Friday Bacon!

A little reggaeish bacon tun age for ya, ya mon!

Here's an IDEA for Fall Fest...

, a drift boat obstacle course with a CASH PRIZE.
You've seen the Olympic kayak course, why not with drift boats?

Put in at Indian Country, take out at West Branch Angler, with a dozen or so "obstacles" in between, (each obstacle monitored by an impartial judge), with the lowest time and fewest penalties declared the winner.

Just string a rope across the river, at really inconvenient places, and hang white sticks from them.  If touched, ouch, penalty point.  If missed, ouch, penalty time.

What Guide in his, (or her), right mind wouldn't want to put away a little fast cash before winter?
For kicks you could even throw in an obstacle course for drift boat trailer maneuvering...

Al Troth - Fly Designer

Alfred Carl Troth, of Dillon, Mont., left the world and his beloved fishing holes on Aug. 3. He was 82.
Thank him sometime when you're tying on an Elk Hair Caddis.

I learned alot about Rod Breakage...

this morning. Who knew?
Be nice to your rods.

His name is John Juracek,

and he added at least 20 feet to my cast, (and Curli's), in a bout 5 minutes of casting analysis and coaching with the Echo Micro practice rod.  Thank you!

Here are the "official" instructions for use of the yarn rod.

Wonder how he processed the video to get the interesting "painted" effect?

Does this guy & fish look familiar?
