Well, we battled some o dat high, muddy, mossy stuff but chased down some lower water, too. It was sort of slow, but we had some active spurts tossed in for fun. In the battle of row v. wade, both won out in the end. I was elated that the canoe hatch never came off yestidy.

scn and I found some common ground on that holy water, but our differences were magnified being cooped up in a canoe for hours. For instance, scn likes a single pin bow sight, and I can't live without three. He'll always be on the other side of those railroad tracks. \:D It's important to settle the serious issues if you're going to be fishing together.

scn caught 3 fish before I even got a bite. When I explained what a long walk it was back to the car, he let me catch a few. We ended up boating 72, with a great mixture of bows, browns, and brookies. We didn't catch anything that I wouldn't have to lie about just to mention. All caught and released.

Photos...

scn hasn't had a ton of fly fishing experience, but you'd never know it.





I spied shorefisherman a few hundred yards upstream and decided to give him a little scare. How can you not recognize those stunning good looks? (the camo boat, I mean). \:D I ran upstream right at him, and he had no idea who the jerk was that wanted to play river chicken. It was a ball watching him try to frantically maneuver that trolling motor to evade ramming speed. As you can see, he wasn't having much fun fishing yesterday either.



This is where whispy little fly rods benefit the angler. It makes the fish look a little bigger! \:D



I know there are a few that feel brookies have no place on the Caney, but y'all have got to be on crack or something. I love me some brookies. They are getting bigger, and I caught a few yesterday that looked like art.

My very gracious host left out the hour and a half stretch where he caught fish after fish and I caught one-even after he gave me his spot and the fly he was using. It is always great to learn from a generous teacher. Every fish I caught sans one came on flies I had tied per gil's recipes.

It was another great day on the water-many thanks, Gil.

Hey, you and I had a whole half gallon left when we made it back! Another one of life's little live and learns without a bad ending. But, I will admit to a twinge of concern there for a few as I was pumping the bulb on Tues.

The water was just as bad yesterday during generation as it was for us on Tues. Fortunately this time we were lower down, and immediately headed up the creek where it had cleaned out some.

You certainly hit a home run for me with your rod advice. I absolutely love the new rod!

Yeah, I love this thing. I actually keep it in my pocket even when I'm wading underwater. You can just toss it in the bottom of the boat or duck blind because it's indestructable. It's so freeing to not have to carry a camera around in a Zip Lok outdoors. I shopped around and got it on sale I think at Best Buy.

Olympus Stylus 770 SW

The other day, though, I got this big ole ugly smudge right in the middle of the lens. I couldn't seem to wipe it off. I can't seem to identify the blemish.... Scroll

Here are a few I took on my vacation a few weeks ago. The pond coi (goldfish) would skeedaddle as soon as they realized I didn't have food. No, no nieces were actually harmed in the making of this film. \:D I wish I had thought to make an underwater video, though.

Heck yeah. Thgere was a dude in the carp tournament that found a public coi pond in a park. Anything open to public fishing and in the carp family is fair game. He caught him some goldfeeshies!

The ones I took pics. of looked like they had their own personalities. I got shots of the same ones over and over because they were the only ones that weren't afraid.
