Rain, rain, go away. Come back when the season’s over.

The Self-Centered Fly-Fishing Prick [in 85 words]

The western US is a desert. So what! Precipitation is the lifeblood that keeps the majority of the lawns in the suburban sprawl green, but I don’t use my yard so I say xeroscape it all. Meanwhile, all this recent rain is cramping my style! The entire South Platte river system is blown out. I thought about crossing the divide but that shit is headed up too. A man cannot live on meat and potatoes alone. Nor can he via clandestine bass fishery jaunts either.

Saw 3 rafts floating the Eagle River on Monday. Usually don’t see rafters on the Eagle past Mid July. Water clarity was good between Vail and Wolcott, but off colored west of Wolcott.

Tailwater. That’s all I’ve got to say about that.

…and the season is never over, MG. Ever.
