I Can’t Fish. I Can’t Row.

The adrenalin rush of big browns eating big bugs was the only panancea that could ease the pain of the walking (nay fishing) wounded. The Professor has a vicious case of tendonitis in his elbow while I have lower back pain again. His hurts while playing fish, mine hurts pulling up the anchor. After catching this monster brown, and jumping out of the boat to land it downstream, the Professor announced, “I can’t fish anymore.”

To which I rubbed my back and replied, “Perfect, I can’t row.”

It was all worth it as we hobbled up the boat ramp at day’s end…

    Nice photo, great fish! It’s been tough over in our area, but we have masses of mosquitoes! Rest up and we hope you both get over your aches and pains.

    Nice pics, but I am having just a teensy bit of trouble dredging up any sympathy for your aches and pains! Not when you are posting these kinds of pics! (ok-I admit it, I’m just jealous)

    Enjoy the rest of your trip.

    FFC and Prof,

    Fished the Hank yesterday myself; headed back for more grey drakes tomorrow. Guiding out of Jackson, WY; gimme a holler if you need someone to row!

    Safe trip and tight lines,

    Wow. Congrats to you and the Prof. Nice browns!

    Judging by the photos, I’m betting that the aches and pains were not even noticed until the catching was done.
