Rest in peace, big man.
This one's for Pete.
I have a had a lot going on in my life lately and with the heat index of 103 deg seppo, I needed a cool shady creek to keep my mind and body from melting.
This creek was one of Pete's favorites. He wrote about it quite a few times as a magazine article writer, but got upset whenever someone hotspotted it on the local board. I chuckled with the irony but truthfully, he was right. In the land of dark muddy bayous, a creek with "clear" water and sandy bottom is a rarity.
You know it's a good spot when you can find both Jesus and Spiderman have been there previously.
Per Pete's many suggestions, poppers were the main fly of the day.
I came for the spotted bass, but unfortunately they did not participate. Maybe I'm fishing the wrong areas. Maybe I can't fish for shit. Maybe I smell. Or maybe it was just that I got high holed by one of the locals.
However, I did find various other sunfishes which were willing to participate.
I may not have found the target fish I was looking for, but I walked away with sand in my shoes and a refreshed mind.
Thanks Pete. I'll catch one of those spots one day.
Nicely written, friend.
