To follow up - Tweetsie was fun with the little one. I hate chair lifts.

Had a little time this evening. Went to another flow. Only one green sunfish to show for myself. A far cry from yesterday's showing.

WdMtTrout called and asked if I was up for a smallie float. "hell yes," I replied! But before we got on the road he canceled because of work and time restraints. But I had decided to wade up there anyway. On the road, just before losing cell service, he called again and was ready to go. I just about passed him at a stop n rob and we were able to work the shuttle quicker than was planned. Plan "B" was a "shorter" float of unknown distance, but we knew it was less than the 6.5 miler that was the initial float.

Not sure if the banana boat was putting the fish off of top water action, but I quickly went subsurface with a clouser. Punes came to hand readily but the bigger fish eluded the fly and the grubs that MtTrout, as the oarsman, tossed.

Then in the evening we switched up and he went with a sneakypete and caught a much better bass off the bank. Switching once more and now with a firetiger wiggleminnow, caught a nice rod bender which made my day...

We packed a little light on the beer for this 3 and 1/3 mile float... but had reserves at the takeout for the win.

ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

WMT gets prettier and prettier every time I see him - spinning combo and all.

I've hit three rivers this week. First day was badass. The other two blew balls. My plan to fish today was a wash - live to fish another day.

I'd tap that.

I've pounded three rivers this week. I can't shake the taste of river bassin'. Back to the water I went for the fourth time in five days.

Another productive day it was. Heavy precipitation yesterday evening had screwed me on some flows -- but others appeared unscathed. Bring it.

I lost the first three fish I contacted. Wtf. Maybe I need larger hooks? Size 4 is what I've been using. Nailed this. Finally, one to hand.

After only wading up maybe 20' this fish put a deep bend in the rod. The largest spotted bass I've caught in the area. A scrappy species they are. Hell of a fight.

At one point my line got wadded up in my rod tip. I jerked a little too aggressively out of frustration -- resulting in a broken rod tip. Fuck me. I'll have to get this fixed.

A tributary.

Strip much? Every joint I've got on a few fingers is down to the meat from stripping line. May have to grab a pair of gloves. Sore as hell.

I lost a beast today. Disheartening. Very. Next time!


Some nice uns there.  I'm off to Randolph County tomorrow.

Where? Kayaking or wading? I'm taking off tomorrow.


Thinking maybe roanokes.....I'd like to get into those.


Downriver float with Jim.  No Roanoke's above Coleridge dam.  Just bass, carp, and gar, crappie.


I see. I'm thinking maybe the U.

Another day. Swung little man by daycare and headed to my destination. Stopped for some tape for my fingers. It worked perfectly. Also, borrowed a rod tip for my broken fly rod.

Met this little fella. Almost laid my hand on it while making my way between boulders.

Caught a few. Lost a few. Waded back to the truck to hit another river.

It sucked. First time trying it out.

Yesterday - One rock bass to hand. That's it! Dingy water.

@Onslow - Here's the damn dam situation.
