I went with my boys and a couple friends out to Ilwaco looking for Salmon yesterday. No hits, no runs no errors 1 unclipped 12 lb. chinook left on base. It was a good day, but no fish. Not only that, we didn't even see fish being caught. Maybe 2 fish for 500+ boats. I have this "lucky fishing hat", a Corona promo hat I picked up in Mexico before an unplanned bonefish day. Up until yesterday, it was 100% - caught fish every time I wore it. True enough, we were trolling bait and blades, not fly fishing. But, still the had didn't come through. Then, when we got back on the dock and were unloading the boats, the two friends produced bananas that had been on the boat all day. So here's the question(s) - for those of you who are a slight bit superstitious. Did my hat run out of juice? Or is it just a lucky fly fishing hat? Or, did the bad banana juju trump the good hat juju? Bottom line, do I have to retire the hat and start the quest for a new lucky fishing hat, or do I continue to wear this hat on my next outing? Oh, yeah, there's gonna be folks dog me and ridicule me - bring it on. I am only looking for what the other irrational owners of lucky ___________ (fill in the blank with your own lucky fishing icon) have to say. This is serious stuff.
