"Dress better"

This happened to me multiple times on the S. Platte in CO when I lived there. Both the Dream Stream section and the Deckers/Cheesman canyon sections. Always when I was with my father in-law or friends who did not fish a lot. Apparently nobody else tries to help family/friends get into fish on new water in CO. I used to take it as a compliment- maybe I look like I know what I am doing! Now I feel like a schmuck....thanks swimmy.

Dress better -you crack me up. You probably snorkel better, read better, play tennis better, etc. than a lot of guides as well .

Yesterday a Federal officer was waiting for me at the take out as there had been some concern that I was illegally guiding a piece of blm water.
Is this when you were totin' SG around? I can see the mistake. Young square jawed buck, nice boat, rowing a retirement-age sport or two.

I was asked once on the OP...by a guide.

So what did the Fed do when he found out you were not a guide ???
First he spoke to each one of us separately to make sure our stories jived. Then once he realized he was talking with Salmo and Swimmy he apologized, said he was a big fan, and asked if we wanted to hold his pistol.
