Good shit.
I'm gonna buy that musky DVD now.
Been thinking about it.
Where's fucking T.X.?
Dude, gimme a holler when it's time, I miss that place.
When I see massive fucking musko's I think of that whoring bitch that ate your fly.
I haven't even checked in here in months...I haven't fished since I moved that big girl about two weeks after we fished together and I landed that 52". The rivers have been fucked, start to come down and then we get blasted again. I've lost about 3 feet of riverbank at my place and some deep scouring in the field down there as well.
Just trying to keep my head above water and stay on top of things. Back filling,seeding, then another flood, lose it all and start over.
I can actually see the bottom of the river now, I think that's about the third time this summer.
It seems like we're getting about 3" of rain every other day. That little trickle that's a foot and a half wide before you drive up my mountain was over a hundred yards wide a couple of weeks ago...and a couple of weeks before that as well.
I've been focused on getting the house addition finished.
I might have to suck it up and make the long haul w/ Knox.
I need a break (the mowing and weed eating has been kicking my ass this year).

Nope, but I have a 9.9....that's not for sale.
Check CL EVERY day, you'll find one and that boat will fly, it will take a 15hp and run near 30.
Check the Custom Gheenoe classified site as well.
Hope the family is well, haven't seen you in quite a while.

It would seem weird going to Canukistan and flying into a lake I've never fished when there is so much productive water this side of the border. Client keeps trying to get us up there though.

Think of Rowan as you would Pebble Beach if you were a golfer.

I don't know too many duffers who'd turn down a turn to beat it around that cow pasture;)

It's A+ game water though Adams. You might want to send me and yer wife...

Went with V Wake & Chidester to the local river a couple weeks back. We got there early, and while they were running the shuttle I thought I would try my luck in the big eddy at the put-in. I rowed up about a hundred yards & began to cast...my wrist hurt already as I tried out flies that are just too big to throw on a 10-weight, but I wasn't really looking forward to trying some of them on a 12-weight either...I tried a couple water-pushers, no luck...tried a big-ass Fluke Fly, no love...in about 10 minutes I realized that the water was already dropping; we had rain the previous couple days and the water was somewhat colored but it also looked like it was clearing a little...or was that my imagination?

I had about a hundred crazy-looking flies that I had never tried, from big Airheads to jointed Wiggle Minnows, to 10-inch string leeches tied on furled 80-pound to Change-Gamers (yeah the Game's been Changing for a long, long time...) to noise-makers...hey a NOISE MAKER! This might work well in the stained water. I put on the original gold Chatterbait fly that I posted on here a couple years ago. I knew that this one wiggled & made noise, as my son had helped me make an underwater video of the fly in action in the pool years ago (see Chatterbait Fly post). For some reason I had not tweaked this fly much or tied any more of them that I could find, so I put on the gold prototype.

I was immediately rewarded on the 2nd cast with an eat right by the boat that was just an epic, aggressive eat!! She made a big jump and I saw that she was hooked on the rear-hook...note to self, make more of this fly...then she bulldogged me down deep, and I realized that she wasn't a dink...then she jumped 3 more times before I got out TX's lucky net & got her!! Just then I heard a repeated blast of the horn, as V Wake & Chidester are crossing the bridge above me...they're gonna be jealous!

Well I got her! I was pretty stoked, as we hadn't even left the put-in...I yelled out for some help taking photos; I snapped a quick one on my phone but it was ugly...I'll post it anyway though. V Wake made an underwater release video that I'm waiting on, will post when it comes online.
