Let's go fishing Dude

Moderate level of depression around here, due to the assault on public employees. A guy can take the lowest salary of all his college buddies in the course of serving the public and still be attacked as having too much. Layoff the taxing of the wealthy; instead take pensions and salaries from pisant public employees. Jesus, who wants to get into that. The point of it as intro material is that one of few escapes is to get out and see planet earth as it's meant to be seen: in reality. In dirt and water and the perfect geometry. Hold some fish. I worship fish 100x more than any politician. For the record that is. If a guy sits around languishing at the house with all the pixels and soundwaves - man - he's going to die right there. Depression and disrespect floating around. So he needs to leave and remember that even if all goes to hell it really isn't a lot more than pixels and little grooves written into silicone media somewhere that represent bank accounts. If it goes to hell he can take advice from Greg Brown and become a hippy in a tent. A much more valorous endeavor anyway. So that's the point here: remind onself of the great Walter Sobchak: Fuck it Dude, let's go bowl. Or if you're in the Midwest, fish.

Before I get into the report, one more thing on the plan to attack the 2% of the state expenditures that goes to state government: suck it Trbek.

Fished 11 AM to 3 PM
One of few streams that was not blown out
Nymphed all day with standard PT and HE
Saw a couple small black stoneflies
Midges were about
Waited for rising fish but they never came
Water was very clear
Probably 15 fish caught, of which several were decent, one pretty nice

Danny came along on this day. He didn't execute all components of fishing, but he did about what would be expected of a ~4 year old kid. Fought some fish, unhooked a few, held and released a lot of them.

This little brown came on the second cast. The action was right to keep things moving along. Paced very well. Picture confirms that he gets pretty excited about fish.






This water gave up at least six trout. Even after Danny threw multiple sticks at it. The red line delineates the drift. Up past the overhanging veg, mend to right and drift through slot. Take. Take. Etc. One nice fish came here.


You can see that his fish holding got better as the day ticked by.


This pic requires some explanation. I regularly urge the kids to place fish back in the water after a short examination and appropriate respects paid. They don't always comply immediately. So as I was urging Danny on I cast again and caught another trout. Kid asked to hold two trout and I couldn't say no. Both fish swam off puzzled but okay. Kid was fascinated.



The guy is an impermeable warrior when it comes to water, mud, temperatures, discomfort, etc. He walks in over his boot tops without pause or complaint. Within half an hour he was covered in mud and pretty much soaked. My honest assessment is that his attention is on exploration, goofing around, singing/chanting, asking questions, etc. enough so that he glosses over discomfort. I did what I could to keep him in good shape, and he did more than his part with respect to keeping on. This outing served as a prompt though to get my kids waders. They won't need them but for certain situations; would be good for days like this one.






Yellow Sally aka Golden Stone




So this guy logged a winter trout fishing outing before his fourth birthday. One of my favorite days for sure.

dude, I feel your pain. I know other folks can try and offer an olive branch, but they just don't know. You and I are both in the same boat. If the SHTF, I'll be making camp alongside you. Just remember, it doesn't take electricity to make sausage so we can still have some righteous sustenance while the others are busy stuffing their fat wallets with our 2%. We can share the wine.

My greatest hope for America is that cognitive dissonance at last sets in and the general angry tide of anti-everything finally turns. Anti-science. Anti-labor. Anti-honesty. Anti-empathy. Anti-reasonable.

Meanwhile, you took your kid fishing. The boy's face tells me you've got your priorities right. And so does he!

More great news over lunch meeting today: Republican-controlled committees have introduced legislation that would:

(1) Cut state work force by 15%
(2) Reduce all state salaries by 6%
(3) Cut pensions
(4) Eliminate health care benefits

Solid stuff there. Morale was not high for afternoon work session. Nothing like knowing that people despise you man.

I think you're right: we will be poaching trout and deer, drinking out of mud puddles together.

In all seriousness: happy to take my lumps. I know things aren't great right now and I can take some lumps. What I want is for those lumps to be proportional to "our" share of the deficit problem. That seems fair.

The fact is, if Republicans want to solve the deficit problem without raising taxes, they will have to take from our kids or our elderly. The wrath of the math is that simple. Go look at the expenditures pie chart at MMB website. State government: 2% of budget.

Information is scarce though, and when found, it's shakey. That allows politicians to pivot on fear-mongering to push their agendas.

The anti-tide is frustrating. Depressing and frustrating. Nothing like knowing that people despise you.

But: fuck it Dude, let's go bowl.

Good report, excellent photos. Glad you got some good time in with the water, brought the kid and still managed to do right by him, the fish and yourself. Hard to do with a ~4 year old, comendable. Think how many kids get left with someone else or alone when their adult keepers choose to take care of their needs be it by drinking, running, reading, going "out", or fishing. The thing here is I know you mentally sacraficed the day before you left, I mean you may have had some hopes but I've got to think fishing with a young one can turn sour quickly but you stuck it out. He's lucky, wish I'd have gotten some of those experiences growing up. Think, someday you'll be landing his trout. Just freakin' awesome.

Politics sucks. Bummer your affected by it. State salaries....good to know though that the people working for the MPCA arn't in it for the money, sad as that sounds but I want those protecting our resources to be their for the LOVE of it, not the paycheck. I just worry it could slip and be not enough to support good hard working people and their fishing families or whatnot.

Final note: Bug pictures rock. I liked the stones and that Macafertium nymph the most, looks like that Baetis nymph is a bit out yet but others are ready for sure.

Rough, yet inspiring post all in one here J. I read through the docs you sent me the other day and hope you find a way to fight that horseshit. I might not be local anymore but let me know if there is a way I can support you guys from afar. How the he'll can people be in favor of this?

For the record, I am jealous of your ability to put these outings together with your kids. I am still struggling trying to piece those trips together...this year might be the year.

Appreciate the notes - good reflections on kids, bugs, fish, jobs.

Still bumming a bit on this.

Case in point: yesterday, at a four-way stop some guy pulled up alongside, looked at us, at the state car, and gave us the finger.

Depressing.


So: time to go fishing.
