Well with this having been my last weekend spent in  NC before heading westward I fished with some guys who I met through the sport here.  Plan was to meet Sunday morning at 10.  I ended up heading down Saturday night and car camping just so I wouldn't have to wake up so early on Sunday.  Also took Blumpkins advice and invested in a head lamp for tying.

Arrived at the river with a slight drizzle.

Arriving early I headed to my favorite run and sure enough the fish were there and feeding.  My very first cast this guy came to hand and set a tone for the whole day.

Then the skies opened up and thunder and flashes of lightning were right on top of us.

While taking refuge in the car I figured, what the hell, why not stay another night.  The storm didnt let up at all so I headed to fly shop's parking lot to sleep again.  This is when things got interesting.  Around 1-2 am I get woken up by a flash light and someone knocking on my window... fuckin cops.  I  roll down my window and the first things he asks is "I need an id. And are there any weapons, alcohol, or drugs in the car?" I repond with " Theres a knife in my jacket in the back, and no drugs or alcohol."  Then he says "Is there any marijauna in the vehicle?"  I give him a look like seriously, then respond with "Isn't marijauna a drug?" Needless to say he didnt find this humerous.  He ended up calling in backup, now there's 4 cops and they are searching my car.  Finally they say I'm good and let me back in the jeep. Then he has the audasity to ask me what the fish are hitting.  I show him and then they left, now it's time for sleep.

Wake up in the a.m. and head up the road to the river.  I spot a big fish sitting on the edge of a seam and about the third or fourth drift got him to eat.

Awesome TR. I need get to them smokies sometime. Next time tell the fuzz to give you a reason they want to search your ride. You can say no, and there isn't alot they can do about it, other than try and make your evening a pain in the ass.

I ain't here for a long time. I'm here for a good time.

Good way to go out with a bang Chris.  Best of luck and have a hell of a time out west!

ya can't sleep in cars in Aspen or Vail CO either  ;)

Next time a cop ask to search your vehicle say, "Not without a warrant." They can't search or get a warrant without probable cause, saying NO is not probable cause. But always be polite.

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

me -There's a season?

You and that olive soar mouthed every fish worth catching on the douche...well done!

Not a bad couple of days at all.

Last year around late fall / early spring I spent several weeks off and on for over a month sleeping out of my truck in the hatchery parking lot while working on a job in the area.  Never had any problems.  Sucks you got harassed by the cops.

Good luck out west!
