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.

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....

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.

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.

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!
