Spent my whole life lookin' back
 Not lookin' ahead to see
 Trying to keep my feet on track
 Doin' what was expected of me
 Kick my shoes off so they can't trace me
 Leave no forwarding address
 Before they all drive me crazy
 And I leave 'em all in a bloody mess

We were down stream from the bridge. Lots and lots of good folks just a throwin line and partying. Definitely a cultural event. I took a lot of reference photos from a number of fish.

I had no idea those type of fish were in that river when we were there last year, might have traded in our fly gear for something heavier had we known that. Nice fish.  Are we still on for the weekend?

I've snagged bigger logs than that. Hard case looking fish looks like a cross between a shark and platterpus.

They sure are pre-historic looking things!  Very cool, like sturgeon, just seem like nothing else out there...

Funny when people can tell you where your secret spot is from the photo background.
