The ball got dropped in my house yesterday and Walkers Cay Chronicles didn't get taped. Therefore I did not get to see it. Did anybody happen to tape it and if so could you make me a copy?
I would be very grateful.
Is that not a hanging offense? Who's gonna swing?
Sorry, Wdnfly, I don't tape `em nowdays as I've seen them so many times I can almost recite script. Yesterdays was from oldest series, tarpon in Florida Bay with Sandy Moret. As always, it was phenomonal.
For those of you who don't know this show, you are missing the boat. In this area Monday at 6 or 6:30 am and I think repeats in evening at about 5 or 6.
Walker's who ? No , JK , I've seen it. two jovial guys in a flats boat , saying " There's one over there...".."...Oh, perfectcast !.....he's got it !!!!" ZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz,....ZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zz. It looks hot and windy. http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/smile.gif
and not a Brookie in sight ! http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/smile.gif
One thing about trout OWL, they sure do live in pretty places.
wouldn't call the flats of the bahamas or lagoons and tidal rivers lined with spartina gr****ugly. Hot is one thing though. You find me a trout that can strip the line off your reel like a big bonita or redfish. The fight is uncomparable in the salt vs. the fresh.
Not to start a " C&R " type thread here, but I've honestly wondered if it could really be that much fun to fight a fish ( one fish) till your arms hurt and you were tired. I've seen the guys on the TV, aving to sit ot the rest of the day 'cause the fish wore them out. I mean, y all means, if you like it....feel free. I just wonder if I'd get bored trying to winch in something as big as my leg, and then " ZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzz" it just takes out 100' of line,....winch it in,....ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz,...winch it in...... Shawn, describe some salty fish fight. I may even have to try it sometime.......what do you use, like a 10 weight or something?!
Lets not forget that Steel Head are trout too and the can strip line off a reel in no time flat....also..... can anyone say King Salmon..They too are a fresh water fish and do just as much damage as a steelie if not more. I will so though...Salt water does have much bigger game fish, but the fresh water can hold it's own preaty well.
Don't kid us - nothing you'd like better than another C&R thread!
Let's say we're creating mythical freshwater fishing spot:
Weather & water is warm, nice breeze, clean air, no one around..... Fish of all sorts, many are sight-castable. There are bream of up to 5-20 lbs; trout regularly to 15 lb & up; strong b****over 25"; slender, strong, aerial b****cousins haunting the mangrove-rooted shoreline ready to ambush a popper; big gar in feeding frenzies; huge schools of giant striped b****busting bait right next to shore; and more -some of them foolhardy as a small bluegill & some spookier than the wariest trout. Then there are those nervous water spots where you throw in & are apt to hook almost any of the above, or perhaps even some huge loch-nessy monster you may or may not ever see. And lots are in very shallow water, for hundreds of yards around; and when they feel the hook & take off, the fly line throws a wake like a waterski as it cuts the water for 100 yards. They are all strong fish, accustomed to fighting daily currents. Many will leap all the way from the water (somersaulting as they go), and you can hear their scales and gill covers rattling at 50 yards. The depth and variety of color will amaze you - if you get them close enough to see. That's just a bit of saltwater fly fishing - you'd like it, you know you would.
Yes.. and then there's those fruity drinks and cold ones in the bar, as the bikinis stroll by. I love best the kind of fishing I'm doing at any given time, but the salt...ah....

Nice story - thanks. I read the printed thread last night shortly before bedtime, and had some reel-screaming dreams starring tarpon & snook.
My idea of a fine weekend centers around mountains, or at least rolling hills. Ms. Windknot's idea of a pleasant weekend requires hot temperatures, blowing sand and the lovely aroma of a salt marsh. The way I keep those weekends palatable is by taking my tackle along. A stout redfish or spunky sea trout helps me fill the time between bikinis and cold ones. Of course, the older I get the fewer of each is needed.
OK, I think I can answere your question here. When a fish fights hard and tires you out too, It's not time to quit. This is the time when you sit down and drink an ice cold brew. I thought everybody knew that.
I'm a Mtn. Dew man, myself. Beer smells bad. http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/smile.gif
Owl, you are just drinking the wrong kind of brew. I would suggest a fine Samual Smith's (England) beer, porter or stout. Another nice brew is from my buddies down at Sweetwater Brewery (they have a trout on their label). Freeze one mug, add beer, put Mile Davis or music of choice on the jukebox, enjoy. For an extra bonus, add mixed nuts.
That's what I know. J. Byrd, Resident Beer Snob
I think I shorted out the keyboard because my mouth is watering.

Heaven was spending two years stationed in Germany and traveling all over europe. The unique beers were unlimited in quantity and unrivaled in quality. http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/smile.gif
Hell is realizing those days were 30 years ago, and all beer in the USA has been pastuerized, for our protection. Yech! http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/frown.gif
Tight and cold bottles,

"Sweetwater" for me. Don't know what I like best, the ale or their label. Can't help but peel em off and save em-for what I don't know. I'll think of something. http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/smile.gif
Every Monday at 4:20PM you can go down to the brewery off of I-20 and tour the place. And get this, the beer is free and all you can drink. You can even help bottle some. I took my Frat there and the first thing they told me was, "Sorry, we are out of CO2 so we will have to drink out of the bottle." A tear came to my eye when I heard that. We polished off a case or two.
Another funny beer story: When dad was in Denmark he when to a pup and ordered an "American Beer". Without stopping the bar tender served up a pint of water, and when on about his business.
