(stick around for the Saint of Circumstance, cause here's where the rainbow ends...
My Great Rust Tour started a week early.
GS was gracious enough to host me and be my fishing partner (a.k.a. my guide) and professional photographer as well as new friend (in the real people world). Most all these photos were shot by him. PBR fell in the river at the bake and toasted his phone so I gave him my other iPhone to take home, it has most of my pics. These are way better though.
The NY crew are fucking awesome guys.
I was given the golden ticket on this tour.
Me and Glista, that's my camo hat, the lakers are real spooky.
He hated me so much he bit me in the fuck
This one was fatter than PBR
GS knows how to catch the big ones
Ginny only shoots cover shots.
He can tell a steelhead to jump and it will jump.
Because he said so.
I tried the local hot spot but the water was fucked. Still I swung through.
Glista and Pyscho Timmy insisted Wylie and I experience the local culture - roller derby.
It fucking rules guys. Support your local.
So with the local water fucked we headed up to the Salmon with a killer buddy of GS's.
I experienced pinners for the first time.
You guys were right.
I lucked into this fun time
Doin the tarpon walk
It's a chenille butt dickheads, so what.
So now I've been steelheading twice, in BC and the Great Lakes and here's what I've come to say about it,
they're both fucking AWESOME.
Again, GS just never gets the right moments. Even made me look like I knew what the fuck I was doing...
Then PBR came up and we were instantly brothers. Like we'd known each other our whole lives. He made me laugh till tears many, many times. GS had to work that day so we fished the big deep river again but skunked. The lakers were rolling everywhere, on our lines, right after the fly hit the water, one even tried to beach itself for us but we still skunked.
Said good byes to GS and his awesome wife but not before he issued us tying supplies:
Thanks Nick, you're a wizard and a fucking great dude. I can't thank you and the rest of your team for all that fun. I had the best time.
Especially changing that tire.
Sorry for all the mug shots but not that sorry.
On to the Rust Bake....[/report]

well Aggers you were a fine guest and it was a good time despite it looking pretty bleak to start. for you to get a fish from rivers on each end of LO was a pretty tough task. both of those rivers are not known for their generosity as i made clear with my results. you're a fishy little bastid, though i'll split credit with Root ;). i hope you found our little neck of the woods to be satisfactory.
also glad that SC was able to drive you back to town sunday so you could actually see some of the city. i'm a suburban guy and never venture that way so good you got the whole scene in. thanks for the help too Chris.
i haven't had people i just met stay at my place since the Dead show days. you Wylie and Josh made the whole week a lot more fun. Cheech, Chong and Lucy miss you guys already and you're welcome back any time.
you forgot the best pic. you with your first Laker. for Shawn
I miss Lucy, she was my lil girl.
Tell Suz Wendy loved the yarn and is sending her a box.
You guys made me feel so welcome and were beyond kind to me, thank you.
Treebeard yeah, I voted for Gandalf the Grey but lost.
Keep doing good work.
Miss ya pal.
