Years ago I interviewed for a position at the fly shop that town. The job came with the upstairs apartment and a warning.

Apparently, on his first night in town the previous manager had gone out to the bars and come home with a black eye or couple. Cowtown folks found him undesirable, I guess. He didn't last long.

I think I'd fit right in. I mean, I've got a cowboy hat and everything.

Who said I had all my fingers?


I don't think I could live in that town full time.....we are looking into buying a house there, though - $65K gets you a 3 bedroom with a fenced in yard within walking distance to the Stockman. It would make for a great fishing/hunting residence.

Went out to dinner, although not here...pretty rough bar, from the looks of it, no place for a little kid. I went in solo, but they only took cash, so I left.
The people in that bar are some of the nicest on the planet. I spent a year up in that valley punching cows. They'd give you or your kids the shirt off their back.
Shit load of bars with that moniker in that state. I was thinking it was the one my wife and daughters ate New York strips and drank quality beers in before heading out on a river float. But now I am not so sure. So many bars, so little time.

Nice thread RFA but you need more B&W pics.

Look what I just discovered in my driveway, half buried in the dirt.

I left all of my fishing shit in my truck on the front seat when I got home from this trip on Monday. The wife borrowed it, and threw everything in the camper because she had kids to pick up. These obviously fell out, and she either stepped on them or ran them over. Nice.....Maui Jim's

Ressurecting this thread, although the original Stabbin Cabin was sold last summer. We now a have a camper on one of America's finest trout streams, albeit not as cool as the Shasta. The boat is also part of this new version of the Encyclopedia, and will be part of updates moving forward.

The kid is 13, and has some real talent with the fly fishing thing. I'm not just saying it as a Dad, he kills it, the wife nicknamed him the fish whisperer. You're gonna be reading about him in 10 years. He caught his first fish at age 4, so he's already got 9 years in the game. I rowed his ass around for 2 days straight, so I didn't fish more than 20 minutes combined last week....that will change.
