My First Trout of 2012-TR

Post by Lurgee » Fri Mar 09, 2012 4:11 pm

[report]

76 Days

That's how long its been since I've last been next to water with fishing intentions. This may be the longest stretch I've been in the last 1/2 of my life. I blame my knee primarily...naw, I blame it entirely. I have been working hard getting stronger and healthier and the weather had taken a nice turn for the better. So I made a plan to suit up, head for the hills and make delicate presentations of fur and feathers in an upstream direction.

But then I changed my mind.
Image
Made a change from business to bizness
Image
Changed the bag from business to bugs
Image
Checked my surroundings and saw that this must be a good spot, people were camped out
Image
Changed venues a couple times but found what I was looking for, and there was much to celebrate. The greenback slitnecks have grown this winter.

It is so good to live in the mountains so close to such wonderful trout fisheries.

$75 spent on gas is a paltry price to pay for clearing the mechanism, although that amount of cash in Flint will buy 35 blowjobs and a carwash.

Those are the best looking trout I've seen in ages. :cool
frustrated. After a few "what the fucks?" "i suck"s and a break on shore I convinced her to get back to casting. I clearly remember this question/statement "so you actually think this is fun. These fish are fucked"
