I'm not even sure why I'm posting this, and please don't take it as me bitching and moaning...but basically, here's the situation (if you can call it that): an old high school buddy was in town from way out of town. He wanted to fish. He wanted to catch some fish. We went to the Deschutes. It fished well. We caught a few trout, a few really nice fat slobs of trout. Now, the "situation": I wanted to get him into a steelhead and got up to a run where I thought he'd have probably the best shot all day (alas, no steelhead were hooked...). When we got there, I noticed someone about 200 yards upstream about two runs above where we wanted to fish. We sat there and hung out for a little bit getting rigged up and just chatting about your basic bullshit that a couple of dudes typically chat about. I pointed out the seam where he should start and pointed out the bucket where he should really be ready and he started making his way into the water. All of the sudden this guy who was flogging the water way above was now about 50' above this shallow riffle separating the two runs and providing many hand motions that a first glance one might have thought he had Tourette's or something. At this point, I called up to him, "hey, are you planning on fishing all of the way through here?", "no, just halfway through the run your in" I didn't really give it much thought at this point other than 'ok, cool, we'll just head upstream to other spot's...I mean, it's a big river with a shitload of decent water. No sense in getting bent out of shape about it. But as I was walking away after his "thanks a bunch guys for asking...", I had more of a WTF moment...apparently 500 yards of shoreline just isn't quite enough for some folks. that's really it. no question in there. just a silly rant. Oh, and yes, it was all glass all the time.
