Lack of Chrome

I bailed out of my office today for a couple hours to fish a favorite run on the Sky. The river was at 2800cfs and rising but fished well. I landed a good bull trout, on a black and red/violet Popsicle, that gave a fair account of itself out in the heavy water. Afterwards, I stopped at the "Tacos El Rey" roach coach for a plate full of adovada tacos and still beat the rain back into the city. Ahhh yes, a good day but for lack of chrome.

Leland.

Its all good....

Sounds like a decent start but with the morning weather folks talking floods we will have new water to be searching around in while eating leftover Turkey lunches!
I saw an interesting use of military hardware the other day. I was fishing a very local stream and I encountered a group of young fellows crowded around a Hatchery outfall creek two of them were wearing ear-pices and when I walked up on them from behind they were very suprised ( I used a trail known only to me and a few black bears). I chatted a breif Hello as I walked past and waded the riffle over to the "reular trail" back to where the cars all park. I noticed these little black boxes along the trail they were probably hidden but due to my past life I have a habit of looking for trip wires and such. These guys had set out electronic listening post to be alerted of the approach of 1 predatory monsters, 2 other anglers , or 3,Law Enforcement trying in vain to arrest poachers!
Can you imagine? t
This is incredible I hope I dreamed this one up but I am pretty sure I saw what I saw.

Moonlight,
Are you sure that you didn't run across John Ashcroft and Alberto Gonzales?!
