So, Big Fred, Nick Amato & I are in a Chinese food joint for dinner tonight, somewhere in Washington, just finishing up and talking about our fishing plan for tomorrow when the bill and fortune cookies arrive.
Nick says…”Okay, the fortune is going to tell us how fishing is going to be tomorrow.”
Fred breaks his cookie, pulls out the fortune and reads it! Crazy, huh?
Making it even more of a “no way” moment is the fact that fishing today had been very tough. The water is low, the temps extremely cold and the steelhead returns very poor in this part of the world and only 1 steelie landed between the three of us — plus Jim Teeny, who had also been with us earlier.
Now, however, I’m very exited to see what the action’s like the AM!
So, maybe you can’t wear a hoodie into a mall or convenience store anymore, but they sure can come in handy on the water when an errant cast comes whizzing upside your dome!
For this round of our little Fill in the Blank game, use the comments section below to tell us what you think Big Fred Contaoi may be thinking here about his wild-casting boat mate.
Every once in a while you need to get outta the office and take a “mental health” day…or three days, as was the case last week when Big Fred Contaoi and I headed north to Eel River country, Monday-Weds for some “chrome therapy.”
