Sometimes you should have just stayed home. Last night was not good. To start the night of sombody stole my bluegills that I use for bait. I kept them in a bucket in the creek by my house. It took me Another hour to get more bait. Next I get to the launch and relize that my box with hooks Etc... is at home. Two hours later than I had planed I'm fishing. Next I hook a huge fish. He came right at the boat and I thought I might be able to net him, So I reach for the net and step on the dog just as the fish gives a giant head shake and rips the rod right out of my hand and into the river. I decide to on. My anchor is set out of the water on a log on the back side of a log jam. I lean out to pluck it off the log and next thing I know I'm smimming. Went all the way under. It's time to go home. I had all my cloths on and my Gore-Tex Bibs. My jacket was was in the boat. I striped down and put just the jacket and bibs on. I have a 40 minute run to make back to the launch and its not warm out. By the time I got back to the lunch I was about frozen. If I did not have the Gore-tex gear I would have been spending the night by a fire on the side of the river.
