The Things We Do For Fishing...

By Tim Romano & Kirk Deeter

Imgp0301web_3

Some times you do really stupid and painful things, like glissading (see video below) down the backside of the Gore Range. Last weekend Jeff Rogers and I slipped, slid, fell and basically punished our bodies for a half day of fishing. For this stupidity I received a couple of stitches on my left knee, my shin is a giant scab, and my right thigh looks as if someone took a baseball bat to it. Oh, and did I mention it rained all of the first night.   It takes one day to get in to this secret lake and another to get out.  A bit short for a weekend.

Was it worth it? Based on the fact that we caught only four or five fish for this beating, maybe not. On the flip-side we didn't see another human being, the fish we caught were wild strong fish and most likely had never seen a fly. We mingled with mountain goats and camped at perhaps the best campsite on the planet.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger........right?
