For most days spent on the water I cannot come home and say I was one up on Dustin. There have been a few times that I have out fished him, but for the most part Dustin out fishes me. On Sunday, however, I was one up. While, we both caught the same number of fish, and even missed one obvious hit a piece, I was the victor.
As Dustin reeled in a beautiful brown, he reached for the camera. This is the first fish of the day, and in true brownie fashion, is quite the looker. I watch Dustin turn on the camera, and align the shot, only to hear him say “No Memory Card.” I snickered. How do you bring the camera, but neglect to check for a memory card? Congratulations sir, here is your “Bonehead Award”. Of course I only thought this to myself, as he was already bummed enough. After he released the brown, he asked if I had my phone, and luckily I did, so we weren’t totally without pictures. We snapped a couple of the fish, but to be honest my memories are much better than the camera phone pics, and for the most part it remained in my pocket. However, I was the one that spared us a few pictures. Finally, a day where Dustin was the bonehead on the river, not me!
Again today, the fish seemed to like the Go-2 Prince, although I had a brown take a Lazy Boy. I just love catching fish on that prince. Dustin also had a first cast catch on a pheasant tail. Lucky for us, the fish seemed to be in a responsive mood. We had a fun afternoon, sprinkled with a little snow, and just a bit of wind. I’m going to go ahead say, I doubt Dustin goes to the river again with an empty memory card slot.
