Windy today was it?
Sounds a lot like my day at work, but with better scenery, sometimes it pays to just sit down and wait for better karma .Anything that can go wrong usually does go wrong. I drove up to my favorite little creek this morning. I usually have a good time up there, but not today. Every time I put a fly on the end of my tippet I would end up with a mess. I tried a Purple Haze, I hooked my vest. Had to cut it off so I tried a different fly. That ended up tangled also.
Tried a grasshopper. No go. I then tried my two nymph set up. Ended up with a birds nest after two casts. Cut it off and retied. That seemed to take forever. I finally got that tied up. But I said to hell with this hole. I drove down stream to the next spot. Tried the purple haze again. Caught every thing except getting the fly in the water. I stopped for a bite to eat.
After eating I said to hell with this. It was all going wrong. So I pulled up and went home. I usually don't fish weekends. But I went out today because of the nice weather. 78 today. I was the only one on 15 miles of this creek. I saw nobody else out. They are running underground cable up the road. So they are playing on the road. There are two new bridges over the creek. I didn't even take any pictures today, that's how pissed off I was.
There was a little wind. Nothing to really make things bad. It kept the bugs off of you. I don't mind the winds here in the summer time. They keep the bugs away and keep you cool. I have yet to use any bug spray yet this year. I guess I don't taste as good as I used to. I think it was all just me today. Once a klutz always a klutz. But I sure had a hard time trying to tie a double surgeon's knot. My fingers wouldn't listen to my brain.Windy today was it?
My lunch is something I take with me from home. A sandwich or some cold fried Chicken. Some chips and a few dill pickles. I left my beer at home. I should of took some with me. Or a shot of some hard booze. It might of calmed me down.Bet it was a nice place to eat lunch. Fishing is nothing more than an excuse to spend some time in nice places.
There is absolutely no excuse for this. Get your shit together, or stay homeI left my beer at home.
