I'm going fishing

StevenSteven Senior MemberPosts: 2,202 Senior Member
For the first time in a year.

A new area, closer to Des Moines, for me. Received mucho tips from Joe on where to go.

Hopefully, the water will come down a bit more.

Happy (early) weekend!

    Tightlines.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    It happened.

    Friday was slow, Saturday was better. Easier trip from Des Moines, than from Chicago, that's for sure.

    Beetles, crickets and BWOs

    Took our Chief Investment Officer who's new to fishing. He got strikes but only hooked a couple.

    I'm sure he spent Saturday night dreaming..."Slack is Evil!"

    I'm on the bank of the Kitimat River with no salmon moving up. It pretty much sucks.

    Is a BWO some sort of fancy-man bobber?

    How many catfish did y'all get?
  • StevenSteven Senior Member Posts: 2,202 Senior Member
    BWO stands for blue wing olive mayfly.

    A number of genii fit the bill of having an olive body and gray wings that are almost bluish. Most prevalent in Southwest Wisconsin is genus Baetis.
  • StevenSteven Senior Member Posts: 2,202 Senior Member
    No catfish. Only went deep once and connected.

    Pink Squirrel off the tippet with a **** trailing. Took the squirrel.

    That's because you ain't usin' no worms, son. Get some Catalpa worms or at least some Looseeana Pinks, fer cryin' out loud.
  • StevenSteven Senior Member Posts: 2,202 Senior Member
    **** = San Juan Worm

    As Bob W. (aka Driftless, aka Nimrod) once told me, "Generations of Wisconsin farm boys have fished worms after it rains. So should you."

    The Baetis bears a striking resemblance to a tungsten bead and a Pheasant tail. Its uncanny.

    Is this a fishing board or an entomology circle jerk??!??!??

    You boys need Jesus and Copenhagen. And worms.

    I'm practically there. Ask Joe K, George, Steven, Butner or any of these other dry-fly-or-die purists.

    This hasn't been a fishing board since 2007.

    I'll go slumming with you anytime. Do you throw your beer cans into the water, or do you fill them up with water first so they'll sink?

    I meant to ask you.... Please tell me you own a Stetson, a pair of Justin Boots, a pickup, and you're dipping now...

    It's always really bugged me that I can't pull off wearing a cowboy hat.
  • BuffcoBuffco Senior Member Posts: 9,618 Senior Member
    It's the Brooks Brothers suit. Get some Wranglers, boots, and a can in your back pocket.

    Bring your sister or you will be ostracized.
  • StevenSteven Senior Member Posts: 2,202 Senior Member
    Now my sister has lived outside of Dallas for at least 20 years. She has a cowboy hat, Wranglers, boots, and probably a can of Cope....and an accent.
  • BuffcoBuffco Senior Member Posts: 9,618 Senior Member
    So, YOU'RE the sister.

    Trout deserve the sanctity of deep water.

    I'm paraphrasing but I think it may have been Lee Wulff who said that. But I think he was only referring to nymphing. Streamer fishing, I'm sure he would have agreed, is ok. ;)

    Us fancy types drink out of bottles. Cans are for the riff raff

    Yes, that was Lee Wulff. Then he went fishing for Atlantic Salmon with a four-weight.
  • Shawn C.Shawn C. Senior Member Posts: 5,512 Senior Member
    4 wt. for Atlantic Salmon? I would do that. If I'm not going to catch any fish there's no sense in hucking an 8 wt. around all day, right? ;)

    I can imagine how much googling Buffco has to do to get the gist of this conversation. :0
