Got out of dodge early.
Stuck in traffic AGAIN
Swung by Woolly's watering hole in WS. He was kind enough to show me how to edit settings on the new Olympus, since the Pentax W90 is at the bottom of that shithhole Neuse River in Raleigh.
If I worked remotely from Krankies, I would be a very good
Arrived in Asheville a little after 7PM. Needed to wet a line.
Greeted by two Fed Game officers. They were in the process of busting some dickhead hunting illegally. Was taken aback at the remote locale they were staking out. Proves the lads do in fact get up in those hollers.
This creek is either devoid of fish or I flat out suck Yes, I suck
Off to Buffalo Brothers through a massive T-storm for some wings and watch the disaster that is the NY Jets
Drowned the sorrows...
Good times with Ben and Peter P
Up till 3am drinking...Saturday would be ugly. Forecast said that close to 3" fell in the past 24 hours. Goddamn...
No joy fishing chocolate milk shake
Ben: "fuck, I'm snagged up in the rhodo, fire one at that back eddy"
Me: "fuck, I'm snagged too, Rhodo shit"
We did avoid the skunk but decided enough was enough having to fish with 16oz pyramid sinkers and worms for a dink
A very expensive 3/4 tank of gas from my mate Lynn's country store. Headed south in search of gin clear water and more PBR
Pretty little river. Too bad she is overrun by dinker rainbows
Loaded up to drop off Ben. Got a text from Steelrain as I approached town, him and Chidester shit canned a trillion fish. I mobilized quickly and fished the lower section of the creek (private property) and enjoyed a little shitcanning of my own. Too bad the biggest fish was a whopper at 7"
I think it's gonna take me a while to get used to this fancy schmancy camera or I should not drink whilst photographing...
Salad for tubby
Headed to TX's to meet him and Steel
It was chillo's, so we changed the game with some Rum n ginger beer or was it Moonshine?
TX and Ben
He's got some awesome kids
Steel trying to get the eat.
I know why I was so heavily highholed yesterday. I smelt like a whisky distillery and those two poor bastards woulda ended up getting a hangover if I did my usual act.
TX:" we need a clean-up on Aisle 3" I certainly obliged for the slam. Fishing was piss poor again for the group, but hey, we spend more time soaking up the surroundings, talking shit and trying to stay on our feet, some less than others.
If only it was full and fresh...
Steel punching his ticket to rid the skunk, fitting after his slaying from Saturday.
Great weekend that.
Next stop? Franzenville August 21
