Pre-Franzen Trip Round 2 - TR

Post by Transylwader » Tue Aug 14, 2012 9:58 am

[report]
Got out of dodge early.
Image
Stuck in traffic AGAIN :gun
Image
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.
Image
If I worked remotely from Krankies, I would be a very good thinker drinker...
Image
Arrived in Asheville a little after 7PM. Needed to wet a line.
Image
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.
Image
This creek is either devoid of fish or I flat out suck Yes, I suck :bomb
Image
Off to Buffalo Brothers through a massive T-storm for some wings and watch the disaster that is the NY Jets :wink
Image
Drowned the sorrows...
Image
Good times with Ben and Peter P
Image
Up till 3am drinking...Saturday would be ugly. Forecast said that close to 3" fell in the past 24 hours. Goddamn...
Image
Image
Image
Image
No joy fishing chocolate milk shake
Image
Image
Image
Ben: "fuck, I'm snagged up in the rhodo, fire one at that back eddy"
Me: "fuck, I'm snagged too, Rhodo shit"
Image
We did avoid the skunk but decided enough was enough having to fish with 16oz pyramid sinkers and worms for a dink
Image
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
Image
Image
Image
Image
Pretty little river. Too bad she is overrun by dinker rainbows
Image
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"

Image
Image
I think it's gonna take me a while to get used to this fancy schmancy camera or I should not drink whilst photographing...
Image
Salad for tubby
Image
Headed to TX's to meet him and Steel
Image
Image
It was chillo's, so we changed the game with some Rum n ginger beer or was it Moonshine?
Image
Suffering...
Image
TX and Ben
Image
He's got some awesome kids
Image
Steel trying to get the eat.
Image
Image
Image
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.
Image
If only it was full and fresh...
Image
Image
Steel punching his ticket to rid the skunk, fitting after his slaying from Saturday.
Great weekend that.
Image
Next stop? Franzenville August 21
Ha lawd :cool[/report]

Looks like fun. I like the new picture taker. Those were some great macros for a point and shoot. I need to upgrade soon. :cool

the ginger beer and rum put a hurting on me, but trying to fish behind you was worse. reminded me of Monday morning PT formation in Korea
the only thing I've learned from reading this entire thread is that the hokey pokey isn't really what it's all about.

I hope you catch a ride with socks and pay me a visit. Although your photos are nice, those dinks are getting old.
