|Al as a 2009 CfR River Helper|
Cody Bell was nowhere to be found, neither was his chair, his 4# rod, my 4# rod; no sign of the Boy anywhere. So I headed back down to the river and continued to walk farther downstream. As I walked along the elevated path, I noticed some beautifully deep runs that just looked fishy from the bank. I ended up almost to the second and most visible Dinosaur tracks, and there were a slew of Boy Scouts (skipping stones upstream--ugh!), and I knew Cody Bell would be nowhere around that place. I headed back up to towards the pavilion and finally ran into my man. Cody had been hiking, and he was tired and sweaty and not dressed to fish. I listened to his tale, and the man must have hiked a mile or so around this section of river--crazy, yes!
Cody and I met up on the path, and I had fished past dinner. I changed clothes, talked with friends, enjoyed the raffles, and tried to snap some photos, but my camera battery is way past needing a charge--it is d-e-a-d! Someone found and turned in my fly box, so I was able to get it back. We vowed to see friends on the water, at rod-building, or at the next meeting, and off for home we went. When I think back on the day, the camaraderie, the laughter, the fun, and the fish, I know Al was once again with his fly fishing club.

Prepared to catch fish, I explained where the previous Friday's honey hole was located, we selected our spots, and began to cast. Before long it was FishOn! for Cody Bell. Bam! I followed and we were FishOn! double. Cody called that his Rainbow Trout was big enough to keep and so we paddled towards the middle. I wasn't paying attention and accidentally let my trout out of the net. Cody stocked the creel with his catch and challenged me to catch some supper, and catch we did. Cody ended up catching 18 fish for the day, and I caught 13.
