    he showed her permit and she walked off real friendly gal

    her and robin talked a bit down by the river

    i asked walt if that happened alot

    he said she sees him about 3 or 4 times a week :lol3

    a little saftey talk and we were on the river

    we lauched from deadmans bar

    way back when 3 guys panning this area went to town and hired a polish man

    when they got him back to here they were so rough on the man that he finally killed em

    and he buried them up to their necks right there

    and he won self defense

    robin had been fussing for 6 months she didn't know how to fly fish

    i kept telling her it would be ok

    we stopped at a spot for some fly fishing lessons

    i don't think she was hating it

    [​IMG]


    now i've fly fished a little 20 years ago in streams about 3 foot wide

    she'd never tried it

    so after class we started down riiver

    i tell ya i took way to many pictures


    [​IMG]


    fish started hitting us as soon as we sit off


    but after a bunch of hits robin was the first to get one in the boat
