Fall time is here (finally)

Post by tailchaser » Wed Nov 01, 2017 5:34 pm

Love this time of year. Reds are hungry and water looks great.

First things first. Load everything up the night before. I haven't been on the water in a little while almost forgot what all to bring. Did a quick check list.

  • Beer
    Gas
    A bottle of water
    Crackers and Vienna sausage
    flies with shitty rusted hooks because I like to see how many fish I can catch on one fly
    dry rotted leaders and cracked fly line
    wool socks
    crocs
    towel
    wet wipes
    Beer
    Patagonia and Simms gear only
    Over price fly rods
    Way over priced reel that looks cool as shit but I really don't even need one.
    buff
    wade boots
    extra over priced rod and real because I'm a high sticker. (happens when you're short, fuck off)
    canoe
    anchor that I never use
    paddle/pushpole
    registration up to date? close enough
    etc. etc. etc..

All I wanna do is go catch a fish... this is a lot of fricken work. son of a...
loaded all up the night before... sure makes it easier. Get coffee and go. Maximize sleep time for better fishing performance (not really) not to mention lack of sleep because of the never ending frinken astros game.

Dinners gonna be good

Fished all morning and caught a bunch of fish. A few biggens too. Really felt good to be on the water especially with the weather being so good and water being so peaceful. Back to the house and eating fresh fish taco by 1 and spending the rest of the evening with the family before heading back to the grind.

Lately I haven't had much time to fish with life an all. I come here and look at all the fishing reports and enjoy the shit out of them. I know my reports suk compared to y'alls but I figure I could at least contribute back and quit being lazy with the reports.

I'd love to catch a fish from a canoe again. Doing it in the salt would be extra crazy cool.
