LOL / Essential tools for fly fishing out of a kayak in salt water
« on: December 24, 2013, 05:44:25 AM »
Cheetos and a 2 ounce lead weight.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
When you find yourself in a spot that holds absolutely no fish. (Follow me. I know where plenty of those are)
1.  Spread the cheeetos out in the water to attract seagulls.
2.  Once the gulls start diving, attach the 2 oz sinker onto your tippet, and lower into the water.
3.  Act like you are catching fish, even if you see nobody around.  Don't let your sinker leave the water. 
4.  Keep this up for 5-10 minutes, or until all the cheetos are gone.
5.  Paddle away and break out your binoculars, and watch boats show up out of nowhere.

Cheap, easy entertainment for those dog days of summer.

I got some in the mail.  I use them to pick out fibers when I'm almost finished with a fly.

Anybody else need one?  Barter system is in place...   ;)

LOL / I was diagnosed with A. A. A. D. D. - Age Activated Attention Deficit
« on: December 17, 2013, 09:10:23 AM »
I was diagnosed with A. A. A. D. D. - Age Activated Attention Deficit
Disorder.

This is how it manifests:
I decided to wash my car. As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the hall table. I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. I lay my car keys down on the table, put the junk mail in the trash can under the table, and notice that the trash can is full. So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the trash first..

But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the trash anyway, I may as well pay the bills first. I take my checkbook off the table, and see that there is only one check left. My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go to my desk where and I find the can of Coke that I had been drinking. I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need
to push the Coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over. I see that the Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

As I head toward the kitchen with the coke a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye--they need to be watered. I set the Coke down on the counter, and I discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning. I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers. I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a
container with water and suddenly I spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table. I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, we will be looking for the remote, but nobody will remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers. I splash some water on the flowers, but most of it
spills on the floor. So, I set the remote back down on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill. Then I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do. At the end of the day: the car isn't washed, the bills aren't paid, there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter, the flowers aren't watered, there is still only one check in my checkbook, I can't find the remote, I can't find my glasses, and I don't remember what I did with the car keys. Then when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day long, and I'm really tired. I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail.

George Phillips, an elderly man, from Meridian, Mississippi, was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?"

He said "No," but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me.

Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available"

George said, "Okay."

He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again.

"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot and killed them both, the dogs are eating them right now." and he hung up.

Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to George, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

(True Story) I LOVE IT! Don't mess with old people.

REMEMBER, GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY. GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL.

Topic is unlocked.

I copied last year's trip plan and only modified it slightly.

It still needs to be cleaned up.

About You / Re: New member
« on: December 16, 2013, 05:30:54 AM »
Simon,

It was great to see you, and your family, at the CHristmas party.

Meetings and Parties are a good way to get to meet people, but you wont "know" them until you fish with them.

That being said, let's go fishing!
