UDRNFS - TR

Post by pxatim » Thu May 04, 2017 7:27 pm

[report]

May.. the greatest month of the year. The month you wait all year for and before you know it, it's over. Headed north by north east to the big boundary river to make sure the native's made it through the winter.

Image
Wheels up.

Image

Image

Image

Image
Made our presence known at the put in.

Image
On the water just in time for a late float back to camp. But first..

Image
Ran into Treebeard and watched him stick one.

Image
Ironman didn't take long to get reacquainted with the locals.

Image

Image

Image
No spinner fall made the return to camp well before dark leaving us feeling out of sorts.

Image
We'll stop for "just one" on the way back from running the shuttle.

Image
This isn't the flying J.. or is it..

Image

Image
Slow to rise the next morning we brushed the previous nights fog off... there was work to do today.

Image
250+ mouths to feed.. no sweat. We got this down to a science.

Image

Image

Image

Image
Somehow we maintained our sobriety... kind of.. not really. All that was left for the next three days was to float the river and pray for big bugs and happy fish. Ironman had business to attend to but we made sure he was with us in spirit.

Image
The river giving off her hand.

Image

Image

Image

Image
Just another invasive.. nothing to see here.

Image

Image
What we came for.. secret chub hole. Find your own.

Image

Image

Image
Back at camp dinner had already been under way since we arrived 72hrs ago.

Image

Image

Image
Casualties of war.

Image
With Ironman back on board for the finale the river opened up her legs.

Hard to leave when the fishing is good. Even despite tornado warnings. Rowing out the final few miles in the dark had us a bit on edge when you can see the impending front coming down the river... in the dark. One final dinner and calls were made to the left coast to check in with fellow drakians always planning the next time we will break bread and share a dram. We woke to both reservoirs spilling and flows that will sustain the river through the season.

I shit you not, Tranny. The Busch Light was $3.00/can. Reds $9.00/box. Shots were $5.00, and measured in a thimble.

Nice recap, Timmah. Thanks again for all your help, man.

Gotdang, this is why you need a Saffa on occasion, there would have been some interesting convo and negotiating. Similar to: "no, we are not paying these amounts, $5 seppo or I will burn this place down with you in it..."

Standing fukkin invite, brah. I'll get someone to GoPro that exchange. Be totally worth it, and we'd be thirsty.

I pulled Timmah out after the yokel he was shooting the pools with, accused him of wearing his sweatpants in the bar, while he was trying to negotiate for an antique coffee mug I spied. Decided the best way to get it, was standing up on the bar stool to 5 finger it. For the life of me, I didn't understand why the bar maid, after that plan was hatched (read: announced), she wouldn't retrieve it to drink a beer from.

Carol is a first rate asshole. There are 2 prices sheets. The transients fishers get it fukkin goot. I shudder at the thought of what's behind that glory hole.
