I fished the Soho Saturday with Glassfisher. We had planned on this after the Florida vacations, since I missed out on some salt fishing Glass was going to show me. He wanted to fish the flats in some lagoon.
Anyways, I planned to get up early Saturday morning around 4:30am and started to get my gear ready. I checked the local TN weather and said cold and rainy. The temp in the car said 21 deg, and it was damn cold. I met up with glass at our designated meeting point around 6:00 am and snapped a pic of the overhead temp gage...still 21 degs.Guests are not allowed to view images in posts, please Register or Login

Glass headed down stream, and I went up stream to fish a slow run with the new fly.I managed a coupe of small browns and bows, there colors were beautiful.
Later around noon, we moved down river to another spot that looked promising.We fished riffles and runs catching some nice browns and rainbows. Then the snow starting coming down. We had been fighting ice in the guides all morning, and it looked like the same for the rest of the afternoon. My hands were getting numb and the pain was increasing by the minute.Guests are not allowed to view images in posts, please Register or Login
It was a good fight.
Later in the afternoon, I got a chance to payback glass, by netting a big brown he was fighting in the shallow currents and riffles. This fish had fought him around 50 yards down stream to my location. I snapped a quick picture of it with Glasses camera and released the fish to watch it run upstream back to its lair.
We fished until 5:15pm and managed a few more rainbows and browns. It was a perfect day to be out on the water, and we ended it in our usual ritual, a cold beer.Guests are not allowed to view images in posts, please Register or Login
On a side note. I have the pentex optio and the battery looses charge or the camera thikns it does in cold temperatures. The camera was charged and during some pic's it the camera said low battery and shut itself off. When we got back into the car and things warmed up, the camera worked fine and the batter indicator icon said I had two full bars left. Does any else see this with the pentex optio camera?
Nice job...I mean yall suck, ya redd stomppin' bastages hehehehehe
Batteries don't like cold weather do they. Just put camera in underwear to keep it warm.... ///?
Nice day ya'll had TP, ive been trying to tie up some of those juju b"s. As for the batteries, ive always heard to put batteries in the refrigerator to keep them, but dont know how it works for newer batteries. Just keep your camera next to your nuts ( not the ones walt sent you) thats the warmest place on the body.
yeah, you guys just plain out and out suck!
Yeah! What Kieth said!
Y'all are too hard core for me. Ice in the guides is a sign from above that it's time to go home
The Olympus doesn't take as good pictures, but at least it don't fizzle out in the snow. It was a good day, not a lot of fish, but the all good quality. Here's some pics of the big brownies we landed and a parting shot for the day... boos and brews! 0--0 Cheers!
