    Hope the board didn't crash. But was camping down at Red's tent cabins this weekend for Red's Rend. III with my son Brad. Of course I was doing the cooking for it. :) Invited my good friend Chuck Tye and his boy David down and of course Chris Scoones. Event went off well, and had a pretty exciting evening around the campfire. Wish I could tell you more about the exciting evening, but my thumb is pretty damned sore so making tying difficult. :)

    Chuck brought his driftboat and I brought my new one. Have yet to test it in the water. Tossed Scoones in the front, Brad in the back, and set sail from Red's down to the Slab. Right off the get go Scoones stuck a fish. Just kept getting better and better as we floated downriver. Skwala hatch came off a bit, and switched to dries. Scoones hooked a hog. Thankfully his burnt thumb allowed him to get this fish in. It was a terrible ordeal, but his thumb didn't stop him from landing the fish. This fish took him yard, was a spunky fighter.

    Was a great day on the water. Good to get out on the water and shoot the shit and stick some fish. Yup, even the guys who run the board get out and fish every now and then. Now back to the bucket so I can soak my sore thumb. ;)

    Nice of you to share the report and even better that you got to fish a little.

    Was a gorgeous day with great company. Chris and I figured we'd let this one slide and post it up. :)

    Thanks for the ride and of course breakfast, Jerry.

    I hope Brad's thumb recovers. Consider keeping him home from school until it has.

    Weather looks good, fish looks good and even Scoones can't ruin that picture. Well done friends. What is with all the burnt/hurt thumbs?

    As I read it, Sounds like they were sitting around the camp fire with their thumbs up their asses.:D

    My son said it best yesterday. "We lost a lot of good thumbs today."

    Well done, boys.

    Your boy has the sense of humor of someone who grew up around a campfire. That kid cracks me up.

    Tough to beat a good campfire conversation. Wish more would follow the campfire rules.

    We got rules for campfires?
    Huh!

    I thought it was for drinking beer, telling lies and fish stories.

    Glad you guys got out and had a good day.
    Any day out is a good day, I guess.

    Campfire rules essentially are about social interaction at its best. If you would say it face to face while relaxing beers or a flask around the campfire then say it online. If not...well then, reconsider. Interweb badasses should stay in grandma's basement.

    Scoones deflowered my boat. Was a damned good day except for an overzealous guy bailing outta my boat and snapping a rod. ;)
