got the chance to row the tu tarded one fly tournament again

trip started with a buzz kill

either my add laden stoner ass left or more likely some asswhipe walked outta my garage with a new dry bag loaded with sleeping bags and my bibler bivvy which really stings as that fuckers $$$ when space is tight

which is still my fault for leaving the door open and not listening to the better 1/2

headed out prefished a bit with my pops and continue puppy stuff training

We pulled it off again. Family float/fishing trip with a good balance of both. For me, even though I wasn't there to witness it, the moment that epitomizes the trip was when Ginseng got a nice fish on a dry from the raft with the bimini up.

I feel like we're starting to get this trip dialed in.

So yeah, I bought a handful of pink fat alberts from the shop and the guy straight up lady at me. Then I watched a bunch of fish eat them. He seemed like a good dude, but fuck him, in a nice way.

And fucking Ginseng was there! Didn't see that coming. I dig that we can throw this all together with just a few texts and emails.

Thanks for being part of my mom's birthday. It was a time to remember.
