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.
I could easily write an unbelievable book on this one but hopefully taking my 11 year old grandson out tomorrow
since he has no school.
Come to think of it, my first Veteran's Day off as a veteran at age 64.
