The morning started off a bit disappointing when me and jake arrived at the river and saw the chocolate coming down. i think under a warmer time of year the clarity would have been fine for throwing streamers, but i feel it hindered us today. we fished up aways thru some fishy water to no avail. it wasn't long before we decided to drive and find some clearer stuff. once we got above the res we found the water to be ideal. we fished it for a couple of hours, each landing only one small fish each. i did move a few others but that was it. on the way home, we had already driven 5 or 6 miles, when i heard something from above, looked out the rear view and saw something bouncing down the interstate. jake thought it must've been a dirt clod from the jeep, but i knew right away it wasn't. i realized at that time i had left my bauer reel on top of the jeep. it's a bit banged up and will have to get a new foot for it, but i suppose it could've looked worse. shit that two reels now. this past summer after fishing the big hole with corey, i had left my loop on his bumper and it bounced checked down the road at 60mph. shit that's about $800 in reels that have been beat up cause i forgot to go thru my mental checklist of everything before driving off. for those that know me might be better off not lending me any reels cause i can't guarantee you'd get them back in the same condition that you loaned them. even though the temps were in the 40's it's still a bit early for consistant streamer fishing.
