Fall time reds

Recommended Posts

Love this time of year.  Reds are hungry and water looks great.  

First things first.  Load everything up the night before.  

check list

  • Beer
  • Gas
  • A bottle of water
  • Crackers and Vienna sausage
  • flies with shiotty rusted hooks because I like to see how many fish I can catch on one fly
  • dry rotted leaders and cracked fly line
  • wool socks
  • crocs
  • towel
  • wet wipes
  • Beer
  • Patagonia and Simms gear only
  • Over price fly rods
  • Way over priced reel that looks cool as **** but I really don't even need one.
  • buff
  • wade boots
  • extra over priced rod and real because I'm a high sticker. (happens when you're short, **** off)
  • canoe
  • anchor that I never use
  • paddle/pushpole
  • registration up to date? close enough
  • etc. etc. etc..

All I wanna do is go catch a fish... this is a lot of fricken work.  son of a...
loaded all up the night before... sure makes it easier.  Get coffee and go.  Maximize sleep time for better fishing performance and the *********** never ending astros game.
