so the spring push came n went early this season never peaking over 6k although theyre still pushin a bit of water up north
didn't make it up for high flows
transitioned into summers happy idiot legal tenders gigs and thankfully doing it for myself or rather anyone willing to pay with stacks of dead potus papers and keeps me in the shadows of the economy
Image
mnt hippie gardens way behind and our irrigation water systems been fucked
Image
the old mans been havin a tough time
rolled n totaled his uninsured pop up trailer, third marriage ended, and mentally is starting to slip a bit.
so gittin him out for some dads day river time was in order
been unseasonably hot n windy
and the meager snowpacks melting fast
Image
so seeing tuesday was high pressure and calm i decided to head up score a good camp and check on the poopers in the res
sounded good till a coon decided he was gonna homestead the chimney
with profesional coon removal running tween 3- 4 hundy i needed to dyi this problem even if it cost me a perfect poopfish day
a few bottle rockets a trip or 2 to the hodepot chimney caps,landscaping the neighbors overhanging trees, and turd removal
i managed to safly roll into dj round 420
the furkids been doing well i failed at home schoolin and weve been going to classes been a year now hes grown and matured quite a bit
Image
they tell me he needs a purpose, shit im 53 and i wonder bout my purpose
all the good river camps had been taken so we headed down to browns park and scored a riverside camp
rolled out for a dawn patrol float and some row by streamer shootings
Image
my row n throw games was ,doh described it well and im still trying to figure out how i donated that 1st fly on the 1st cast to the river gods
had a few grabs and a troots or 2 on the line but none in the nets
bailed on the troots n flowing water and hit the gorge
a dry cold front was rolling through with enough wiind so that gittin em from shore was the call
surprisingly still a few late spawners and dork god had a blast chasing them fore i got him under control
got a few to eat
Image
Image

got back in the hogs n stuck one
Image
couple trips into the backing an under the boat and around the anchor rope escape manuver & some uncharacteristic top water shenanigans and about a 1/2 hour later i put him in the nets
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
hr puppystuffs slept through the whole thing
which for anyone who saw the last furkid in oc action at the fish on part is a kinda nice change
headed back to camp the old man made it up finally and we got up n out early and floated a b
he had a real hard time the night before im not gonna go into details but it wasnt pretty,and that shits down right depressing so despite the skunking and tough dry fly conditions the fact that he was much better that day
and a gourgie day on your home waters with a couple of yur best fishin buds is a blessing that shouldn't be taken lightly and that fuckin circle of life.. well a lil help at the start and towards the end to keep the diameter straight is part of it all
floated into camp and a bro with his crotchfruit showed up
floated a quick eve float down to cowboy
as the wife showed up and cooked sum grub
weather for sunday looked flash flood ominous so we bucked camp and headed up to the dam for a float
made sum friends at the put in
Image
we had a basset growin up so i'll always be a fan of those goofy gods
Image
me pops picked up a new raft so we put my spanser on the sticks for the fine maiden float
Image
and team fugitives hit the water
Image
once again catching was tough but the river miles go by easy
stopped n cooled off
Image
Image
let my dad take the sticks and row bridge n mil rapids
Image
and he did well
as did the rest of the crew
Image
yeah snoopy
Image
Image
sent the crew on the way and decided to stop by the res on the way home
well a few hours and poopers later
Image
Image
Image
the fact that my home eta was approaching midnight finally took me off the water and on the road
Image

yeah old man

luvs ya
and the fact that ive killed more brain cells than i outta and have a hard time keeping my circle of disorganized shizz well shaped gits harder
scares the shit outta me sometimes
cheers mother fuckers

smoke em while you gots em

Cool stuff - thanks for the inspiration!

Just a couple more shows to follow this tour and I plan on enjoying the flashbacks on the water.
