Pics...

A few pics from today....




 
...all from my favorite little spring creek that nobody fishes. In fact, I get some pretty strange looks from people when I fish there.

    I dont usually take a camera with me on the creek, since I sunk one a year or 2 ago. My current camera, for whatever reason, just started to burn through set of batteries each time I take 4 or 5 pics. It used to take at least 50 before replacing the batteries. The warranty just expired, and i'm buying a new one soon, so it looks like I now have a fishing camera.

    That's very cool. I have a place like that too. When I fish it I usually get all of my gear ready & have my wife drop me off so I can just jump out & disappear into the underbrush. I like to keep secrets....

    You should probably get camo waders and a camo fly rod...

    Might be the batteries rather than the camera. Mine started doing the same thing last year, and I tried regular batteries in it which were dead within 10 pics...eventually realized that cameras burn through regular batts unbelievable fast, and even the digital camera-specific batts will eventually get so much memory in them that they wont hold a useful charge.

    Just there?
     

     
    Nah, not just there. I get strange looks when I fish other spots, for example, the FFO water on Yellow Creek. I always thought it was because i'm the only guy not using a wooly bugger.
     
    I also get strange looks when I fly fish for bass on the raystown branch. One gentleman was nice enough to tell me "there ain't no trout in there".

    How do you choose which one to use?  You probably have hundreds.

    Heading to the Little J tonight.  I have an appointment in SC, so will be stopping on the way home.  Won't have computer access after noon.

    Plan on being at Alan's at about 5 PM if you want/can meet.

    Jon,
     
    An old friend (yes, I actually do have them -- LOL) is coming up about mid-week and is bringing his 10-year-old son, so I am going to do some scouting tonight for relatively easy access and/or wading.  The normal places I go aren't good to take a youngster.  And the easy access areas will be crowded. 
     
    I think I know where I want to go, but need to check the depth of the crossing.
     
    If you are driving around, look for my vehicle.  I'll be somewhere within a mile of it.

    I save the latest sucker pic as my desktop and put the hundreds of others into a photobucket slideshow with some theme music.

    Doesn't look like I can make it tonight.

    I love myself I want you to love me
    When I feel down I want you above me
    I search myself I want you to find me
    I forget myself I want you to remind me

    I don't want anybody else
    When I think about you I touch myself
    Ooh I don't want anybody else Oh no, oh no, oh no

    You're the one who makes me come running
    You're the sun who makes me shine
    When you're around I'm always laughing
    I want to make you mine

    I close my eyes And see you before me
    Think I would die If you were to ignore me
    A fool could see Just how much I adore you
    I get down on my knees I do anything for you

    I don't want anybody else
    When I think about you I touch myself
    Ooh I don't want anybody else
    Oh no, oh no, oh no

    I want you I don't want anybody else
    And when I think about you I touch myself
    Ooh, ooh, oo, oo ahh

    I don't want anybody else When I think about you
    I touch myself Ooh I don't want anybody else
    Oh no, oh no, oh no

    I saw the rain comin' and took at nap.      But rain was probably a good thing.

    I fished.  Rain didn't help.  A nap was a better idea.  Worst night on the river this year with regard to bugs and risers.
     
    Heck, I even Dark Sided for about an hour and didn't do anything great.
     
    I don't now whether to call the trip off with my old Friend and his son or not.  I would hate to see them travel 3 hours to get in 15 minutes of fishing.

    My older camera does this too.  Although it is a total pain in the butt, try taking the batteries out when not in use.  If mine has batteries in it for a week, while off, it will drain them.
