    oh hell yeahs
    for the record that aint my vanity plate

    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

    car 54 where are you?
    have ya seen raft 22?

    wasn't a lot of heads up despite decent hatches but we forced fed a few

    i drew decent sticks and we stuck a few


    had a pretty good day
    ita been better if they tippped
    but whatevers they probably wanted a guide with a nice new boat and a seasons worth of days on the water who luvs to count and git em
    and ya gots an irrie old fishy skibum in a beat up tupparwhare mothership that don't quantify much
    i did row my ass off for em
    lumpy's team won
    good to see him

    next day the old man had a blue ribbon council sumthin meeting
    the furkid and i hit the gorge
    front blew through and i thought i was fucked
    but the white caps subsided sun poked through
    found sum poopers feeding along shore
    and managed to git one to eat

    a trip into the backing and about an inch a minute later


    "which is nice"

    headed back and floated a quick a with my dad n friend
    think he went 0-5 on that one
    hooked up with the roos crew and a cat from the drake n his bro
    put in and headed down stream

    stuck a few

    made er through the whites waters and into one of the more scenic river camps

    some chilled

    some embraced additional piscatorial pursuits

    ate drank puffed and enjoyed campfire companionship till the urge to get horizontal struck us all
    loaded up and headed back down river
    i manned the bimini topped rubber sticks and the etheopian cat rowed my pops n family friend into fish

    tried some witch docktor juju vodoo euro nymphin but it didn't produce

    i jumped up on my high $$ casting platform that keeps shit cold too and crushed it throwing junk and behind the lens

    happily floated down into a hot n sunny camp
    gs's bro drove down, stuck some fish, resupplied the party with provisions and shared the eve
    sun dropped and shelters erected, fajitas devoured, barley hoppy pops and cocktails consumed
    smot got poked and other sundries of goods


    the next day the Ethiopian cat rowed us into a couple fish
    sheldon did puppy stuffs like dig through the garbage for the bacon greased soaked paper towels
    we presented the fitting gift the river gods scored us the day before

    bucked camp

    some crafts got lighter

    loaded up mr sheldon

    and entered a canyon mr powell named for the locals

    stuck fish


    did stuff huge flyfisherman do
    like rerig tippet and stick the picky trico sippers with 20's
    sniffed troots

    tossed 16teeners down

    i dont toss outta the back much and a 8'4" sticks 6" short of mending around the oar
    mr sullivan rocked the sticks and put the dibs team into fish and floated into colorado


    said goodbye to the bday babe and the careless crew with a thanks for rowin all our crap lets do it again next year
    did a couple rounds of 2x puppy stuffs at dinner

    gs's buddy had never fished outta of drifty i rowed him for a lap at camp the night before so
    there's no way youre comin to utah and not gettin that checked off
    busted out our shuttle and j sheldon and my pops busted out another float
    fuck ya if ya aint doin it huge

    once again didn't see to many heads a couple on back eddie scum lines
    but we kept an eye out for risers

    stayed hydrated and elevated

    and managed to stick a few nice fish

    Nice!!!

    Thanks for those pics! Looks like some fun action. 'Roos caught euro-nymphing? You sure about that? I just cannot help myself from saying that those pictures of the pup are adorable! How neat to have that (soon to be big) little guy tagging along!! Already has that look on his face like he knows what the fuck is up.

    Cheers!!

    Oh, good grief.
    I have a euro nymph rod that I mostly bobber fish with.

    And that is a statement that I am conflicted about.

    I feel weird now.

    For the record all of my fish were caught on pink fat alberts.

    Yesterday was probably the best fishing day of my life, and I've had a lot of them.

    The day before SFB and I floated around Willard a couple times. We endured the 5yo chatter box for a few hours early and then an evening float provided a couple fish in the boat for Dibs and a two tail pump with a break off for me.

    Took a ride from the campground the next morning and scored a spool of 10 pound, a lantern globe to replace boomerang damage from an "accident" by the 5yo, and enough beers to float for the evening.

    We headed out for a float just before 6. As we were rowing away from shore we wondered if we were early as we didn't get anything till just before dark the night before. 75 yards from shore I had an 18 inch wiper inhale the Kastmaster i was throwing.

    From then on it was on. We were doubled up for pretty much the next two hours. Every cast was fruitful as big fish boiled all around us. I've heard of Wiper boils at Willard but had never seen anything like this.

    We each caught at least 12-15 apiece, all of them bigger than 18 inches on up to 22. These fish were running 6-8 pounds and were line taking tanks. I had one straighten out a swivel and swim off with my Kastmaster, I tied on a rattle trap and continued on as before.

    I'm not sure I'll ever be able to top last night, regular fishing days will be a let down, heh.









    Not to be left out was walking the dyke with SFB earlier in the day. The dude is a master of sighting and presenting flies from the top of the dyke.

    holy shite that was one of the more intense couple hours of catchin ive experienced
    i still cant believe that old dude in the float tube never changed techniques as the water around us expolded with shad, birds and freight train whipers and us in a constant state of doubled up drag screeching bent sticks
    definitely one of those dont happen a lot and count your blessings to witness and be part of
    Ive never seen boils like that so wide spread and lasting that long
    shouldnt you be smiling?
















    end o summer cheers

    Those wipers look like a good time. Just got back into town after a bit away. Took the long way home down through Montana. Hit some new and old water. More smokey up there than dibs on 4/20 but the fish didn't mind.

    Luckily I found one.

    Then for good measure - a steelhead - the best fight of my life. She turned out to be about 35 inches tip to tail. What a battle. Best day of fishing ever.

    hiked in and spent a couple nights next to a perfect little high alpine stream. the fish weren't huge but they made up for it with their willingness to smash anything that hit the water

    Short nosed sturgeon?

    Mrs. Plug and I timed the trico hatch pretty well last wknd. For example, we even had 7 doubles, basically all the fish were carbon copies of these.

    they were pulling all sorts of bs with the water levels on the west branch this weekend - bumped it from 300 to 600 cubes Friday night, up to 700 midday Saturday, then back to 300 Saturday night. makes no sense and fucks up the hatches. did have the opportunity to fish to a really, really nice fish for about an hour Saturday night but couldn't get it to eat anything. closing up camp in 2 weeks then back to saltwater for me
