    It is good to read a usless report that isn't mine. I was headed out today also. The sun is shining brightly here and has for about a week now. And the temps are in the low 40's. But the wind continues to blow and coming off the Continental Divide snow fields it is down right cold. So cold even when the sun shines the ice don't melt.

    So it is safe to say I came home.

    I didn't get skunked because I didn't fish.

    OMJ, you still got skunked. You just did not have to get all geared up and out in the cold to get skunked. I got all geared up, launched the toon, kicked and rowed, froze my b@!!$ off and worked hard all day to get skunked. I wanted to try again yesterday but the wife had other plans for me around the house and yard. She said if I'm not catching any fish then I might as well be of use to her.

    Its a b!t(h to have leaking waders. The fix didnt work, so I will have to go buy new waders, but no money yet. Maybe couple more outings with wet feet. Maybe plastic bag inside with work. Will search site for suggestions. Not sure what way to go. I want to stay warm but during the summer cool. Went to Lone yesterday and released 3 near the end of the day and missed a couple. Nice sunny day, but still cold. I want to come back up to that lake and try again.

    OMJ, when mine starts saying "you still here" I'm betting she is ready for me not being around to answer. Your's may mean something different. Mine is good to me though, puts up with way too much of my crap.

    Usually when you have over 30 years with the same woman, things can get pretty relaxed. I can almost do what I want. Just as long as I don't stray. And being that I'm retired. All my time is my time. It's a sweet deal.

    She bought it for me. The story behind it is that I use the handle on many other web sites. and it seemed that I was always being called that so she went out and got the hat. Lots of people like the hat. I got another one for Christmas, but it's not as nice as my orange one so I don't wear it.. The new ones crown is to high. and I look like a dork in it.

    OMJ, we've recently seen your shaved globe. The new hat does not make you look like a dork...but something probably does. Have you fished that hole lately? I'm waiting for a real fishing report to read.

    I'm afraid that you must of picked up some shark repellant on your waders some where along the way. It repells all fish from biting on your flies. I had the curse when I lived in Washington. Washing your waders doesn't help.. So I opted to fishing without waders. If your in a toon switch to a boat. Just stay out of them waders. Or get a new pair. Sometimes that helps, but not all the time.
