North and I had a lovely walk down to the river, what an amazing day. Do you think North...
Ya right... KIDDING
Today is a great day...
Last Thursday Wicket and I took the muts to the river and enjoyed a fish session. Unfortunately, I lacked the information that we would be mountaineering to get there. So -as usual- my summer attire is equipped with board shorts and Chacos. Which on this day proved to be a poor decision.
Once we finally made it to the river -me feeling like a miner who forgot his shoes- I spotted a riser and laid my caddis. Wham!!! Fish-on!!! This continued on for three nice truts. By the third, Wicket had cruised down river. While on my way to catch up with him, I decided to throw one more- Kaboom!!! another. Only this time- Kerplunk, I went down faster than the Titanic. My first instinct after emerging from the water, was to pull my phone out. In the midst of the excitement, I totally spaced my camera. When I finally remembered it, I pulled it out realizing that it had more water on-board than a submarine with screen doors. DAMMIT!!!!!!! Completely soaked and bumming I called it, said later to Wicket and I was out.
Then why is today a great day? You ask! Well, I have been trying to revive the camera since the incident
by placing it with rice in a Ziploc. And- voila- today I put the batteries in and now is back in action.
The fishing is hot right now, and a camera is very much needed...
