Last day on the job

Post by pav » Sat Jun 21, 2008 10:12 pm

Friday was my last day on this sales job and I knew I was going to do my Kerrville route, so i brought my flyrods cause I was gonna come back on hi-way 16 and there was this honey hole right next to the road I wanted to try. It was about noon when I got there and I tied on a black Chips fathead minnow, changed into my shorts and ball cap and proceeded to fish and wham a nice chunky bass hit and broke my line, it was a nice fish. I worked my way around the lake and caught a few more bass, ranging from a pound to about 3. I also caught a few chunky perch. I got to this one part of the lake and it was about 12 feet deep and you could see to the bottom with all these fish. I could not resist so I jumped in and went for swim; after a few laps I got out and fished some more and caught some more perch. I was too wet to get into my truck so I changed back into my slacks and polo shirt and continued to get ready to leave, and all of a sudden I see one of those gas powered mules by Honda or something and the dude driving it had a badge. He thanked me for not keeping any of the fish and that he got a call that a naked man was at the lake, I said really and he said yes that 2 women where hiking and they saw me. I explained that i was just trying to relieve some stress and vacation a little. I told him it has been about a year that i have not done any fishing. He said he understood, and asked me if I was aware who owned this property, "no?" I said "Who?" "A battered women's shelter," the officer replied. He said they were not going to press charges cause they did not see much!!!! LOL
put off everything to go flyfishing
