I've fished with a couple (that I know of) board members in the past, and casually know a couple of others. I guess when you get called "fuck face" it's time to poke your head in the door.

I didn't grow up in the desert, but currently live in one. Not by choice, but in your 30s, a man's gotta work. Like a lot of you, I listen to Earle, McMurtry, Son Volt, etc., eat red meat, and drink beer. Though I've moved away from it, this is my "home" river:

I try to get back each Spring to float it for three days

Desert smallmouth may not be the norm, but I'm happy they call it home

I'd rather drink a bottle, but sometimes you have to make due with cans

Usual ribeyes for the fire

Kayaks are better, but canoes carry more. Plus, if you eat it, it's a true yard sale. (I took the pic; didn't live it)

Where I live is much drier (4" of rain last year). There are mountains close, but to fish, I drive 140 miles to this

It wouldn't be much in Idaho, but here, it's gold. The fish aren't huge. This is about average, and though introduced (obviously), do self-sustain on some level. There are some bigger Browns, but I never seem to take pictures of them.

Or, I can drive 7+ hours to get to the nearest river most of you guys have heard of to fish with tiny crap. There is a sz 26 dry in there somewhere

Every summer I make frequent trips to the Rockies. Drive up and car camp for a week or so at a time. (sometimes I do carry a pack and spend the night thinking about cheeseburgers)

[img]http://i1249.photobucket.com/album ... .jpg[/img]

Like to hike up stuff like this

Have one river, actually a Spring Creek, that I make a point to spend a few days on every August

[img]http://i1249.photobucket.com/album ... .jpg[/img]

Has some nice fish and they don't mind 0x

Some other places for these guys (my fish-not in Colorado ;)

This is the only fish I've ever caught on a Double Bunny

If I could, yep

Clear, concise, cohesive, and coherent. That is how it's done.

But then again, I've flown under the radar for 6 years, so how should I know?
