Ordered an eagle claw featherlight 7í fly rod after getting home to replace it. After getting home, baked a few with some lemon pepper, lots of butter, sea salt and foil. Also fried up a few the next day in cornmeal salt lemon pepper and old bay.

I guess I'll have to call TIPS. Wanton waste of wildlife.

And several days later a 14Ē brown was found floating downstream. A postmortem revealed the poor critter had ingested half a granola bar and the entire plastic wrapper.

Tragically, it's not a joke. I should have known better than to trout fish when the water temperature is 83 degrees. I accept responsibility for this loss to the fishery.

The only redeeming part of this story is the corn kernel in the trout's belly grew to the sky where a great treasure could be found.
