Dickey Mo

The other day I was discussing with Ann (yes, she suffers endless rehashing of angling episodes) the fish from Saturday that I had hooked on the Rusty Spinner and then lost. My life is pretty full of work these days so I'm eager for any thought to distract.

She tells me to put my big boy pants on and go get that fish. She even suggests how I might carve out the right amount of time one evening to do so.

So I do.

And I did.

It's a long drive for just one fish, but I hate to disappoint the lovely.

      In my own mind, truly a legend, am I.

  3. Did he give back the fly he took the other day? If not, what good was the trip! Just kidding Steve, way to go back and get him.

    1. That was the other fish.

      If I had thirty more minutes I would have walked down to the tail of the pool and tried to get the TWO flies it took back. A task for another day.

    1. When it does, it's especially rewarding. When it doesn't it makes me want to snap graphite.
