[report]this one is a little different for me. I've never really been into chasing trout too much. it's not that I don't like trout. it's just I'm not very good at catching them. theonetrout came over Saturday after I got off work and we were off for 2 days of fishing. the plan for both days could not have been any different. day one trout on a small stream and day 2 muskie on a big river. so we were off.

and we made camp right before dark

and camp things were done

next morning was magical.

and these little creatures were worth the price of admition.

and when they say trout live in beautiful places its the truth.

day 2 looked a lot like this with 0 fish, but it was a hell of a time and really gave the new boat a good workout

How in gods green earth do I not have one of these fucking koozies?

Been enjoying following your getting outness. My boy was not into it. He was and is still too action packed for meandering around a river. My daughter would likely be a good sport, but I live in a jerk infested yuppie shithole now, so options are limited.

It's your light saber.

I got a quick hall pass for Monday morning because the wife and her sister were going to lunch. sister in law's boy friend fly fishes so plans were made. the morning started off kinda slow but we got a random hit here and there. this little guy was the first fish to hand.
