Go to lone, let us know how it was. Went two weeks ago, landed 4. It was still a bit agleaish, but should be good by now. I have a secret Lone lake pattern. I'll Email you. Unless you wanna drive 6 hours? Probally not.
Macrowdy has so much damn video equipment, It should be a good film.
Yes. I had another answer worked out in my head but being as old as I am I forgot it.
I think I have my shakes thing figured out. I pre-tie up the flies that I want to use with leaders and keep them in a Pips container. I did that to about 20 flies and now I will see how it works. That is on the small flies. The bigger ones I just wrap a rope around them. It works. Since I have so much time on my hands and that river is so close I think I will go back and try it all out. I have a very strong magnifying glass that I use for tying them in the first place.
"Hi My name's Whitey, I've got a secret lone lake fly I will e-mail it to you!" Um yeah Whitey, sure you do.
More Dialog from Yesterday:
"Hi my names JIM I'm an Old Man. I live 17 miles from the Stilly! Did I happen to mention that I live only 17 MILES from the STILLY!? Since I live so close to the STILLY I think I will go there tomorrow and lay down on the side of the river. Last time I did that I got up all by myself! I am pretty proud of that. And I have this lethal weapon numchuck walking stick that folds up and then unfolds with a SHHHWik! It comes in handy for fishing things out of the river that I drop."
MacRowdy: "Hey Jim you wanna peek into my secret fly box?"
Jim: "Hell NO! What would I wanna do that for!"
(Takes a peek anyway.)
Jim: "You are so damn neat and organized. I hate that! I hate neatness. If I had my flies that neat I would go crazy!" (opens up one of his 50 boxes and flies start spilling out.)
I think to myself: "yep he's not kidding." And after he showed me how cool it is to put your flyrod into the back of your subaru legacy/fishmobile without breaking it down, I think to myself (he sure does hate neatness!" Finally he adds triumphantly:
"You know those roads that are all bumpy and you should only go on them with a 4 wheel drive?"
Jim: "Well I always drive on them with this subaru. I can take it anywhere!"
Macrowdy,I just noticed that your story that your telling is starting to go away from the truth. Your starting to add things that are not there. I gave you all the facts but now you getting them mixed up.
Quit trying to make me out to be a saint. You just saw my good side, wait until you see my bad side.
Well, laugh all you want, Whitey's suggestion bagged 5 of the 7 fish I caught on Saturday. Better than I've done before at Lone, so Whitey, Thanks for sharing...(this is starting to feel like a AA meeting)
