Took my co-worker; fuckdave out on a recent trip. I call him fuckdave because he lives near the river just north of town and likes to send me pictures of all the after work mayfly hatches he stumbles into. I think to myself as any ordinary person would under said circumstances: “fuck Dave”.
Fuckdave started fly fishin 1.5 years ago. He would ask questions here and there but has essentially taught himself everything. He somehow hop scotched past the snag steelhead and salmon phase every new FF goes through in MI and for whatever reason went right to swinging soft hackles and fishin dries from April to October. I also like fuckdave because he’s the only one at work that I can say the inappropriates too and still laugh. I figured it was finally time to take him out on the shoe for more than just a day trip.
Fuckdave caught one trout in 3 days, which was double the size of his previously largest trout.
