  • Awesome day at Cherokee

    I made a solo run to Cherokee last Monday, and it was a glorious day. The weather cooperated, the leaves were changing, followed a flock of turkeys down the trail, a herd of elk crossed the river just below me, watched a mink dive in the river, and the fish were willing to play. I landed an even dozen, all on eFlyz. I spent the day with my GoPro2 on my head, and my Nikon D-70 around my neck, and was able to put together a pretty cool film, all in HD (click on the little gear and try it in HD if you have a fast enough connection).

      That was durn near as good as a Pink Floyd video! Great fishin'. I could jes' feel it as you set the hook anunderneath of that bridge!

      Thanks fer lettin' me fish vicariously through yer exploits. That was refreshin' to say the least!

      Now. . . Tell us a bit about the soundtrack.
      If you have difficulty understanding the post above, read it out loud and it should make sense. This NGTO member is known for his poor hill-billy upbringing and his affinity for all things from Louisiana (particularly if it relates to LSU). It makes for a poor mix of accents and much difficulty in translation. He was doing well for so long, but now seems to have regressed.

        That is a guy from SoCal that goes by the name of Buckethead. He always appears with a white mask on, and a chicken bucket on his head, quite the quirky getup! He popped up on my Pink Floyd Radio channel on Pandora, and I just really dug the sound. He has a ton of albums, and seems to play a bunch of different styles of music.

              Great video, FM. And solid fish, too.
              Those Eflyz sure are effective. I really enjoyed watching the cast-strip-strip-wham action. Gotta love streamer fishing. Thanks for the report.

              There's nought as queer as folk.

              "From the end of May to the end of August, a drizzling or thoroughly wet day is the best; next to which is a showery one, and then a bright day with a breeze of wind; a dark day without wind is the worst of all." W.C. Stewart

                FM,

                Does that fly float, or sink, or both? Thanks for sharing the video!

                  Said the trout to the fly fisherman "Why don't you drop me a line sometime."

                        It is called the #2 Boilermaker, 4th one down on the right.

                        Thanks for looking.
