Default Tubers

Readers of Byron's daily stream report should be familiar by now with his thinly-veiled references to a very popular recreational activity on the Little River. Today's local newspaper, The Daily Times, carries a front page article on the "sport" of tubing in Townsend - complete with a pretty, bucolic, full-color picture of the "sport". Thought I'd offer a link to the article for those unfortunate few out there who have been deprived of the opportunity to compete. I especially liked the comment from a local campground operator towards the end of the article -- something about the only problems they've had this year have been from fishermen??

Enjoy!

Gerry

Who knows, maybe it was those people who run out to the water with their spinning rods and start chucking anything they have out in the water? The most trouble I've had in the park or outskirts have been from what some people call "fishermen" but will not be awarded that title from most others who respect the sport.

Hey TW:

I heard that your ol' dad is a better fly fisherman than you...that he can cast farther, catch more, wade deeper. *And, before you respond, remember "who's ya daddy!"

Yea thats why i caught 23 and he caught 3 on cascade lake and I had to teach HIM to fish a nymph. As for casting farther i could cast farther too if i weighed wat is it? 215 pounds.

TW
