TR (brief) - wherein burgerthumb finally gets out

Post by burgerthumb » Wed Apr 06, 2011 7:12 pm

So, kids, a broken ankle, and life conspire to decrease time on the water, but I found an opening a few weeks ago and here are the results.

I was on the road at 5, started to walk in by 8:30. In the late winter snowiness I was totally lost in a place I've been 4 or so times. I walked 20 minutes in the wrong direction to start out the day. This was my first day on a newly healed broken ankle, but luckily it held up.

I managed to take a few photographs. Here they are.

Not sure how that little piece of cellophane (it's not a san juan worm) got on my otherwise pretty fish, kinda junks up the picture. Man, it was nice to drift north of the rust belt for a spell.

NIce fish! Broken ankles take forever to heal, and I am gonna say that is a Marlboro red wrapper thingy.

Yea. My money is on you had the wrapper in the same pocket as your camera and when you go the camera out, the wrapper fell and stuck to the fishey. But you never noticed until now, because you were probably stoned to the bone, that day.

Nice river and fish.
