Well it has now been 17 days since I've had a line in the water. Every year once the C and R ends, I go into a fishing funk. This lasts until about this time of the month when I head to Central Oregon for 4 days floating the Deschutes and chasing its redside rainbows. Well the car is packed, the raft loaded and the single malt purchased. In about 5 hours, we point our noses south towards salmon flies and rattlesnakes. I can feel the funk lifting with each passing minute. Then a few minutes ago I log onto a guide's site to check for the latest Deschutes info and he is talking about the large chinook run that is coming into the river. Hmmm, a 3 weight, some 4 pound test and a glow bug???? Take care gang and I'll chat at you next week.
