A mag and his Fishsniffin Pooch Road Trip to Pursue the Fishes With E-nonomoose Mags
Tryin a skier666 fine tr format on this one
The tr theme
some one I've been stoked to meet for a while and a solid mag Schwerty
Honerary mag and fish stud/guide and Montucky Films producer KS
Irrie rasta fishsniffin road trip copilot Kessler D Doggie Dawg
and the irrie goofball OP SFB behind the lens, oars and huge tailing loop fuckcasts
and spacecereal guest appearence by Billy Aids Virus's daughter Hanna Barberra MTucky
Well it all starts with an e-ideaer and a lets hook up and fish thread. Props to the schwerty brah for gitin er rollin again.
I wanted so bad to summit last fall but a pos trailer kept me from goin.
The Mrs. gave us a new sweet galvie trailer from the awesome Hyde Bros and the 8 yo Tupperware Mothership shameless spam for my bro is always down for whatever I throw at her.
I suck at packing but took a few days and the pooch freakin out cause he knows the river gear comin out means good times ahoy
not quite as dialed as this fishbum rig
but he's a brofessional
Well of course the alpine start got delayed, bros stoopin by, lost key trauma and the dead battery ment I'd be gettin goat183 in Victor to late to fish.
Ah the road trip miles cruise by as John Butler Trio and Rl bside rock me out
Stopped in Ft Hall for discount top and fkna a ice cold glass bottle of coke no gamblin though
Passin the miles callin mags I haven't spoke to in a while good to stay in touch
Stopped in @ hyde to transfer a spare in case it needed to be checked and deal with my new short boat cover issue.
Stopped here for a few dog shot and break of whiz and safety
I managed to go by Tye1on and goatjongs hood and into Victor, was gonna stop and see Ride It but he's busy postin important poliasshat shit and beatin off to tacos with shania no talent Twains picture on them.
Grabbed goatbrah met Magic and Deek and headed towards Last Chance and the riverside CG that LB had kindly reserved.
We got in late and the friendly camp hosts let us slide on the nights $28sumthin double site charge, set camp and observred an awesome moon rise w/ dinner.

G183 and I awoke to a drizzly morn headed down to the Trout Hunter then up to Henry's lake.
As it would be a hell of a lot easier to do a flyfishin primer on still water and if it poured we could just row in for a break.
Well we rowed over to the outlet and a good 15 other boats and sure enough g183 ties into a nive cutty for his 1st trout on the fly
he was throwin a brown sculpin matukaesqe conehead on an intermidiate sink tip, which proved to be the ticket all 3 trips to the lake.
I couldn't get the strip set going and the fullsink didn't produce the strikes and I skunked out that trip
G183 got a nice brookie or two
and of course dork dog got his fish sniff on
Well actually I caught this
appears come onboard processing removed the filets
So it had rained or drizzled most of the time after we cleaned a couple fish we stoppped by here to warm up and grab some hot chow here
Always down to float somethin new we launched @ Osborne to float into camp
There was a guideboat ahead of us and was damn sure we were once again be gettin wet as this was behind and comin in fast
Ahead was shapin into a stunning sunset and W kept castin to persnickity selictive bitch ranch fish
The sunset just kept getting better and i'm now spinnin circles trying to figure out the new dslr
and the seemingly endless cool shit
and the complexities of the black and white photo slut athelete fish sniffer
I tied a few on shook hands with one or two, crackered off a couple and kept snappin pics
and well yeah some product placement pimpin shots
and geese and....
Next thing we know the other boats gone it's gettin dark and rainin again
g183 gave me a break or two and I even got to call the wife goin past the most eggsalad rich folks home.
The water got faster and we started diggin for flashlights most of which were corroaded or nonfunctioning.
We managed to get one working and beached one short rapid away from the riverside takeout, and walk into camp soaked hopin for maggot assistance.
There was a car in camp but it was the regional campground fs manager and he's a bit miffed
Seems in their haste to pursue the fishes a watermelon Ketel 1 vodka and action packers containing freeze dried food were left out for Yogi and Boo Boo.
The sherrifs on the way and all our shit needs to be locked in the shitter.
The do0dge is still back at osborne the boat is damn near ful;l of water and there is a +200lb cooler that needs to get out.
Just as Johnny Law pulls up so do the mags it all gets worked out a shuttle done dinner cooked and cocktails till midnight.

