891.1227262992&type=3&theater

Looks like a solid trip.  Well played.  Too many bird fingers though.

Flea is not the best bassist of all time.

twinbridges

Well, that is some fine country.  The golden is clearly worth the hike.  Great report....
