    Funny how these two year old threads pop back up on occasion.

    Sent from my little square phone thingy...

    Sometimes for whatever reason when I click the like button, the website stops me and asks "are you sure you want to like this post" on this one its a hell yes.

    Its ok gene I too realized it after the fact. But its a good thread to be bright to the top. Maybe Matt had forgotten it and this reminder will put a smile on his face the rest of the day.

    Only way it could've been better is if it was a can of Rainier.

    This is a pretty fun post to resurrect. That PBR went down pretty dang easy as I recall--much easier than the fully intact, fresh bunch of crisp celery I once found floating in a back eddy at the same spot.

    I like to think about the camp scene that might have led to the celery jettison.

    "Goshdarnit Margaret this rabbit food isn't fit for man nor beast!"
    "Sorry Pa, I dropped the celery by those little piles of white paper."
    "Hey Bocephus Jr., maybe if we launch this celery Ma will have to give us better snacks than Ants-on-a-log."

    Lol, I can only wonder about the circumstances that would cause celery to end up in the water.

    Gotta fish the Cle Elum river for that kind of action. I found this one over the weekend. Also quite a few shoes and sandals, but nothing in my size.

    Oh yeah, that one's been on the spawning grounds a little while--you can tell. Hate to say though, if there ain't no rod, reel, fly, or fly line in the photo, it don't count.
