    Default Lost net

    If anyone should find my net I'd appreciate hearing from you. Lost it last week on Lynn Camp Prong. Also a floatant container and a water bottle. Don't ask. I'll just say it sucks to get old.

    Yeah, but getting old beats the alternative... I hope someone finds and returns your stuff.

    There's also a lost cell phone floating through the s. holston. last seen off big springs road. If you find it, you can have it.

    I found a pair of glasses on the clinch yesterday, carried them around on me with the intention of posting them as "found". unfortunately, I lost them myself somehow. guess they didn't want to be found.

    hope you find your net....

    never too old! I'll be up there this weekend. I'll keep my eyes open.
    If a trout bites this, I'm gonna drop him off at Pearl Vision Center!

    I would like to say this is a refreshingly unusual bit of honesty from an angler, but I think rather you are being a bit hard on yourself. I like to blame my poor results on the fish and conditions rather than myself.
    Please bear in mind that I have no idea what I am talking about.

    I love fishing with my brother, because I can always blame poor results on him. "Oh, I let him fish upstream from me." Or "Well, I was really out there to show him the spots." Or my favorite, "It was about to get good, but Todd had to leave."
    It would never dawn on me to blame the mountains, when I have a perfectly good patsy on the stream next to me.
    Life is hard. But it's a lot harder if you're stupid.

    Default It's the rocks

    Steve,

    Blame the rocks. Last night several of them conspired to trip me. Then as I fell, 2 more leaped under me so I would fall on them instead of soft gravel. I did not get a single strike out of that run and it was those rocks!!

    Thank goodness it is raining this morning and I have an excuse to rest my rock bruises. It isn't the mountains or our age, it's those ROCKS!