well after a post midnight drunk a laughin my ass of at lmw newzealand 18' leader impersinations we awoke and decided a warm to ashton with a bread fish stop was in order.
Stopped here ffor shuttles and to enjoy an Afton ID institution
killer shop bout every inch of space covered
Soon enough we were bread feedin hogzillas in the no fishin pet hog hole
My zoom didn't cut it and the go pro baggette was planned but not exucuted this trip
fun watchin hogs chow
time to git the float on
needs me one of them paddle faster stickers
catchin was tough that day, but we pursued and did a lot of switchin round
stoked lexib rowed me a bit and did I mention his strong stick skills
I couldn't get them to eat any sex dungeons, stoner sculpins, or meat whistles not even a follow LB needed to pull ashore a few times to save the streamer and we almost lost the anchor.
pulled over to ply the waters from shore
dork dog pursued his water toy as there wern't a lot of fish to sniff
I was leery of brinin the furkid as he gets a bit excited and how much those funny sticks that throw flies cost has no meanin to him but for the most part he was a rockstar and did a lot of watchin
a few were hooked
20 sum incher release
noobs rowed rubbers
I kicked back and quit donatin nymphs
lmw manned the sticks and kessler recharged for dinners
another sweet westren river sunset was observed
Ithink the serious partakng of alcohol at least 4 me started then and dim reculections of a damn fine pasta veggie sausage smart puff shots brown water dinner was consumed and
campsite fire was lit
burn HANNA BANNNA BURN
things gut fuzziezez
my torn rotator cuff hurt so i ate a perc
or two and it got fuzziers
important shizz was discussed and i guess in NZ you can roll with a 17' leader if you smear croc shit on your face and gear and throw 22's
shots and snoozages in my warm bag being poached by sleepy dork dog
no bear activity noted but camps properly secured

reserved 4 Day3
Awoke to a bit of frost on the pumk err watermelons
and frosty flies
Sunday mornins worship occoured @ the trouthunter served by a cute little aussie hottie who followed her boy toy guide to the land of oppurtunity milk honey and automated jager dispensers
AMERICA FUCK YEAHS
SFB flailed on the hottie shot but swears there is one somewhere
The mornins pursuit of the fishes took the crew to Henry's lake
After pretty much skunkin out the 1st 2 days I gots my mojos back and the strip set workin
get yo fish sniff ons
there were a lot of boats on the water and bent rods o plenty.
Fun watchin an older fishin gal light em up and everytime we looked over she was tightlined and smilin puttin another in the net
just more time spent not havin the time deducted from the masterclock
bout nooners or so we pulled off the lake to go scope out here
or the sacred ground of the rr ranch
I had a preminition the night before of dork dog gettin lose and trying to help some oldschool bamboos rod oldtimer land his +20" he spent 6 hours and 42 flypatterns to hook
and broke his rod sylvester Nemes rolled for him.
So I wasn't goin ranchin
Took a while to find where to easily launch
and it wouldn't been easy without the help of these two studs thanx again
What a cool float
I guess it's a cluster fuck of rubber tubies doobies in the summer but irrie furkid and I were the only ones floatin that afternoon
pretty shallow so the get out and push off vegitation mats occoured a bit
worked the product pimpin spancered brand ambassadog thing a bit more
He don't get to ride up front JW Powell style much so he dug it
Still trying to functionally operate the dslr this was a great float for that, the boat is such a cool shooting platform as a simple oar stroke changes your light w/ little effort.
stopped at a few deeper holes to exercise mr. wiggly dinks
could see decent kokes w/ their green headed red bodies swimin upstream to spawn but pretty lock jawed
gots some marginal underwater goes proes of em
as I was switchin lines these two stopped by for a sip at the local waterin hole
more product pimpins, I got a shitload of simms gear needin warrunty hope a few of these shots help my cause.
Started to get late so began rowin out when came across Mr. Swamp Donkey
DORK DOG SAW HIM GROWL SOFTLY AND HEADED FOR THE SHELTER OF THE BACK OF THE BOAT WHILE i fucked up on the wrong camera setting
today I managed to put al the food away but spaced the cell phone so I knew it was gettin late and the mags would wonder wtf I was doin
darkness on the edge of town to quote the boss man
no attacking swamp donkeys ment nappy time
the vegimats got thick and gettin out of the boat to push off was rapidly increasing
Finally could se the lights of Macks Inn and the road
did the oneman headlamp pull off in the dark again and returned to camp another fine maggot meal tasty green herbs and brown water
and well some more hannahs not in montanna Billy AIDS Virous offspring sacrifices and maggot lutz
The story of Ape_Natural rescuin Singles camera gear on crutches from a scammer and what it means to be a maggot was pondered
A few dibsy downers eased my pain and sometime after midnight I slept dreaming of getting the mrs.to float big springs to Macks someday cause that's the stuff she really digs about floatin/rowin

