On a recent three day float, the guy that originated this thread put everyone in ahead of him. Over the first couple days, he wouldn't take a run on his home river. Every time I'd come floating along, he'd be at the head,waiting, waving me over- You gotta swing this, it's juicy, juicy..... you'll love it, swings killer nice.
If not me, RD was the recipient. Finally, day three rolls around, we're about out of the float, RD and I wage a war of manners, insist he goes through first or we're just floating out.
Yard finally capitulates, and starts at the head, RD and I hanging back, visiting, taking a few pictures. 5th, 6th cast of the run, I turn in time to see a sweet cast lay out and about 12 inches into the drift, a fish pounds the fly an inch under the surface. Gorgeous, amazing and so fun to see your generous friend hook up with the only fish of the weekend.
Next trip, around the fire at night, we're going to help him practice with his knots.
