    Default Work Stink, Fish good

    Anyone else living the old adage "The absolute worst day of fishing is better than the best day at work" right now? I know I am. So, hows everyone else's week coming along? I know I would rather be fishin.

    You all have it backwards... do work that is more fun... My work week so far has consisted of hauling 3 hunters to Admiralty, poking at a dead deer, and getting chased off the beach by a brown sow and her small cub. And that was just Sunday!

    The sun is out today. I think I'll see if any of those Kings that have been jumping and surface feeding are ready to play.

    Is it really fair to call this "work"???

    Worse than jail is an irate wife, if you don't work! But I am a luck one as my better half likes to hunt and fish too!

    Case,

    Any luck out there today? I am going to start my derby quest tomorrow afternoon and will continue until I hear news of any steelhead (yeah right). I heard 10 kings were caught off False Outer today. Sounds like they are coming in good.

    I like to fish for work
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Sounds like a good idea. Time to get my 100 ton license.

    Dont need it, no, but I am too close to getting it to not finish it up. That is a pretty sweet site though.

    No luck yet for me... but it's all due to a serious lack of rod hours. I've got a few loose ends to tie up at the Red Dog before I can get out... missing being out in this weather is killing me, so I've actually quit procrastinating the stuff I have to do on shore... should only be another day or so.

    No worries about missing an outing that never had a chance to happen!
