Don’t forget to mend. And check the flows before you leave.

No rise, no foul; the delivery man was late on the mend. Never mind we showed up right after the flow was doubled, and the water heavily stained. The single time things were going as planned, the extremely pissed off brown trout proceeded to perform largemouth-esque backflips, and subsequently come unglued. Unexpectedly fun spectacle, while it lasted.

You know what they say, “When life hands you lemons….”

Jack Handy? I believe he said, “If life deals you lemons, why not go kill someone with the lemons (maybe by shoving them down his throat).”

I think a lot of people make the mistake of believing the “state psychiatrist” is their friend.

Mine sends me a Christmas card.

I got a fruitcake from one once. Still wondering if they were trying to tell me something.

You forgot to mention the drop in barometric pressure, the full moon the night before, the strong south wind, it was too hot, and don’t forget that we saw cows laying down which probably meant that all wildlife were not feeding. The odds were stacked against you from the get go

Unfortunately, those excuses sound way too intelligent – nobody would ever buy them if they came out of my mouth.

PS: Nice fricken pic brother.

Very cool photo. HDR action?

Thanks Andrew, no HDR. Just tweaks in LR3 to clarity, vibrance, and black levels!
