We'll be back.
First of all. That is a beautiful fish. And an extremely beautiful picture of said fish.

With that said, I don't think I've ever seen a better canvas for RFA's art.

I figured he was still alive, but I didn’t know he was hiding out in Wyoming…….

The weather the past week was just nasty, so I spent the time in the garage working on the Slut’s trailer. I replaced the bearings, got new shocks, sanded it down, primed it up, and applied that spray-on bedliner to resist any new chipping. It turned out pretty good.

The Young Lass showed up in town as well, so I snuck out of work early on Friday to see what we could find.



We found out that the other shop had four boats on a little stretch of drink.

Funny thing is that they only get a certain number of days in the national forest……but I bet they haven’t started counting those yet.



We figured we should start lower and hit water the boats haven’t raped yet. It was a good call………

The boats caught up with us, so we went above the put-in. It was a good call……..

Saturday we decided to float. Having a young lass in your bed makes early starts near impossible. By the time we got to the put-in, the other shop already had FIVE boats on this day………



Some dickhead guide still had his raft sitting right at the put-in and proceeded to get rigged up instead of moving his raft so that others could put their boats on………it was stupid of him to piss me off so early on in the day.



The Young Lass stuck fish in front of every boat…….but she tagged about seven in front of the dickhead and his sports.

And then she rowed my boat so I could stick fish in front of them…….



Money!

We decided to take the Slut up to a lake where they have planted tiger trout. Game and Fish say that the new state record tiger should come from this lake in the next few years. I have never caught one myself so we wanted to check that off the list.



At breakfast we saw the sign for the day………

The past few weeks have really tried this man. The fishing has been shit, my boy did his best Agger's impression, my daughter missed her brother so much she decided to join him, and the only poopfish I've seen eat, the Stripnfly rep trout set.



The pond by the house is muddy and low......they are sending a shitton of water out to make room for the incoming runoff.....

I have been having fun with the other fly shop's Fakebook posts...........

(look, if you are going to be that fucking stupid and post that photo on the Internet, I will fuck with your ass)



Drove out to a new poopfish spot only to find them in full spawn mode.......

Went and scouted a bit more.......should be good when the water is up.

The next day we took the new boat out in search of trout..........

I went the canyon to check on the flows at 5k...........and ended up taking a little walk.

Hagen sent me a text that cheered me up.........

The old boss was in the shop on Saturday so I took the rep out to the lake to see if he could catch his first tiger.



I thought of my girlfriend.........

Fishing sucked, but he got his tiger. We got a laker, splake, and this cutt......

The next morning we figured we should go for poopfish again. There is this little town on the way that serves a breakfast pizza and has a Bloody Mary bar on Sunday mornings-we figured we would give it a shot.

Potatoes, onions, bacon, eggs, and japs...........yum.



The poopfish were in, but the water was dirty......

so we went around the shallow water looking for backs and tails.........

It sucked, so we went back to a trout lake........

Yesterday, I received something in the mail from a dude you all ran off...........it was missing a thumb ring.

Fucking life sucks sometimes, but you have to remember that that shit is only temporary. Family, friends, and fish will always help you through. Even if it is just the attempt at a fish...........know that things will improve.
