So Maybe Carps are Better than Brooks - TR

Post by BaileyBoy » Sat May 26, 2012 5:19 pm

I know I'll catch hell for the music selection, but it seems like an appropriate song considering...


Many miles were put on the truck this week, and I got to see some beautiful country and fish a bit. Before we get started, though, let me be the first to welcome you to the middle:
Image

Image

I forgot where I read this, but someone once said, "Signs in the West that are handwritten and contain misspellings are particularly menacing..." I couldn't agree more.
Image

and inside...
Image

Image

Image

I spent far too much time in the bar poking around, and the owners were starting to get nervous of me snapping photographs. So I headed out to the first creek and promptly got booted (before I even started) for trespassing. Apparently the ex CEO of Coca Cola owns the property / access to the river - and he turned me away first hand. I tried to reason with him to let me fish, and he said, "Nope." I then asked him if "New Coke" from the 1980's was his brainchild as he rode off in his ATV. He didn't appreciate my humor...

So onto creek #2
Image

Caught a bunch of awesome little browns.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The next day I fished here and lost a 20" fish to the current. I freaking blew it. It was a miserable but fantastic hour of sleet and snow...


On the wayhome I drove by here...
Image

...and stopped there for a few minutes to watch some risers.
Image

And finally back home to the big city.
Image

Now that's a fish...

Wait a minute. We've got to back the fuck up here.

I was really into this TR. Great images, lots of miles covered, cool creeks, nice fish.

Then I got to the last pic. Yes, it's a big fucking carp. Yes, we would all bang your wife. But I've seen that pic before. I've seen it on the most miserable fishing forum that I know of. A cesspool of ignorance and misinformation.

You, BaileyBoy, are CoTroutSlayer from Fishexplorer. I'm sorry buddy, you lose major points for that.

Otherwise, killer TR.

Crap. I was had then.

This pic was Emailed to me last week by a work acquaintance who told me this gal he knows caught the fish earlier this month. Thought it was worth posting.

I stand corrected.

Wait, you posted an emailed carp pic from "destination unknown" in your trip report and played it off like it was your fish?

So Mr. Boy, are you saying that you are not the offending mouthbreather from the other forum? Either way, a breach of etiquette has occurred.

Nice try with the editing, but remember, the internets are always watching.
Here is the photo in question:

Now listen, BB. I know you're a good dude, mostly because Franzy Pansy didn't talk any shit on you when I saw him last week. But we both know you deserved to be called out on this one.
Come on up and fish some time.

No I'm not the guy from the other forum - nor did I claim the fish or pic was mine. I just thought it was a fantastic shot from a friend. Guess I won't post that stuff anymore...

I'll be up your way the 2nd week of June - I'm already looking forward to some west slope stuff. I'll give you a shout.

Here's a fish that I caught... my buddy was holding it for me because I threw my back out during the fight.

Bullshit. :bullshit

You posted this pic in your TR.

Just because you didn't "claim" it was yours, doesn't get you off the hook.

Those aren't even the same species of fish. What the hell is wrong with this thread? WOW.

I like the fish with the teeth more better.
Can you edit your post to add that fish pic?
That would be beyond cool.
