    Locking my keys inside my car at the riverside pullout... outside of cell range. Good times.

    I'm always scared that my clothing/gear will not be as fancy as the other fisherman, and they will make fun of me.

    Chicken!

    Mumbles thrice, but he said a tick under his balls...there has to be bonus points for being afraid of a tick under your ballsack.

    CodyM, how about an introduction before you start bagging on me? Hello, I'm CodyM and the number 5...er 1 reason I'm scared is running into Mumbles. Let me tell you that based on your #1, #2 and #4 reasons you should want to run into Mumbles. Broken bones can be bypassed, painful but true. I'm a bonafide decision maker (even though you can see I've lost a bet or two in my time) and those decisions end up safe at home at the end of the day. Never be with #2 when #4 happens. See the afore mentioned sentence about ending up safe.

    I guess I solved that fancy clothing and gear issue for you then didn't I? Talked to one of your neighbors today...it is almost stocking day at a location near you.

    Having torn up both of my ankles, my biggest fear is doing it again and getting my dumb ass stuck somewhere. I like to bushwhack off the beaten path.

    I never worry about TP.

    Neither does my bro in law...

    You really know what I like about Montana, besides the fish. You can leave your car/truck running and go into a store and shop. When you come out your car/truck will still be there. No body to bother you when you are fishing.

    This is in the regs of Montana. This is on river etiquette. Do not encroach on another angler. Use the "visual rule of crowding" and attempt to keep out of site of other angler, if at all possible. You just got to love it here.

    And no tweakers that I know of. And of course no Mumbles

    My biggest fear is falling seriously injuring myself.

    I was by my self one year up on the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie, and seeing hundreds of spent 9mm casings and empty shot gun shells gave me the creeps.

    I also fear forgetting my fishing license and wadding boot.

    Mumbles cracks me up. Someday I got to meet him.

    There's actually a few well-known Bigfoot sitings circulating around the net with regards to the Kalama (the most well known is a bigfoot swimming at night in Beginners Hole). They cross my mind fishing in the dark, it's hard not to give in to the imagination when the world turns to black.

    I was fearless before I read this thread.
    Now I'm afraid to leave the house.
    Wha... whuzzzat noise I just heard?


    Edit: Finally thought of something to fear: Arriving at my intended destination only to find another fisher already fishing right where I wanted to fish, and then beating myself up over not getting up earlier. I really fear having to take that :beathead:kind of beating.

    My sister has a place up in Greenwater, I enjoy sending her all the sighting reports for Bigfoot in her area, of which there are many. Here's the listing of reports for Washington State. Have at it...