day 4...... 20 spot
So we broke camp said goodbye to the friendly riverside camp hosts and headed N to Montucky.
After some fire road driving we ended up below hebie Jeebie lake on the S fork of the Madison.
by this juncture I was so far over the road trip budget i wasn't gonna throw down for a MT licencse
So I just hung out and took pics
waters were plyed and fish sniffin pooches waited
more fishin than catchin goin down that morn but soon the lines go tight and rods bend
them whiteys are just as fun to sniff and I don't think he knows much difference
So after a few more we walked on down the road to journey onward
next stop found us in someones front yard of a dream home thank jah for friends of friends
A river crossing later found us in the Yellowstone NP/border hood.
Schwerty was the only one holding a yhp fish ticket so we all fished vicariously through him
and well we all casted well
Seems there was a hatch going down
and scatology work found digested mayo packets
After some bear paw tracks and discussion of whether pbr cans constitute native american artifacts and should be left. We crossed back over and said our goodbyes till next time we are blessed to share each others fishin smokin drinkin laughin company again.
I really wanted to go back to the S fork of madision and camp but now being solo didn't want the potential bear hazard and decided to head back to Henries Lake cg where I could fish that night and dawn patrol in the AM before heading home.
So launched around 4:20 and headed back over to the outlet and started exercisin sweet brookies and cuttties.
after a few tried the fulllsink again with a non cone or weighted head fly. got a few tugs and one in the net but overall the sink tip and a safety break or other respit till it sank was providing the belly or more willing to chomp water column presentation.
Well sure enough another front comes through and it gets windy, to the point of barely able to make headway backk to dock. Them damn fish keep whackin and shit i just kept chuckin and duckin. the anchor wouldn'thold by this point so I'd get one and have to tack backk and forth to get back into positon for one more tug.
Everyone else in the cg had bailed by then and the realization that if the winds shifted I'd probably be doing an unintentional cross lake cruise and I finally bailed. I made it to shore along the cg and a few guys helped. The damn your hardcore comment made me smile, more of a tug addict with a super durable hdpe boat was my reply. I rigged a couple throw ropes to pull the boat up onto the sharp ass basalt to minimize the white cap cheese grader damage and prob should of tried to pull it back to boat ramp.
Took the furkid for a walk to get rid of that internal boat rocking that was still goin on
Cool clouds as additional fronts rolled through
To windy to fuck with a tent so we just crashed in the dodge. Woke up about 2 to piss and check to see damn boat wasn't gone or fubared thankfully winds had died by then and knew the next morn was prob gonna be good.

Speaking of The Green, I managed to sneak out under the guise of taking out a client on Wednesday, check out the piucs on the fall browns thread, my buddy Dan hooked the biggest fish I have pulled out of the Green.
No can do this weekend, I have some house issues going (dry rot repair and painting)Samuel L. Jackson as Jules Winnfield: Oh, I'm sorry. Did I break your concentration?

Wife is not stoked about usin hers and viddy editing in general
I have less than 7 days to fish/row and landscape with 2 arms.
I have six weeks of pain and one arm strapped to my side coming

I would have shelled out for special use cash for Ken to whip out the good filmin gear.

If any you fools have edit skills or spare time I'll throw it all on a cd and get it to you
