Moving quickly through a run this time of the year is the most fitting way to address these junkyard dogs no matter what you swing.

Last week in camp I noticed an October Caddis buzzing the lantern.
Yep, it would be cool to bust one on a skater. I wonder if it would it be a big wash or a showy slash like a striper ?
I'll probably never know but I do wonder about it.

Good luck to the northbound crew.

Maybe it is just the ADD, but if I do any one thing for long enough, regardless of how cool it was when I started, i get bored eventually. For me a big part of the reward comes from overcoming a challenge or building some degree of skill or knowledge. With spey casting at least, I do it so infrequently that each time is a lot like starting over, and I get a fair amount of reward out of just remembering how to get the line and hook out there.


+1 on this entire post. Well said.

SG,
If you have a 796-4 RPL you'd like to get rid of, shot me a PM. I like those old brown Sage rods. After all the RPL was the One, one day long ago.
Thanks,
SF

I don't know what it is, other than it's a Sage. It caught The One, if that helps.

Stonefish,

It was a 796-2 RPL that I sold. Still have the 8100-2. Just got a 7100-4 Allen, so may decide to sell the Sage. 4 piece are so much better suited to travel.

Fishermen are funny...... I like this place because PP is more like a heavy metal audience. Hardcore "flyfishing-as-religion" sites tend to be like Classical music audiences.......in that, if a classical guitarist suddenly plugged a Les Paul into a Marshall amp and started wailing a killer solo, the audience woudl be horrified. They'd plug their ears and run for the exits. Much the same as "flyfishing-as-religion" toolboxes eschew any other form of angling or a photo of a fish caught on a spinning rod...the tool of ignorance, in their opinion.

BUT.....if a heavy metal guitarist like Eddie Van Halen pulls out an acoustic guitar and plays "Spanish Fly" the audience goes wild. Just like PP did when Stam pulled out a fly rod to catch a bonefish, or when Parker used a spey rod to catch his 30 lb trophy BC steelhead a couple years ago. Yes, some snickered at Van Halen / Stam / Parker, but it was in good natured rib poking mode, not outright animosity.

I like heavy metal crowds better. More open minded, in my opinion. At the end of the day, we're all a bunch of idiots waving expensive carbon fiber sticks at fish with brains smaller than Jose Canseco's left nard.

No metal here either. Classic rock all the way. What's swing?

We don't 'low no animosity here on PP. We're all equal opportunity razzers.

Gotta' say tho, that Parker hooking and landing a trophy on a Spey rod isn't like a blind squirrel finding a nut, more like a blind squirrel finding the gold of the Sierra Madre! Considering the odds, Parker should never pick up a fly rod again. No - maybe Parker should never pick up any rod again. It's all downhill for him.

Do agree that fishermen are funny, which is why this thread is so entertaining.

wOOt!!!!

No can do on never picking up any rod again, SG! Still have some goals left to accomplish before I leave this earth such as....

-Getting a 35+ pound steelhead on a spey rod. laugh
-getting that 20+ steelhead on a spinner. Got fly, eggs, pink worm, rag, spoon, plug, and jig covered!
-getting a king over 50 pounds.
-getting a king over 70 pounds.
-getting a silver over 20 pounds.
-Putting in some serious fishing hours with my children.
-Countless places to fish on this earth (too many to name here).
-fishing and catching a fish without a guide.

Oh wait, who am I kidding. That last one ain't gonna happen! laugh

The fact that Parker takes himself so seriously is what makes him the perfect candidate to be the next supermodel spokesman for the fly fishing world.

I think he actually needs to tighten up his ascot. wink

No doubt, maybe you should check on the drug testing thread on the Dark Side, or just give some of whatever you're taking................

That Parker guy, he's a good sport, but I don't think he'll make the cut for either the next fly fishing or bait fishing super model. Something about the "model" part of the equation just doesn't add up - ascot or not.

Isn't anyone else going to weigh in on music in this Sage ONE thread?

Here's the scenario.....
You're in a favorite run and it's full of players.
It's least 100 yards long...probably longer.....yep, longer.
It's all yours and there's no friggin' wind.
The wading is tough but that's the trade for good structure.
The casts are coming pure....most anyway.
It's big water and you have the range dialed.
You hooked up and landed a nice fish at the head.
Now you're snot-nosed and pushing hard...hell, you're moving down on the swing.

This would be rock....loud, heavy metal rock barely audible over the roar of the rapids downstream.
And hopefully there's fresh underwear back at camp. grin

DD
Who has the above on the schedule for this weekend.
Hopefully it plays out.

I can't abide the new style of cuntry music. period..... would rather listen to Milli Vanilli.

About the time that the garth brooks' and alan jacksons' took over the cuntry market there was a huge surge in fly-fishing sales. coincidence......?

Got Cash, got Jennings, DAC and Eagles, now I've ordered up a shitbunch of old Neal Young, Pearl Jam, Willie Nelson and Bob Dillon to go along with my Marley, Van Halen, AC/DC, GnR, O.a.R. and Nirvana..... going to give Jeff Bridges and the Abiders a taste on my drive north this year, I'm driving solo so I get to listen to what I want to listen to...no Grateful Dead for me....still full from last year.

haven't had a chance to cast the ONE.....

....yet.
