Fishing with Skully and the CC automatically makes you the rookie on two counts:
1. Steelfish
2. Photography
anyway, I forgot my camera so all I have are shitty cell phone pics of the Big Water;
but I took a few over the next couple days:

Shortly after the last pic, I got cocky and took a neck-deep swim in the creek.
We decided it was time to go, and I squished behind Skully and CC back to the car

Day three was colder'n a witches tit in a brass bra. But I'd come all this way, so I talked
the CC into heading for the river while Skully feigned the need to tidy up the casa. BrentE had a
half day off and decided to join us. Did I mention it was cold?

The fishings consisted of casting whatever flyline wasn't frozen in the guides and alternating
which hand to put in your pocket whilst swinging a dark fly through darker water. Brent ended
up having to leave for work - we heard a report later that he'd taken a swift dunking on the hike
back to his car. I pity him for that.

Friday evening a large gathering at Skully's Kastle demolished a large pot of
Kashmiri Chicken over rice. I thought i took pics, but I guess not. Trust me,
it was good. We retired to the Third Floor and listened to an eclectic mix of
music as various spirits flowed and lies followed.

As the final morning was still hungover from the cold night before, we took our
time getting on the water. Except for the CC - he elected to arise about the time
Fallen and his Militia turned in. He was going to stake out a claim on a good hole
and wait for us to show. By the time we arrived, he looked like this:

Fortunately the sun soon topped the bluff in places, our guides thawed out, and
we fished:

Some fish were caught, but I didn't see them. I hooked a fish...and also didn't see him.
I did manage to cross the creek numerous time without going under.

Another fine gathering with fine folk. Thanks to Skully and the WNY Gang
