Decided to go back for a little night action. This time it was during the full moon, we got to the creek before sunset.


Image


Image


We sat at the truck and enjoyed some beverages while waiting for it to get a little darker. Finally Time to head down to the water and hopefully have some fun.


Image


Image


We didn't see very many rodents on the way down. The usual loud splashes on the water were absent as well. Fishing was slow but I finally got the skunk off.


Image


and the release

Image


Fished for a couple hours more with no luck so it was decided to head back to the truck around 12:35 for some snacks and more beverages. I attempted a long exposure shot without the help of a tripod. I attempted to hold the camera still on the fence but the shots still came out a little blurry, this was the best of them.


Image


We went back down to the water and fished for about two more hours with nothing to show for it. At that point we decided to call it and headed back to town.

Image
National TU bailed on the 5th annual one fly comp so the local vernal chapter threw togather a 1/2 assed version
musta been sum comunication breakdown cause word i got was i could row.
well it seems they decided to just hire guides this year and perhaps they thought gettin paid would ruin my volunteer experience.
and no one could take the time to tell me of their decision.
b4 the 4 hours i and my bro spent settin up the tents woulda been a good time
While disapointed w/ the decision the fact that no one had the balls to come tell me of your decision face to face like men and ya sent my dad down to tell me fuckin infuriates me to a point that i'm done with trout unlimited.
far be it for me to take work from a needy guide but i'm still emailing to find out when they made this decision and what exemption the one nonprofessional voli guide who got to row used sure as hell wasn't the volied all the previous events and was high boat/top guide last
that was sposed to be mine
I enjoyed doing voli work for good causes but i'd have a hard time workin for monetary gains for people who operate in a chix a bull shit manner
so not workin for frees is easy
ya that rant belongs in the bitchin room but i wouldn't leave my damn best friend, furkid and longtime fishin partner home, and drive to a river that has almost as many pretentious inflated egoed assholes per mile as fish to set up tents while the sponsoring chapter slept in, tied flies, whatever
fuck them and the lodge.
round noon my bro n i hit the river
my dad stuck a few

Image
fri morn i did what any bum whose been told hes not good enough would do :bow
self medicated and hit the water to feed the poopfish addiction cause ive come to the conclusion that carp are way more challenging and entertaining to fish for than troots
Image

This could've flown solo. I liked it all. It's easier to read your stuff after a couple tokes but I can still get the drift.

I Like to think Bomar would be pissed that they didn't let me row.
not feeding my bro who spent the morning setting up your tents dinner was a sweet touch
If your event is dependent on the penny ante, nickle & dime food costs of pulled pork sloppy joes ,bean soup and waterlogged sysco corn cobs & coleslaw
your grasp of the big picture is probably lacking a bit
Good thing they went cheap cause the pissed off professional guide flingin a plate at the meal ticket dinner nazi wouda left a mark had ya not gone paper plates
honestly as rewarding as the voli work was attending my 1st bake trumped it all and is something i hope to be able to do again
