Flatswalker has been posting some Friday Cheer through “The Most Interesting Guide in the World” posts. I’ve been a fan.
I thought I might suggest a few musings of my own on this elite angler.
He’s never fished a mud.
Were he to ever count the fish landed it would represent a fully complete census.
He can carry all his line in the air… his backing too.
His bonefishing flies are so beautiful that a Russian Billionaire recently tried to buy one for $15,000,000, but they are not for sale.
He can cast a fly in a glass at 80′, with the glass up-side-down… on his back cast.
The sun does not dare to burn him.
He once polled into a 30 knot wind to chase down a 14 pound bonefish, for 4 miles.
All his knots are 100% knots… some are even 200%
He has never had a windknot.
He has never spooked a fish he didn’t see. He sees all fish.
He doesn’t take pictures of fish because he has a photographic memory, which he shares on Flickr.
His shrimp patterns are so realistic that other shrimp often try to mate with them… and are sometimes succesful.
I don’t always get to fish myself,
but when I do, I prefer not to nymph for steelhead in the rain,
but I will if I have to…
Stay salty (and warm) my friends.

I love this one:
“He doesn’t take pictures of fish because he has a photographic memory, which he shares on Flickr.”
Classic… wish I had thought of that one.
I kind of cracked myself up on that one.
