    Nope, just an irradiated Hanford guy keeping you folks on the wet side safe from nuclear waste. The project to which I've been assigned means a great deal to us on the East Side & you. I own my job; always have. And I'll get this one done. too. Feel free to fish & hunt for me, cuz I sure ain't gonna have much chance to do either (but, as stated, I will from next year on . . . you do what you have to do.).

    Fished yesterday and today. 10:00 hit and everyone disappeared to watch the Hawks. Very enjoyable after that. I've now got a severe case of chumatitis.

    Hiking yesterday. big church project today, now it's too late.
    When I retired (2011) I figured I'd have lots of time to fish, sail, hike, hit the gym. I discovered there are still only 24 in a day and 7 of those in a week.
    at least I manage to hit the gym most days. Fishing- I do well to get in a couple of days/week if that.

    3rd annual 3 day Grande Ronde float this weekend. But was cancelled Thursday due to anticipated blowout conditions that failed to materialize. :( So I fished the big river at Ringold on Friday and got tugged by 2 hatchery brats, they are on the smoker as I write this. That was a great way to break in my new spey rod. Tied some flies yesterday.... to use today, which was not as good a day, but did manage to land one smallish and dark hatchery buck. He is still out there. Oh wait, this was supposed to be excuses why I DIDN'T fish.... sorry. ;)

    Spent the day driving my wife around taking Fall pictures. Time well spent in my book.

    Going commando is the only way to fish. Excuse is not valid.

    Sadly, I spent the day on the water. To make it appropriate for this thread... I caught nothing and only had one Cutt leap OVER my popper, aka "Popover"
    :rolleyes:
