    Default A different trip to the Caney...

    And I couldn't stop to fish! I had nowhere to land!

    My dad and I rented a plane with a long time friend of ours so I could fly, and I couldn't think of anywhere better to go than to the Caney! So, rather than tell my story, I'll show you.

    Taking off out of Murfreesboro-


    Randy and I sightseeing-

    Sluice running-


    Betty's Island-


    Landing!-

    The steps, with two gentlemen fishing-

    Thanks, Trey!

    A very cool and different kind of fishing report. Looks like you had a great time!

    just when you thought that you had discovered fly fishing as the most expensive hobby in the world...you learned to fly!

    Actually, I've been around planes since I was 2 weeks old. I've known I was going to be a pilot since I was about 2 years old, and I'd watched Top Gun so many times by about 5 years old that I could tell you all the mistakes in the movie. Aviation is my life, always has been. I've always had expensive hobbies, paintball being the main one. I've honestly spent about $4k on paintball stuff, I bought a used gun that retailed for $2,000 when it came out for $800 on Saturday, it got here yesterday. Fly fishing is nothing, because once you get a good foot in the door it becomes cheaper.

    But yesterday was the first day I've really been turned loose in a plane. Randy had me do turns, and gave me pointers for smooth flight. He is a 757/767 pilot for American Airlines, and my dad is an Airbus A320 pilot for JetBlue Airways.
