    :confused: a nude Jesse through 17 miles of wilderness? Doesn't Arizona have some statute on the books for the criminal harassment of wildlife?

    I am surprised that the veracity of this report has been brought into question.
    Especially by some of my closest friends and fishing buddies.
    Ivan I am surprised that it took you three posts to bring up the issue of my nudity being a public menace. You should have seen the panic at the trailhead: women screaming and running to cover their childrens eyes, men scrambling to find blankets to cover me up, it was quite hilarious, though laughing was a little painful. However, there was one senior lady that did give me a second and I think third look before her husband whacked her.
    There were some pictures, taken by the policeman that showed up, but they are probably not part of the public record until all the charges are filed. Pubic nudity, fishing without a license (shredded with my clothes), no valid ID or drivers license, see last item. I am sure that the desecrating a National Park will be dropped.
    Happy April 1st my friends.

    Sounds like the fishing was great. Hmmm...I guess fishing that good would make a sunburn and embarrassement in front of strangers worthwhile. Maybe you could start a new Groups forum titled fishing in the buff!

    a 22" rainbow in AZ after 1990 ? that was the first clue. and i'm sure there isn't a lake that reequires a 7 mile hike, let alone 17. great story, and thanks for the chuckle, but now i'm really feeling guilty for living in trrout mecca (MT) i lived in AZ long enough ago that there actually were a few 20+ trout, although that was lees ferry. used to be a couple payfer lakes on the res. that had some big stocked apaches. the most memorable fishing tho, was smallmouth on the black river. i hope they didn't pave any rods into there. its a great place to fish in the buff AND see some bears.
