Head down coast

Post by southernstrain » Wed Mar 11, 2015 9:17 pm

[report]The phone rings, its my buddy. He forgot his fly box back at his house. About a 30 minute drive each way with traffic this time of year, damn seasonal residents. They keep the businesses here afloat but about this time of year we would all rather be out of work and fishing without all the terrible drivers and tippers. So we'll be an hour behind which in the scheme of things won't matter. We have 3 and half days to be lost down the coast with nothing to do but fish, eat good food and enjoy some damn peace and quiet.



Coulda used that extra hour of light earlier

The whole thing was planned around one goal, which isn't always attainable. Maybe the tides not right, or lacking visibility, sometimes you just aren't holding your mouth right. So you pass the time pursuing other things of interest, waiting and always looking




There's a saying " Luck is where preparation meets opportunity"


The funny thing is, opportunity doesn't always stick around long so when its here you go all in and jump 3 fish in 15 minutes. They don't all stick but one does and the next thing I know I'm saying farewell to a goal that's eluded me for a long time.




My buddy jumped 2 of the 3 fish in the flurry. His first two he's ever hooked. Both were probably closer to 200lbs than 100. He's properly fucked and I know exactly where his mind is right now
