It was truly gorgeous out there on the river today
We sure learned a lot. Trip made us an awesome river side lunch and gave us some more fishing knowledge So we headed down river. A few hours later we hooked a few fish. I actually landed a big trout and when I picked it up for my photo op- I dropped the damn thing right over the side of the boat. I was then pissed. Then came my nose job. We were fishing the right bank. Just as I was about to cast something popped my in the face. It just so happened to be a fly. That just so happened to be attached to Emily's (my trusty travel buddy) rod. It took me a moment to realize that I was hooked in the face. Then I realized it was stuck in my nose. Classy. Then I saw blood. Some minor antic set in, but I tried to keep my cool. I was dreading going to the hospital.
Trip banked us and immediately got out his surgical equipment. He then said, "we can head to the hospital or I can rip it right out and we can keep fishing." I pondered a moment and went with the rip out option.... I even surprised my self on that one. So he ripped it out. Ouch.
After a moment, we headed on down the river. Where we hooked some more trout.
All in all, I'd say it was a good day. I sure learned a ton and added another unique injury to my summer. Tomorrow we head north to Whitefish, Montana. Adios.
