The Desert trouts V2 - TR

Post by Transylwader » Wed Apr 18, 2018 11:46 am

Earlier this year, a fellow Drakian had extended an invite to join him, his brother and several of their mates for a group trip to a fabled part of the western desert of North America. I was in the throngs of prepping for a trip to Florida, dealing with the recent retirement of my boss of 12 years and of course training in TX. Would I get to squeeze this trip in? You bet your ass I did. Anytime someone mentions desert trout, my inner 12 year old bounces off the walls like a kid just given a few sips of Mello Yello.
So after I got back from Flow-riday, I booked my ticket and let the kind gentleman know I would be flying out April 12 but needed to be back on the 17th. Worked like a charm. The night before, I was trying to figure how the fuck I was going to fit a tent, fart sack, waders, rods, gummy bears and a bunch of warm gear into a 24"x 36" suit case. I contacted the lad and requested he load up his tent and a cot which he initially offered, I would bring my own fartsack, kein problem. Worked well.

Managed to drill through Thursday unscathed, get to RDU and have some time to spare to guzzle down a few beers and grub at 42nd Street Oyster Bar.

That raat thaar is crab mac n cheese and I suspect that was the reason I had thundering anus all the way to fukkin Salt Lake Shitty. My belated apologies to the fit Delta air hostess :Roll Eyes
Image
That's OK, a longtime friend and I met in Ewe-Tah for a beer while I had a layover. This joint had some good shit on draft, so drank we did and the schitz were replaced by a buzz. I made it to San Fran airport to complete the second leg of the trip.

More to follow as I pull the good pics off my DSLR :cool

Tease.
Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need-a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.
-Jerome K. Jerome, 1889

"in a thong prepping for a trip to Florida"? Weird.

So into the darkness we chase...

Image
Jose is rather intrepid. Buckled down his rocking chair for extra comfort. It's always good to have a throne to enjoy the sights and surroundings.
I felt like absolute dogshit and never got a lick of sleep for 40 hours straight. It's all good, the trip was not work related so fukk the corporate coprolites, I was on TW time.
Image
Made it over Donner Pass and down into Boomtown. Grabbed some much at the casino and saw some interesting stuffs.
Image
Made it over to big blue to watch the sun rise
Image
This place is some kind of magic. Doesn't help if you google or youtube it, the conspiracy theorists come up with all kinds of whacky stuffs. So there your mind conjures up UFO's, little grey beings with fly eyes and of course the dipshits in black suits with ear pieces. I digress...
Image
Image
Image
Image
So the set-up is pretty self explanatory. There's a weed line between the shore and the drop off, Lahontans don't like the sludge, so place your ladder beyond the tripe and start putting out casts. I'd compare it to surf donkey fishing, except no bull sharks nor topless chicks, not that I wanted to see a nekkid squaw wimmin. You can do it two ways, sight fish the fuckers with a small streamer and a popcorn something or other and strip it to make the lahonky tonks go ape, or be a ghey waffle and chuck a bobber out with a pune nymph below (which of course, your royal anus said eff that) :gun

How's about a spot of fishin' mate?

Cornholio pulled rank that afternoon and joined the group.
Image
I donned ze ghey buff and finger protector thingies because the lake fights back.

Headed north to find some solitude from the crowds...

Bucket list fish achieved

Even managed to catch one of the rarest furshes on earth, the Cuiui. Cute lil bugger who put up a decent fight.
Image
Said hi to my desert relative.
Image
Headed back to camp to help prep supper.
Image
Image
Neil gave me shit for drankin Pabst, I gave him shit for mixing Balvennie with 7up. At least use sprite fer fukk sake.

Image
Two timers...
and more to follow... :cool
