Doublespey Busted ...

On his annual brat fest with Jeff & myself on the coast.

Give me some feather flingers for ten hours and look how much we can corrupt them :eyecrazy:



And there's more!




Thanks fellas, perhaps we'll do one more time next year or perhaps a little earlier with your more typical approach! :hehe:

ROTFL

Great job, looks like fellow forumn fly fishers which have been caught coming out of the closet for a day.

Got to get some of those glow in the dark boot eyelets, getting those things threaded before dawn breaks, it getting really difficult, especially when it is 30 degrees or less and you are standing on ice.

I knew this would happen when I started hanging out with guys that swing both ways.

Thanks for a great day Bob. My one gear trip a year was a memorial one and got some fish for the freezer. I highly recommend Bob's Walking float trips.

Unhappy

It is so sad to see a couple of friends go bad. I feel we as a community failed them somehow. It is clear to me now that Nancy Reagan was wrong, it is not enough to Just Say No To Gear Fishing! The allure is too stong. Much like demon rum and evil crack, gear fishing ruins lives. Let us just remember our two friends like they used to be.

I will tie a fly for both your souls.

Right on Jeff ...

That was the part that hurt the most. Drift rods AND floats AND pink worms.

I shuddered at the thought; where is Haig-Brown when you need him the most?

Not Pink worms underneath the float.

I did just order 5 haig-brown books to read over the holidays does that help.

It could be awhile before we see time on the water again.

I'll take your word on 'no pink worms ...'

And the reading choice(s) will reinstate a portion of your lost soul.

But "gut goo" and a half inch of pink yarn ... you got a long way to go. I'd recommend you send everyone on the board a crisp $10.00 bill and we'll quite hammering on you.

OH.....MY.....GOD.....

I feel like I've been stabbed in the back both of these guys slept in the Martini Bar this past fall! And here I thought the smell was that somebody had stepped in something along the river.

I'm shocked, dismayed and generally confused - I need to go away and ruminate over this, maybe a good single malt will help. On second thought I'm sure some Darrington moonshine might be more appropriate

Rumour has it that these guys are so bad at what they do they need to jump in a bath of tomato juice at the end of the day.

Rumor has it that both were seen at Ben Howard yesterday trying to spey cast a chrome and pink Hot Shot. An empty bottle of shrimp oil was found there when they left.
